Trans Cooler upgrade

No lift. No heat. No power. No water. Just a rented space across town barley big enough for the car itself to fit. Can't even open the car doors inside.
I need to first spread the cardboard on the pavement, squeeze past it to the rear, push the car out, jack it up, and slide underneath. Can't even use a creeper. The surface texture of the ageing pavement is too poor to allow it to roll. Rain, snow, freezing cold, and even nightfall itself makes the whole debacle absolutely brutal.

I obviously don't live for much more than this. But I love it.
WOW! That’s insane dude! I’m glad I live in the sticks where space is not at such a premium. I don’t know how you do it, I really don’t. Kudos to your dedication. Fully understand the love of these cars though. It’s undeniable and once it bites you, your done for.

Isn't there a port on a 200 where a temp sensor can be threaded in already? How about adding a temp port fitting in the cooler supply line?

I'm sure I had mine threaded into a port. It's been a few years though. Could I be remembering incorrectly?
There is the port on the drivers side where you check trans pressures and I suppose it could be checked there , but that port sees 300psi and would be easier to leak , just my thought . I plan on putting one inline just so I have an idea of the temp but Dave suggested in the pan .
I was wondering what you would do with all the extra time you would have , if you did have a lift and a well stocked & lit garage ??

That must have been where I had mine. Didn't leak though. Thank God.

I would keep doing what I have always been doing. But everything would just come out better. Most times I get disgusted with much of the things I try to accomplish due to the inability to complete them as I imagined them.

Please post some pictures of it mounted.
I like it. Doesn't come on unless I'm in a lot of traffic, with 90+ degree temps. I have it pushing down through the cooler right now, but might flip it. Seems to move more air as a puller. I'm not using the radiator and probably wont in the winter either.
