you'd have to have a place to fit a sender (probably in the sump pan with a nut welded on the inside).
just a normal VDO gauge with a matching sender would do it.
wire it up and ther should be no reason why it wouldn't read like your coolant temp gauge.

What sort of temperature does gearbox oil usually get up to?

Dunno how hot... over 100 I spose. I was thinking of putting a T piece fitting with the sender screwed into it and mounted on the outlet of one of the coolers?
