That sounds like a great plan. You won't have any issues and with a gauge and cooler you will be able to monitor what's going on with your trans. I'm not sure if the older transmissions run hotter (I'd bet they do at least a little) but for reference, my trans has never gone over about 180 deg even when towing in FL heat. So I'd say if you start climbing above 200 deg you should start considering that as "too hot".
