Out cooler line - Deck it on trans brake.

Should not exceed 130 psi.

Servo cover - Low and high gear holding car still on footbrake. Read pressure above 2000 rpms where it tops out.

Should be 180 psi to around *250 psi - Min-Max.

*could be a little more

Update got look at his car last night. The temp sending unit is mounted on them wheelwell of the car about 8 inch's from the header... We all know this isn't ideal. And it has a small log cooler mounted under the car. Ordering a proper cooler to mount in front of the fan on the radiator. There's nothing wrong with the transmission. Within 5 mins of the car running temp gauge was 160 while the trans pans wasnt even warm yet. All the engine compartment heat played a factor in false temp

For the pressure check you might also have a port in the side of the transmission with a plug in it, that's for reverse pressure. Some stock cases had it drilled, others there is just a boss that can be drilled and tapped.
To the OP I would still do a pressure test. Do the test and save the readings. In the future if there is a problem a pressure test to compare might pinpoint the problem.
