Guages that work

Instead of messsing with the old ones, I messed with new ones.

Gosh its dark. I have a lighted rear view mirror coming to remedy this.

You can't see it too well but the fuel guage is a pod unit next to the release
handle of the parking brake

The guages are sunpro, but came with a ammeter instead of voltmeter.
The ammeter needs ALL of the power between the battery and altenator
running under your dash hooked through it to work (almost enough power to weld with)
The replacement voltmeter on the left jumps 12V power off the starter switch above it.
The temp guage signal comes from the unit between cylinder 1 & 3,
The oil pressure comes from the tan wire off the oil pressure unit on the back of the engine.
When started, the guage reads 70 lbs cold. :)
Check out the cool 1980's knight rider guages
Michael, you are coming up on a turn too fast, autodrive on.
Just getting warmed up

After 15 minutes idling :)

"short" todo list:
brakes and lines, axles- either regear or replace and regear,
seats and belts & test drive
