Wiring Console Gauge help needed....
I apologize in advance for having so many questions. I've tried searching and couldn't find the answers, so I decided to ask my fellow Camaroians.
I've got a few questions after a day of head scratching. I'm doing a column to floor shifter conversion. I purchased two harnesses in order to do this. The console conversion harness (Rick's 6806) and a console harness (with factory gauges)
(1) Is 6806 the right harness for me? On the conversion harness there are two connectors, 1 plugs into to console harness, what does the other side plug into?
(2) Since I'm using a B&M shifter, what do I do with two lights that go under the shifter. The B&M comes with a light connection which I could tap into for 1. Also, any ideas on how to do neutral/backlight with B&M?
(3) Where do the ground wires hook up to the gauges? Also, does it matter which way the amp meter connection goes on? Does black/white wire need to be on a certain prong?
(4) Why does the lower gauge (oil and fuel) have a hole in the center that looks similar to the bulb holes?
Finally, why are there no instructions that come with the actual gauges?
If anyone is in the Philly/Wilmington DE area and want to tackle this job I'll make it worth you while. The pride of doing this job on my own has official flew the coop.
