Covans Gauges

What do I need to do convert my electrical gauges to mechanics?
I am thinking of doing a covans gauge swap, with the whole kit from them, but how do I switch my idiot light wiring, to mechanics? or will it just work when I hook it up?

No it wont just work you will need sending units for oil press. water temp and any other gauges you are going to be adding.

Re: Covans Gauges

If you want your dash lights to continue working you will need to keep the sensors they are connected to in place and add the parts for the mechanical gauges.
