Re: help with gauges
A common problem with dash gauges is the ground point at the top center of the cluster. It's easy to forget the little metal piece that grounds to the top center dash screw. Also seems like you can assemble it incorrectly and have a grounding problem.
I'm not aware of anyone posting a picture of it, but if you search you may find some helpful posts. A lot of guys have just grounded their instrument panel with a separate ground wire to the dash or pedal bracket to avoid the headache with the factory ground.
