1967 console gauges

Hello, I just rewired my 1967 camaro with a painless kit. My gas guage and temp guage on console do not seem to be working. I believe there should be a 12 volt hot wire to each gauge, signal wire to each gauge and it gets its ground from the enclosure. Is this correct. how do I know which prong is for signal and which is for hot 12V.

One other thing I noticed is that when I pulled my car out from the garage to the driveway my speedometer did not seem to work. I had it disconnected at the dash when installing the new wiring. Anyone ever have this happen.

Re: 1967 console gauges

Kris,

Yes, there should be a + wire going to both. According to my AAW kit it is a pink wire with 2 terminal ends. Have a look at the link below as the AAW instructions are so much better than the Painless. They have a nice picture of which wire goes where in the back side of the gauge cluster. I'm guessing should be same as yours. Tan for the fuel sending unit wire and green for the temp sending unit.

Re: 1967 console gauges

Thanks alot, that shows the terminals perfect. Would you happen to have a similiar link that shows 1967 printed circuit board for RPM and speedometer module.

Re: 1967 console gauges

There is this, but it doesn't show the circuit board itself, only which pins to connect which wire for. I thought I had a better diagram, but can't find it at the moment. The pcb is pretty simple to track as there aren't too many circuits and it's easy to see the routing of the wire.

If you can't get this link(wasn't working for me at the moment here in China) send me a pm and I can email the file I have on disk.

Sorry, I'm not at home, I could have snapped a photo of the back of mine as it's out at the moment and photoshopped in the routing wires.

Re: 1967 console gauges

Do you mean the tach isn't working? You said speedometer... How fast do you pull out of the garage? ;-) If it was in reverse, you wouldn't get anything, anywayz. lol

Tach is brown wire, upper left when looking at the back of the gauges. Trace goes to left nut on back of tach.

Re: 1967 console gauges

My tach is working but I didn't have a diagram. I was just curious if someone had one. I was not going fast at all coming out of the garage. I am hoping I did not damage the speedometer cable puting it back on. One thing though, my car just got back from body shop in December and the body shop forgot to plug it back in, so it did not work when I picked it up then. Maybe there is something wrong with the other end, they might have left it off there.

Re: 1967 console gauges

Ah. Yah, I'd check to see if both ends of the cable are connected...

Here are a couple pictures of the back of the instruments. You can trace everything out easily... I took a picture of the back of my '68 instruments and used MS Paint to add color to the traces to make it easy to tell what is what...
