Original gas gauge

I'm getting close to putting the wiring back on my car the way it was supposed to be from the factory. It has console gauges, but didn't come that way, had a hacked wiring job for them and I bought a retrofit wiring kit from Auto Wire for it. This is the problem. I pulled out wires and replaced them as the kit stated to wire the gauges correctly. Now that I am going back I have to figure out how to reverse that. Is there any diagrams that show what the wiring is supposed to be on a console equipped car vs. a gauge car? IE. The amp gauge wiring compared to the idiot light wiring under the hood? Under the dash is pretty easy to figure out but all the wiring diagrams I have seem to show a blend of both under the hood.

Re: Original gas gauge

I've had some diagrams posted for years but they are from the 80's. Someone may know of some better quality diagrams. Mine are here.

Re: Original gas gauge

Did the console gauge option eliminate the gen light?

I have some real nice diagrams for a 69 for both with and w/o console gauges, and they both show wiring for the gen light. I'd assume 68 should be very similar.

I just replaced the front light harness on my 69 with an AAW factory fit, and there a harness for "with gauges" and one for "w/o gauges", and I assume the difference is the ammeter wiring.

I can e-mail you the diagrams I have if you'd like.

Re: Original gas gauge

In all of the 67-68s I've had the Gen light was replaced with a low fuel light.

Re: Original gas gauge

Well, mine has the tach in it so the lights are correct for that with the fuel light and brake light. This was added and I have an original speedo with gas gauge so I'm set to go. I just remember doing the wiring with some black/white wire to the horn relay for the alt gauge and wanted to make sure the front end was back to the way it's supposed to be for idiot lights. I have the AIM and service manuals which all have wiring diagrams, but each one is a little different. I will check the one posted and see if that will do it.
