Question OEM gauge plug and autometer gauges

I'm in the process of wiring my 67 RS and i've got a basic question.

I'm removing the stock gauge cluster and replaceing it with 2 autometer gauges (speedo and tach). My question is, when wiring in the new autometer gauges, what are people doing with the original plug that use to go to the stock gauge cluster? Are you just clipping it off and using what wires you need? or are you tapping the new wires just ahead of the old plug so you dont have to cut it off?

I assume no one makes an adapter plug (similar to a radio wiring kit) which plugs into the the stock plug and has leads from there.


What are you all doing here.

Thanks,
Kyle

Re: OEM gauge plug and autometer gauges

I'm not sure what other guys are doing but any time I change anything from stock, I try to keep as much as I can in case I ever want to change things back. Those harnesses are expensive so I'd find a way to wrap it with electrical tape and conceal up out of the way under the dash. Nobody will ever see it what way and you'll know you can always return it back to original if you don't like the auto meter set up.

Re: OEM gauge plug and autometer gauges

Thanks for your response. The more i got to thinking about it, the more i feel the same as what you mentioned. Since there isnt an adapter plug (didnt think there would be honestly) i'm either going to snip off the plug with about 2 inches of wire left on it incase i decided to reinstall, or just solder back about an inch or 2 and tape the plug so it cant come in contact with someting it shouldnt.

Thanks for the advise.
