Re: 3 gauge cluster
I've always used Stewart/Warner gauges and the metal three gauge bracket.
I also used mechanical gauges as I am a mechanical type. Electric would fine, but an extra power would be needed.
The two screws holding on the ashtray mount to the dash is an excellent place to mount the panel and it can be used as a return for electrics.
2 1/16 inch gauge work well. I used the mechanic temp gauge with the Bourdon tube/sensor so you will have to drill a large hole for the sensor to fit through as the sensor is integral to the gauge or use the clutch block-off plate if Camaro is auto equipped in running the tube through the firewall.
I used mech oil gauge as the gauge reacts faster - be sure to purge the oil line - air is compressible and not get a fast reacting gauge. I also used a HVAC 1/8 inch copper tube as it has a thicker wall thickness and does not work harden as thinner wall tubing does - see your local HVAC tech/store for some.
Volts is easy enough to pick off from the fuse panel - IGN oe ACC spade.
I also wired the gauge lighting with ACC power to the gauge set so the gauges light up without turning on lights. Solder all connections and cover with shrink tubing.
Always follow the manf instructions.
