I've done a search on the topic and still have a few ?'s. Where exactly does the ground for the gauges from the wiring harness get attached? I see the pre-drilled hole in the rear plate for a jumper wire to screw from, but where is the best place on the front plate to go to? Do the temp. and fuel gauges need separate grounds run to the pre-drilled hole for a ground?
I had a jumper attached from the pre-drilled hole on the rear plate to the bottom post on the fuel gauge, along with the ground from the harness and it sparked at the battery.
My car is a '68 auto. with factory console gauges and all new wiring.
