Okay this is the first of probably five separate posts. I am installing the autometer guage pod and factory tach in a non-guage car. The good news is I have the instrument cluster, dash pad, and rest of interior completely out. I want to start with fuel guage. The clip is hanging there where I disconnected the old factory one. Couldn't I simply use those wires to connect to new guage? Which connect to which?

What are the choices, and wheres the autometer instructions?

In the car, tan goes to sender, black is ground and pink is switched 12V. Don't have any idea what color wires are which on the autometer gauge itself.

On the guage, the one with the red tag on it that says "don't connect this to 12 volts" is the sender, the others are labelled, and the directions are very clear. Tan wire goes to the one with the red tag.

A few more questions about splicing in the autometer guage pod. Please note I have the main instrument cluster out so I can access everything.
1) Where is the recommended place to splice into the power the for lights? Can I just take it from the tach or speedo light bulb harness? Will that effect the brightness of that light?
2) Where is the best place to get the ignition power for the guages? From somewhere on the fuse panel or from something convenient like radio or heater power?
3) What about recommended volt meter connections?
Opinions including wire colours would be appreciated.
