I'm working on my 69 console gauges, they weren't hooked up. Does anyone have have the prints for the console area. My Chassis book doesn't cover this. Also, what terminals on the temp gauge get hooked up and where does the resistor sit on the four studs. thanks scott

Hope this helps....let me know if you need more info. What prints are you talking about?
There is a lot of good info in the assembly manual. There is also alot of info on this site reprinted from a magazine...in sure somebody else can link it for you.

When I first installed my gages, the temp gage didn't work. Turned out I had the two leads crossed, so as it got hot. The gage read colder. because it was pegged. It didn't move. Maybe it's that simple.

Al and Mat,
i got the wiring done on my temp.gauge, thanks for the photo. i was working on my car yesterday trying to trace some more wiring. i still don't know if the pink wire is hot(12v.). it comes from a terminal off the bottom of my steering column just above the floor board. scott

That's the low fuel light relay (for lack of a better term). It is wired across the fuel gauge terminals and turns on the FUEL light in the left dash pod when you get down somewhere around 2 gallons of gas in the tank. It doesn't have a light in it, the original ones have a light socket base attached to the end that is used to attach it to the metal base of the gauge cluster. Reproduction ones are available but don't have the light socket on them.
