67 console gauges conversion

I'm planning on installing console gauges in my 67 RS. The car has never had gauges before, and I am trying to find out what harnesses I will need. I already ordered the gauges which have the low fuel warning module. In the catalog I also saw the low fuel warning sender module part # CG-24 and the lens for it. Is that what comes with the gauges or do I have to buy that separately for the dash? I need to buy the tachometer yet, but what I really need to know is what wiring harnesses I will need to complete the conversion. I looked in a Ricks Camaro's catalog and found:

Part #6706 console gauge conversion harness
Part #70655 console harness-with factory gauges
Part #71982 engine wiring harness small block with gauges

Do I need all of these harnesses for the conversion? Also, do I need to buy a whole new under dash harness? (Listed below)

Part #70651 Console shift with factory console gauges.

That's a lot of questions, but I am totally new to this conversion. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 67 console gauges conversion

I did the gauge conversion on mine. From what I can remember, You'll need the following:
1) Under dash harness for console gauges
2)Console gauge wiring harness that connects to the main under dash harness
3)Engine harness for your tach (that has the connection for the coil)
4)Console wiring harness (I believe you'll need this one for the N/S switch and console lights)
Also some wiring diagrams are helpful...Get an assembly manual if you don't have one yet.
5) Alot of patience Good luck!

Re: 67 console gauges conversion

I am trying to do the conversion also. Is it possible to do it without changing the under dash harness? I replaced all the harnesses except that one, but am having trouble with which wire goes where.

Re: 67 console gauges conversion

I believe that you would have to replace the main harness when doing the conversion because of the tach, unless you can splice into the wire that goes to the coil for the tach. In my opinion it's better to get the correct harness for the tach and gauges with the correct colored wires to make it as easy as possible to install. It will save you from alot of headaches and problems that might happen in the long run.
