Where is ground for the fuel gauge on cluster?

I recently replaced all the bulbs in my gauge cluster of my 75 and cleaned it up a bit. Upon reassembly the fuel gauge does not work. I can't remember if there was a ground strap or something I forgot to hook back up...Anyone know?

I think everything on that year is in the printed circuit. I'd have to see a wiring diagram to be sure but my guess is only one black wire in the plug for the ground so if everything else works (dash lights ETC) the problem might be something besides the ground.

The fuel gauge doesnít work or the fuel gauge bulb doesnít work? The fuel gauge meter gets its ďgroundĒ from the sender in the gas tank. If itís not working either the sender is broken or not connected or the gauge doesnít have 12 volts connected.

Re: Where is ground for the fuel gauge on cluster?

Thanks guys..
Here is what I found after taking the cluster back out of the car.. The printed circuit has a break in it on the ground side of the fuel gauge so I created a jumper wire to a ground screw pictured below. You can see the break in the circuit..
Works great now.
