  1. Mystery Console Gauge Fitting/Ferrule

    Camaro Tech
    I am trying to hook up the oil pressure gauge on my set of OER console gauges. As I understand it, they are supposed to be direct replacement for the original factory gauges. When trying to attach a standard oil pressure line it clearly didn’t fit the fitting – the ferrule was the wrong style...
  2. DIY interior thread

    Camaro Tech
    Hello all, I bought a 1968 Camaro SS 350 v8 restomod and was hoping to work on it myself as much as I can. I do not have much experience in doing installs. I normally have shops do the work since I had one car and couldn't risk dissembling parts and not being able to put it back together. Now...

    Pro Touring
    Hey Guys, I'm looking for someone who has installed a Classic Dash (aka "Thunder Road") 4 gauge center gauge panel. Classic Dash and Classic Industries sell them: (http://www.classicindustries.com/product/1967/camaro/parts/167254.html). The panel does not have a lip on the top edge...
  4. Amp gauge reads high after alternator swap

    Electrical & Wiring
    I'm installing factory air in my 69 so I installed a 55 amp alternator to replace the 37 amp. Just went for a ride and it runs great but the ammeter was almost pegged at the top of the scale. With my 37 amp alternator, it used to read between half and three quarters. Nothing else has changed...
  5. 1967 console clock internal wiring.

    Camaro Tech
    One of the coils in my clock has burned open. I miked the wire and I get .011 inches. Roughly a gauge 30 magnet wire. My problem is when the coil smoked it burned away the connection so I'm not sure where to attach it. The great video on the forum is unfortunately for the small console clock in...
  6. Mounting OER Speedo and Tic-Toc-Tach

    Interiors
    Can someone confirm that the OER speedo and tach (stock replacement) is mounted in some sort of carrier that is mounted behind the dash? For the life of me, I can't find one for sale on line. The assembly manual shows a piece that covers the back ends of the gauges, but I don't think it calls...

    Apologies in advance for the volume of information but I want to give as much data as possible. I'm in the process of adding gauges and am working through the dash wiring.

  8. Auto Meter Gauges not fitting...

    Interiors
    I'm installing Auto Meter Cobalt gauges. 3 in the console (water, oil, fuel) are already installed. Started on the Spedometer and Tach in the dash housing today and ran into a snag. I've posted a few pics below but basically the chrome trim ring prevents the gauge from fully seating in the...
  9. dash light / running light question

    Electrical & Wiring
    I have a 68 Camaro standard coupe. A few years back I wired the car with a painless wiring kit. At the time everything worked fine but the car sat for a few years now I am having trouble getting my running lights and dash lights working. I have replaced the headlight switch and made sure the...

  12. 69 Camaro Console Temperature Gauge Problems

    Electrical & Wiring
    I have a 69 Camaro RS/SS with console gauges and the temp gauge is not working properly. I have tried to find the solution on this site but not sure I've seen it so hope this is not a repeat... I thought the gauge was bad so I bought a new OER gauge from NPD and hooked it up. I have a new...
  13. Console Gauge Diagram

    Electrical & Wiring
    Does anyone have an exploded diagram of the console gauge cluster for a 69 camaro? I am putting in a console, but the gauges came with no instructions on how to put them together. I have a diagram for the console but not the gauge cluster. Thanks:confused:
