I've already connected an Autogage voltmeter to my 67. Is the IGN2 post on the back of the ignition key a suitable connection for the application? The directions for the gauge show the gauge connected to ACC on the key, but I'd prefer to avoid moving it if I don't have to. Thanks.

I usually just run the positive for the Tach to accessory of the Fuse Box, 1 to ground and the other to the coil or HEI tach.

I-91 is close by and I'm itchin' to get this car together before the snow flies.

IMHO, both should be connected to an IGN source. I'm not sure if IGN2 on the switch is suitable or not. The reason IGN is a better choice is that it remains hot during crank. Also, you don't need to have your guages powered up if you want to listen to the radio in the ACC position.

Dave, what you said makes sense to me.
I've just realized that my thread title does not match the question I've posed.:D ( Tach/Voltmeter) I meant to talk just about the voltmeter, but I guess the same principle applies to both items.
