All mine are mechanical guages. The water temp idiot light sensor is in the side of the head. I put the mechanical guage sensor in the intake behind the alt bracket so that the engine looked stock.Hi all,
I have a 69 coupe with console and gauges. While I like the look of original gauges, I want to swap out for the 2 1/16" round auto meter gauges. I have a pretty good amount of money in my motor, and would like more accurate info as to water temp and oil press.
I plan to replace the four original gauges with electrical gauges fuel, oil press, water temp, and VOLTMETER instead of amps. With the electrical console gauges, is it possible to still wire things so I have the oil and temp idiot lights working too?
I bought the aftermarket plastic piece that accepts gauges that angle toward the driver. Anyone who is using this, feel free to comment on the setup
Thanks in advance.
The oil pressure idiot light wire is disconnected. I put the oil presure cap tube in fitting in place of the electrical sensor.
