I got the gauges installed last night and all was fine until i turned the dash lights on. When I pull the head light switch the right turn signal light comes on faintly. the left side blinker works, but the right side stays lighted and blinks about every 20 seconds.when I turn the light switch off all works perfect, got to figure this out before i can fiinish.
the dash in mine was hacked too. there was about a 1/8" all the way around. I made 2 indentical plates with 3 holes put one on outside of dash and 1 on back then put the gauges in and sandwiched the dash inbetween them with the gauge brackets. I will look into making some of the plates for everyone
drove my truck for the first time and everything works good. The gauge I was hoping that worked was the air/fuel. It works ok, I got the idle set at optimal and can see it lean out were I have a flat spot so I can fix that hopefully. all in all, better gauges then I had and not better then some. I got what I wanted, and what I think a stock dash should have looked like. As long as I dont get bombarded I will start making and shipping some peices if anyone wants one, no special orders i dont have a shell to go by anymore. just send me a PM, thanks everyone.
How come you didn't clock the face like nascar for normal operating temps and all needles are straight up in normal operating conditions. gives it the racer's edge. looks great and just talkin smack. great job.
