I would try the your local hi end car stereo store they should stock
extremely large gauge wire and gold plated connection terminals. They
should stock all the parts you should need to build your own cables. Jeff

Subject: Re: fuel guage

Well bud, I hate to say it but get used to your gas guage working that
way. I have had an 83 FS 4x4 bronco and an 85 F250 4x4 with dual tanks
and they all have had the same problem of reading full forever and then
drasticly sinking to E. I have found no way of fixing this problem
without really looking into it. I am guessing the floats in the tanks are
not operating properly.
