View Full Version : Speedo/Tach/Gauges Gauges Again

Replaced the dash insert & the chrome surround for the glass over the temp & gas gauges and the speedo/odom unit on a '63 Champ. Used the same guages/speedo with newer chrome surrounds and reinserted in the newer dash insert. Now after startup the guages go up in several short jumps until maxed out. Gas-guage stays at max with temp-guage returning to zero after key is turned off. The guages had worked fine until my efforts at this cosmetic upgrade. Help will be appreciated, please.

In partial correction of the above. Have most probably found the problem as a ground and have found the general problem area, the block with wires just under the gauge cluster. Move the block and all is well. Still need to nail down which wire(s).
