  1. Thanks Frosty gonna have to try this looks easy enough.. they were using an after market type but sure it will work with my orginal gage and sending unit from the trunk
  2. Thanks Frosty was really surprised and happy how they and my dash came out now on to figure out how to get my gas gage to work. Have a rebuilt one in and rebuilt gage itself and still not working.Think it more of thing that the where I took it is not sure how to work fix it.They say the gage will work and the sending unit will work but when plugged it it won't.
  3. yes I did how much more or less of a gap should it be?
  4. yes Frosty it went from empty to a little over 1/4 full. not really sure where the short would be at if the gage works and the sending unit works when bench testing it. Would be nice to have is all.When I had the dash off and repainted and stuff I got my heater to work lol..Won't be long and we can fire them up and break the cabin fever.Had the carb all dialed in and timed Runs a little rough when cold but it's been around 25 here but settles down as it warms up
  5. Hey Frosty hope your staying healthy your right only get so many mpg's was just thinking of getting it to stay running smoothly. Got the engine running pretty good and the interior is now complete except for the carpet .Only problem now is my gas gage. Had two rebuilt one I bought and the orginal one but they said there is something wrong with it had it checked again the guy that rebuilt bench tested and said it was good.The gage itself tested good and they said it must be short somewhere but nobody there knew how to chase it down.Even bought a new lead wire so the hunt goes on to find a wire
  6. now that I have updated my distributor to HEI and rebuilt carb and time to change my spark plugs. Should I stay with the standard plug that it use to run on or is there a better plug I could use for better running and gas mileage.
  7. will let him know thanks.. not sure if you know but his has a long stem like for his horn and switching to a GS and he was going to solder the horn wires because they are longer then most I think he can be able to plug them into the back of the new one..
  8. Hey guys hope everyone is staying healthy..Not for me this time but for my brother who has a 68 skylark.He is trying to disconnect his wiring on his steering column to replace his steering wheel .He says it should have to go though the bottom of the column but doesn't know if it plugs into the wires going to fuse box or if he can disconnect it elsewhere..Any help would be great Thanks Terry
  9. looking at the wire and looks like they didn't plug it in for some reason so plugged it in went from full to empty to 1/4 tank can that wire be grounded or is it a seperate wire for the ground
  10. Did all that checked the ohm's and hooked a fuel gage up it and works fine when bench testing but once he dropped it into the tank he sais no power to the unit
  11. Do have the orginal sending unit that was rebuilt.Do have power going all the to wires at the unit but when pluged in doesn't work.Did take it back to the gage guy he benched tested and said it was working but watched and he moved it by hand thinking he he was forcing the float to go from empty to full and when inside the weight of the gas isn't letting it work right.
  12. Hi they did and has power to the gage when key is on but when plug into the sending unit stays at fuel he thinks maybe the float is bad and won't move
  13. Been fighting with the sending unit the garage says it is bad the guy that rebuilt tested it and was good garage says has power fuel gage works but he said when he plugs into the sending unit won't work not sure what is going om
  14. yes have the assembly manual will have to check.. here are some pic's of the new dash
  15. Thanks Frosty would that also go for the fuel gage? new board and rebuilt fuel gage and still not working there is a brown/tanish wire that we didn't hook up and wondering if that could be it.Pic coming looks like a new interior.Got everything else working even have the heater working now,,,,
