If you have another sending unit or an old one just unplug it from from the rear body harness in the trunk and use a jumper wire from the plug and ground the other side of the unit.  Should work if the gauge is working.  Sounds like you might have a ground problem though.

Make sure the wire off the sending unit is grounded.  If you have a spare sending unit plug it into the rear harness & ground it and see if you can make the gauge work by moving the float.  If it doesnt then its the gauge.

80  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Identifying Original Console Gauges on: February 08, 2014, 06:37:35 PM
I took another look at my console gauges today, and they definitely have a brushed finish (when the light hits the face).  I suppose the angle of the photo and lighting when I took the earlier photo made it look 'flat or unbrushed'. 

I need to clean my gauges up and get it all back together for going in the car and I have a couple of questions:
1)  My clear plastic lens over the gauges are 'scratched' and dull;  Any recommendations for polishing or replacing them?
2)  I also need replacement lamps for the gauges;  Recommendations for a source for these lampbulbs would be appreciated. 
     (I have the G-E 1445 lamps that I removed when I disassembled the console; they appear good.  I assume
       these are the original lamps?  true? or ??)  Are they available thru local parts store?

Thanks,
Gary

I used a polishing wheel in my drill and polishing compound and it did very well on this.

As is Cherry Bomb.  More than likely owned by the same parent company.

Thank you Mike!  Yes that is my plan.

I always use a caulk gun then use a piece of cardborard to do the spread look.  It takes a little practice but once you get it down it should look pretty good.  Practice on a old piece before moving to the real thing.   Wink

My guess is its private labeled.

Thanks Mike!

Does anyone have or can get the dimensions of the upper hook on the seatback for the metal back on 67 seats?  I need dimensions of the bracket and of its location.  Thanks, Darrell

Stole this from another members post.   Grin

I believe 400 series stainless is magnetic and 300 series is not, unless certain machining is perforned on it such as threads and such.

Correct.

400 series has little to no nickel in it which makes it magnetic and is also cheaper in price to produce.  300 series has more nickel and is in turn non magnetic and cost is increased due to the nickel content.  I would say the exhaust is 400 series stainless.  400 will rust; or oxidize, if not cared for over time.
