On a car that came with gauges, there should be a warning light in the dash cluster that says "FUEL". This was for the low fuel warning system.
I had a discussion about this recently with William and learned a couple of interesting things.
I was told the oil line location through the firewall is a biggy. Usually never put in the right spot with the correct rubber grommet when gauges are added.
I'd also be looking close at the wiring harness. Factory gauge cars, like mine, and as I've been told by a couple of smart people here, should have cloth covering on both coil wires. An odd clue I had not heard until recently. Reproduction wire harnesses don't come with it.....I tried. I'd be crawling under the dash as well and checking the console and dash harness connections for obvious monkey business.
Of course as everyone knows it should have a clock as well, so many conversions done without.
While original paperwork is neat, I've never banked all that much on it when it comes to the 69's. Stick to the Dec 68 and later Norwood build dates with X codes and you'll know what you're getting without the paperwork.
Yes, that one.I do have ordered the 68 black air cleaner decal, does it goes to the same location as the white one, between forward and driver's side ? I looked on pictures from 68 engine, but the snorkel is opposite to ours 69 ....
And alt sticker goes nowhere.
So lets see the rest of this Beauty....
