Oil preasure gauge
« on: May 24, 2016, 08:36:06 PM »
I have bought a 1967 Camaro RS/SS 350 and imported it to Ausrtia. Unfortunately there are very few similar cars running here and the workshops dont have a glue....
So I hope someone can help me in this forum with my questions:

1) My car has the center console where I can read the engine oil preasure.
In addition to that I have an oil warning indicator in the speedometer (down left). I think there should be the low fuel warning light instead - am I right? My speedo has oil warning and brake.....which I guess is wrong for that SS 350 model.

2) When I only switch on the ignition (engine not starting) should the warning lights illuminate for control that they are good? In my car nothing happens - is that right?

Thanks, Guenther

If you have factory gauges, the idiot light on the dash is not used. It is there, but not wired.

Yes I do have the factory gauges.  Unfortunately the guys who did the restoration of the car did not make it right....
I will install the fuel/brake lens and the low fuel module in the center console. I found the yellow wire unconnected under the center gauges and in addition I need to install the bulb in the speedo. Should work then.
Thanks, Guenther

although I am partial to red, I think the car is a stunner. Auto or 4 spd?

Nice ride Guenther. Yes you can replace the OIL / BRAKE decal on the speedometer with FUEL/ BRAKE version available at most of the Camaro on-line parts places. I would check the console gauges to see if the Low Fuel Warning Module is even installed. The yellow lead runs up to the FUEL light. In 1967 the LFWM sent power to the yellow lead to light the bulb. If you find yours is still wired as an OIL warning light. The conversion is easy to hook up a 1967 LFWM.

Thanks for the help! I have ordered the low fuel warning module and the decal and I am finished with the installation. All works fine and it is back to original  :)
