I am finally getting around to installing my old factory gauges. I decided to re-wiring my entire car (Factory Fit wiring from American Autowire) and just received everything I bought. After looking through all the wiring, I have the following questions. Question #1:
Was the tachometer only powered by the wiring harness to the printed circuit board or will I need to run other wiring for the power, ground, and signal?Question #2:
Is my temperature sender supposed to be sticking up this much or is it not seated all the way? I encountered some resistance when tightening it and didnít want to force anything but donít know if it is correctly installed. Question #3:
Is there suppose to be a ground wire under the console to the floor/trans tunnel? Under my console there is a piece of masking tape with writing on it stating to ďrun ground strap to bracketĒ. Donít know if that is a factory note written or by one of the two previous owners. If there is suppose to be one, what bracket does it connect to (seat belt, console bracket, ect)? Question #4:
Is the temperature sender wire built into another one of the harnesses I purchased or do I need to run a separate wire from the sender to the gauge?
