Re: What did you do with your truck today, Part 3

I removed my stock non-functioning gas gauge. It used to work, now it stopped. Not sure how to test it, but for $57 (Classic Parts) I'll just buy a new 12-volt unit.

Re: What did you do with your truck today, Part 3

Aside for going for a cruise, I put a new lokar shifter in the truck, along with the boot and chrome ring.

Re: What did you do with your truck today, Part 3

if you have a 6 volt gage on a 12 volt system you need that in line resistor. its a voltage drop.

stovebolts.com has a great tech article on converting from 6 to 12 volts. Can't link it on my phone.
