Fuel Gauge Resistor

Does any one know what the value of the resistor on the back of the fuel gauge is supposed to be. On this forum (somewhere) someone replaced their's with a 87 ohm resistor. Just wondering if 87 ohms is right and what the wattage should be.

If I can't get the resistor, I'll have to buy a new gauge.

Thanks

Re: Fuel Gauge Resistor

can't answer your Q... but I'd bet if you looked on the parts board you could find a guage or whole cluster for not much money.

Re: Fuel Gauge Resistor

Here you go and by the way I measured the fuel gauges in two of my clusters and they were pretty close.

Re: Fuel Gauge Resistor

Wow-Thanks for the detail! That will help a lot.

I bought another gauge to try off ebay but there's no guarantee that that one will work either!
