2 Good 2 be true

I was in the middle of posting my Head Gasket D.I.Y. and decided I'd take some time to install my Indiglo Gauges. Piece of cake right. No! The gauges are hot but my stupid temp and fuel gauge are 6 feet under. The temp stays at 0 and the fuel is at full all of the time. By the way I thought it was the gauges touching the needles so I reinstalled them with superglue making sure that they were not touching. Put them back in and still same thing. Now I've been reading a lot of the posts here regarding busted gauges and all I can see is replace cluster. Before I run out and buy another type II cluster, does anyone have any suggestions???

FYI . If the fuel gauge is at 0 upon startup it slowly but definitely surely goes to full..............

1. Double checked the connections, OK
2. Reinstalled the indiglo's, OK
3. Checked all fuses, OK
4. Drank some beer, yes.

You can replace just the bad gauges. I broke the needle off of the fuel gauge and bought a broken cluster and replaced the gauge I needed. I'm saying this because I don't think there's a difference in the temp. and fuel gauges type I and type II so you might not have to search high and low for a type II cluster. You might be able to just buy a type I for $30 on Ebay.

That's good info. I may take you up on that offer however, I need to find out why this happens as to prevent it in the future. I see this happens a lot during these indiglo installs. I didn't beak the needles off. Maybe moved them around a little while installing the glows but thats about it. It's weird how both the temp & fuel are out but the tach and speedometer are fine. Gotta be something that's happening to a lot of people.
