fuel gauge help

Postby cococola » Sat Jul 22, 2017 1:43 pm

I have replaced the black speedometer on my minor with a gold face one as I prefer this however the gold one doesnt have the stabiliser on the back of the speedo clock so I took this off my old one and fixed it onto the back of the clock. I now have a fuel gauge that waves madly up and down as soon as I turn the ignition on.
Can anybody help please.
many thanks
Alan

Pretty sure the level sender is different too on the gold faced speedo cars.

Yes they are, which is why you sometimes see the speedo with a mismatched fuel gauge where you remove the fuel gauge from the speedo assembly and bolt the other one on. One of mine is like that black speedo but gold fuel gauge, but that is the way it was when purchased.

Ahh many thanks for replies I have swapped the old housing so that I have a gold face with black fuel gauge and all works fine now.
