    Along with my FI454 I'm gonna do an updated Gage Cluster.
    Like This one Greg72 did:

    I hope you don't mind me stealing your pic Greg? /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Anyway I am in the process of installing the gages like Greg did and I started wondering if anyone has ever replaced the Speedo and or Fuel gage.
    If so part #s? Pics? Info?
    The stock ones I have will work they are just faded and I'm thinking(ouch) of replacing them..... /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I plan to do the same thing:

    Big autometer speedo and tachometer in place of the fuel and speedo.

    Then add a smaller fuel gauage.

    Yep, that's my plan.

    I wonder what I can find that will fit in the center hole?

    Auto meter has 3-3/4" gauges that fit perfect in that hole.

    I'm going to keep the factory one for now. It still works and I like the tach in the center. The biggest fuel gage AutoMeter has is still under 3", 2 5/8 or whatever it was..

    Burt, I think you have seen the gauge setup I will be using in my K20, but if not, here it is. Course, if the K20 never comes back from the body shop, this will make a fine paper weight /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I would hit your local Radio Shack. They should have something you can use for that under the dash connection.
