    I need to know the ohm on the 86 blazer full size for the fuel gauge. I want to replace it with an autometer gauge

    Same as all GM gauges. 10 - 90 ohms. Sometimes called 0 - 90.

    Yep, 90 ohms should read full on the gauge while 0-10 ohms will read empty. [​IMG]

    I have an extra circuit panel. Let me know if you are interested. It is out of a 85.
