    might be, the insturment panel,
    thats what caused mine to keep blowing,
    look for a break in it, and solder it up

    Hey Ben, you might try checking to see if some previous owner spliced into the circuit for the gages to add a CB, stereo or something. That particular circuit powers several things along with the gages, such as Carb fuel solenoid switch. I'm not sure what all else, my schematics just go to '85.
