    I am starting with the gas guage and the temp. I need a positive, a negative and what else? They are 3 pole guages. Where does the 3rd wire come from? If you can also list whats needed for other guages too. I actually just need the oil pressure guage too. There all 3 pole i believe. If anyone can tell me what goes where or a wiring diagram, that would be awesome. Thanks.

    Should be Positive to activate the gauge, Ground for grounding and a Signal wire from whatever your tryin to get signal from.

    so, its a positive into the guage, a negative into the guage and a wire from the piece sending the signal goes into the guage?

    Thats the way all my gauges work, but you need to know which wire goes to which part, sorry cant help ya there. It is pretty important to know this b4 attempting to start powering up things.
