    Ok, my white face guages should be here tomorow, my question is, when u take off the needle to change the guages, what does the ignition have to be on? ive heard some say accesory, some say off, and some say on. Which is it? the reason ive heard for it being accesory or on is so the needles wont roll back or something, i didnt really understand what they meant by that. Anyone know?

    With your ignition on and the motor cool everything exept maybe the gas guage should be at a certain point. I think the overall concern is to have a baseline for your guages so the needles get put back on right. You new sticker could be off a little so you might be aligning it to the sticker instead of you old marks.
