    Apparently, not everyone knows this, as I found more than 3 threads asking. If you notice, I also answered my own question.

    Thanks for the info.

    GM might have made sending units with two other ratings; 0-30 and 40-249 ohms. Not too sure what they came in but the Dakota Digital cluster I just bought for my '56 has these settings for GM. Doubt if they would go to the effort to create the programs for these settings if they didn't exist...

    Greg,

    Post a photo when you're done with the mod. Thinking about doing this with mine.

    Thanks. Found it right after I closed out the last message. They sure look sharp with the new gauges!
