Re: Aftermarket gauges for 258

The auto meter mechanical gauges should come with enough brass fittings to plug into any motor. I always liked mechanical gauges and thats what I'm putting in my CJ [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] (oil press, water temp, trans temp, and volts (obviously that one is electric)). I really like the liquid filled pro-comp gauges from Auto Meter. Kinda' spendy, but vibration wont kill them! The only down side to mechanical gauges is, if you dont get the fittings sealed up well on the back of the gauge, then you have that fluid inside the vehicle.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

I don't know if the electric aftermarket gauges will be compatible with your factory sending units, but the new gauges should come with their own senders. Just take your time and wire them up nice and out of the way if you go the electric route.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
