Re: Anyone have an extra gas gauge?

i have two cj guage clusters but i'm not sure if the guages work or not. they were from jeeps that i have parted out. i would send you both of them for $20 and if they didn't work you could send them back. you can also get a new one for around $35 if you wanted to go that route.

Re: Anyone have an extra gas gauge?

If you apply the resistance tests in my gauge article you can pretty much tell if the used fuel gauge is going to work or not.
Both the fuel gauge and the temp gauge uses the same stepped down 5v. from the regulator in the fuel gauge so if the regulator is cooked, both gauges usually cease to function. That is why the catalogs suggest you replace the set instead of the individual gauges.
Note that both the Stewart Warner and the imported VDO brands of replacment gauges are 12 volt meters in BOTH new gauges.
In the case of my nonfunctioning OEM fuel gauge there was no reading on one of the poles where there should have been an ohm resistance reading as documented.
Make sure you use the most current gauge article version ...
