AutoMeter Gauges

Ok I am looking at adding auto meter gauges....right now i am going to put a stock 1.3L back in until i can buy a cherry picker to do my 2.3L conversion. however i want to put a pair of autometer gauges in the two center vent holes....i know this isnt something new but i was wondering which gauges to get..

mechanical or eletric....and what special adapters would be needed to adapt these gauges to the suzuki motor?

thanks

J

Re: AutoMeter Gauges

If you get a mechanical gauge... get the copper or stainless lines...

Also it could be dependant on what gauge you're looking for. I have used both types is harsh environment and they've worked well.

Jason, the 2 1/16" gauges fit right in the vent holes. I'm using electrical gauges. I'll try to dig up some pics of the senders.....

Re: AutoMeter Gauges

I usually use mechanicals, they seem to be a little more accurate . For the water , you can either tap the hole below the thermostat housing out to 1/4" or 3/8" pipe , then use the adapter included with the guage . I found a supplier for the 1/8'x28 to 1/8"x27 adapters to fit the oil senders in , works good . The stupid metric adapters are almost $4 each, but they do fit properly .
