Re: Amp gauge question

Mine works (at least it did once when my regulator failed and fried my battery), but I want to convert it to a volts gauge.

Re: Oh God, no!

Yeah, on second thought, it's actually pretty nice once (and if) you can get past the cartoon-like wheels. A testament to the power of first impressions.

Re: CopyCatVert

Thanks for the warning as to the parts. Since it's obviously not going to be a simple swap, I guess I'll just tuck it away for a while until after my seat project is done.

Amp gauge question

Do I understand this correctly: the amp gauge on my 68 XR7 is really just a voltmeter measuring the voltage drop across a shunt wire? In other words, will the car still run if the gauge is disconnected?

I've had mine apart several times to fix the same type of problem. In my case, the needle would stick right around 2300 rpm. Turned out to be just some dust that was causing it. Be warned, though, these things are extremely fragile and you might only make things worse by taking it apart. Besides, wh...

Re: CopyCatVert

I'm sure the rear seat bottom will require a major rework. My car doesn't utilize inner rocker panels so the front seats should have plenty of room. Because my car is registered as a collector vehicle, she has to go into mothballs for the month of January (crazy Wisconsin law). That should give me p...

Re: CopyCatVert

One big disadvantage of a convertible is that your ratty interior is exposed for all the world to see. I really didn't think mine was that bad until I saw it with the top down. For the past month or so I've been weighing my options. Ideally, restoring my existing seats in repop leather from WCCC or ...
