will yall post up some pics of how you ran everything, where the gauges are mounted , ect. o and where they hook to the motor.

i know the water can just get put in a heater core hose with a T.
but the oil psi gauge idk were to hook it up. dose it screw in right above the oil filter? and the volt gauge just straight to the battery or to the alt.???

I wish I had pics of mine, I installed an equus gauge from o'reilly's, only $20 for the electric temp, and it came with a probe that fit, just stick it in the port for the stock temp gauge, (rear of block), and you're good to go.

Here is my set up. i didnt wanna do a cluster swap so i just re-used the idiot light mounting locations

water temp-back driver side by the manifold
oil PSI- right above the oil filter
battery-directly off the battery.

they are tapped into the dash lights so they dim and turn on/off just like normal dash lights

Btw to mount the gauges i mounted them on a piece of strap and counter sunk the bolts so it was flush. and then mounted the whole assembly onto the dash

be easy when drilling into the dash and it wont crack, and there is a piece of wood in the dash to screw into so you dont have to go all the way thru it.

Hope this helps.
