Fuel and Temp Gauges
The issue I've been having is that the Fuel and Temperature gauges are not working at all. I have a '79 CJ with '79 sending units on the engine and in the gas tank. The main gauge I think is from an 80's CJ (ebay purchase) and the engine is a '73 304 V8. I pulled a fresh wire from the sending unit to the gauge on the fuel side and there is continuity on the temperature gauge wire to sending unit. All gauges appear to have the proper wires on each gauge terminal compared to the wiring diagram but I still have no reaction from either gauge. Any ideas for what I can check for would be awesome. Thanks for all your help and considerations.
I had a buddy who was having the same problem with his fuel gauge. Is the tank the original? If so, you might want to drop the tank and check the sending unit. His problem was that the float was rotted out, and not floating.. The actual sending unit was working fine, gauge too for that matter, but since the float wasn't floating it was always empty. Just a suggestion to check out.
