Gauge replace CAUTION!

Just a CAUTION,

I decided to replace my fuel and temp gauge today, bought a pair from MORRIS 4x4 Center, they are OMIX part # 8126919K

the threads on the old gauges are 10-32, the new gauges although they look identical and you can put a 10-32 up against the thread and it appears to be the same, is actually a 5mm x .80 pitch metric.

they came with 5 nuts to mount them, but didn't have the additional 2 to install the connector strip between the 2 gauges. So if you're doing the swap hit the hardware store for a couple of metric nuts.

Thanks, for the info. Got those same gauges sitting around waiting for my lazy butt to put them in. Saved me from throwin around some cuss words and wrenches. Damn those Chicoms!
