Tech- - ELECTRICAL / fuel gauge

The grounds are good too, this was very important for me because the light switch almost set the car on fire before the wiring harness swap.

and my wiring harness is new and the wiring to the back is checked. It is also very typical that the gauge is not in a normal faulty state (works/doesn't work) but it works good only precisely a quarter of normal.

I hope someone can help me with this, I was thinking maybe using a higher voltage chip as both gauges are at approx quarter of normal reading, the only problem is that the chip needs at least 3 volts more than it outputs.

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / fuel gauge

Hi guys,



I have been wondering why my fuel and temp gauge gave half the reading (a full tank = half reading and temp gauge read beginning of first white line) so I replaced the voltage regulator with a 7805 chip like on Allpar. That chip was a DUD though, so it gave about 10.5 volts cold and probably 14 v @ engine rev. The gauges went full to the right so that was not very handy.



Now I recently made a new chip with a new 7805 and tested it thoroughly on a test bank and this one worked fine.

I let it work a few hours on my table and it worked perfect so I installed it. Now the readings are quarter so the fuel gauge now reads at the first line and the temp gauge between left outmost part and the first line.



I examined the values and the fuel gauge reads about 12 Ohms (full) and the output voltage of the 7805 in car is 5v spot on.



So what can I do best?



Extensive pictures will follow but I'm currently on the iPhone so that will come later.

So the Bouchillon one is good for my application, is it better than the rockauto one? I ask this because Rockauto is easier to order from here overseas.
I have the chassis repair manual of 1971 and a Haynes for 1971 and both say that Satellites from 1971 with AC are vacuum operated and non AC cars are cable operated. That's why I need the vac operated one :)

I got some advice about new solenoids being sold here in the Netherlands that look the part. I'll try both options though; I found some liquid stuff that only dissolves rust and does not contain acids and is solvable in water (HG rust remover), sounds the same as the Ultra One description.

Allright, since I already have the mono leafs I will try them out and if they really suck I know what to get 8) thanks!

@ 1965Windsor361: It has a 383 with a too rich Holley that no one seems to get up and running normally (has been refurbished twice and four people tried to set it up normally).
@ firedome: are those mono leafs original from the seventies then? My leafs are brand new so I hope they will last as long as that ;) I was concerned a bit about the safety, probably a bit overconcerned.

Here in The Netherlands sealed beams are illegal so I have H4, I would really like to stress the necessity of putting in a relay system in a Mopar, as also found on Daniels website right here: http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech/relays/relays.html

I do not have a vacuum reader but what I did check was if the valve would close w/o any vacuum. So I removed the vacuum line and shut off both ends and drove with hot feet... If anything, the valve is the wrong one (open at zero) or it's definitely broken. I'd go with the last one.
