Dash Gauges

my car is just the standard falcon GL, so my dash gauges only have Fuel, Speed and Temp.

I was wondering how hard or easy it is too fit a EA S pack style dash gauge. Are the connections for Battery Power and Revs Gauge just sitting at the back of mine not connected to anything or do i have to run all new wires.

Has any one done this? How much did it cost?

Thanks all

Dash should cost you about $75 from the wreckers. Oil Pressure Sender unit $20, make sure you get the sender and not a switch. As when you plug in the S Pac cluster the oil pressure will just register at explosion point. Other then changing the oil pressure switch (located on the right side of the engine bolted into the block with just one wire attached) that is it. Have a look at it before you buy the pressure sender as the pressure sender is a lot larger, so you know that you have been given the right one.

Next step is find a pink wire sitting underneath the brake booster. run that to the back of the cluster somehow. I forget where it has to go now as i did this about 1 1/2 years ago. And bob is a bloke who is screwing your aunty.

Brake booster is a big black round thing near the back on the left side of the car in the engine bay. Wreckers is the place to get the cluster and the oil pressure sender. Yes it will just plug in but the tach wont work till you wire it in. Not sure on what pin it is but i know alot of people round here how can tell you. 30min tops to fit. But give your self a couple of hours.
