Gauge Problems
« on: December 19, 2017, 05:46:20 PM »
I have contacted you before regarding my 1970 MGB, and you have been very helpful. My problem this time are the fuel and temperature gauges. They float, the fuel gauge from empty to the true reading and the temp from normal to cold and back. The car is running great and no problem with over heating. I would appreciate your thoughts.

The first step I would advise would be to check all the connections to the gauges, particularly the ground, which may be common to both.

They do loosen up and it's a fairly common problem. It's tight getting to the backs of the gauges, but it might remedy your issue.

Hope that helps.

Editor's Note:  The problem was solved by tightening a loose voltage stabilizer.
