How to connect the wiring for the gas and temperature gauges

Asked by Nov 28, 2014 at 08:20 PM about the 1964 Ford Galaxie

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The gauges did work before being transported. We want to know how to get to the area
where the wiring is accessible.

Since both gauges are out I'd suspect a fuse. Look for one marked "gauges" on the fuse block. If the fuses are all ok the instrument cluster will need to be removed. On a '64 Model everything is hardwired so no printed circuit to worry about. One last thing, check that the cluster is properly grounded. It should ground to the chassis. In other words just by having the cluster screwed into place should ground it. Look for a loose screw or on the floor for a screw or something metal that may have been jarred loose during shipment.
