Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1947 plymouth with the original gauge cluster. I have a fuel cell with a 12 volt  fuel sending unit in the tank. Is there any way to get the fuel gauge to work?

Suggest check out Nuts and Volts magazine and posting this question to them. They have a lot of good electrical advice there. I don't know how you would go about doing this except perhaps with some kind of stepdown to the voltage.
