    Nice work! I love the fatory stuff for the early years.

    The mind boggling part is how OER got their pieces so horribly wrong...

    I've seen some aftermarket gauge setups that look great. I just prefer the stock look for my personal cars.

    oil guage

    That oil pressure guage is great what is it out of? Or did you get it from that gentleman Daniel. I think I might pull my guage back out of my 72 and do what you did. Please let me know. Thanks. You did an excellent job.

    Daniel makes them out of spare parts. I fired mine last week, sits at 60 at idle. I also plumbed for the gauge AND the light. Nice to have. Gets a little busy under the dizzy, but why not? The wires are already there

    Love that oil gauge! Looks like my clock will need a special 'rebuild' soon.
