Gauges

My speedo and or cable ceased operating on my 94 ST. I want to switch over to the VDO electronic gauge. I know I need to install a new sender unit . I also want to change the rest of the gauges out to the vision series I believe. I read the FAQ section and the write up at yellowdefender.com for ideas.

What I was wondering was what gauges has everone found the most usefull and what other gauges should I absolutely add since I am going through this excercise. I plan on modifying the center dash panel where the clock and lighter are to accomodate more gauges.

Thanks for the input.

Mark

I have all VDO vision gauges except for the speedo. I wanted one last part that I did not change! I have fuel, egt, water, tach. Simple install, just make sure that you get a good ground and the right senders.

FYI: the water temp sender should be 323 095D That took three tries to get that right. Good luck.

Davd, you helped me on the temp sender, so I thought I'd hit you up on the fuel... what's involved in that install? Do you know the Ohm's required for that sender? The FAQ lists 270-19, but I didn't see a VDO sender with that range. What'd you use?

thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave,

Good to hear from you again. On the fuel you can use the stock sender and signal wire. This is a very easy install because all the wires are already sittin in there. I would run a new ground though. I wish that I still had the part number for the guage but there are 2 models to choose from. One will run right and the other runs from empty to full. I, of course, first got the one that read empty when full and had to swap out. 270-20 sounds correct to me. I hope this helps!

Cool... thanks Dave. I just can't belive the difference in night time visibility with the new water temp gauge. And it doesn't fog up. Now I have to get the rest of the gauges to match.

Dave...what is the advantage of having an exhaust gas temperature gauge?

Anyone install oil pressure gauges, oil temp and or transmission temp gauges?

The EGT is extremely important for Diesels but not necessary for gas trucks. Oil pressure and temp are a good ideas but not really necessary unless you are running a modified engine. The trans temp guage is important for auto's but not necessary for manuals. Good luck!
