    Aftermarket Wiring Kits, who has done it?

    I have already put all Autometer guages in my wagon. I am having issues with the alternator charging in my car.

    Did you have any trouble hooking into the column? All the kits I see have a GM column plug on them. I want to keep my factory column. Thanks, Erik

    Aftermarket Auto Meter Fuel Guage

    http://www.jegs.com/i/Auto+Meter/105/3262/10002/-1 Here is the sender I used. The sender went on the top of the tank.

    Aftermarket Auto Meter Fuel Guage

    I installed a Autometer fuel gauge and an Autometer universal sender in my stock goon tank. The sender fit in the stock and I used the stock lock ring. Ran one wire to the gauge and it works great. Easy as can be.

    looks great Wayno! I always wanted to make skirts for my 521 when I had one. Love the Ute look!
  11. Yeah it was working fine. I am sure because I was scared shitless after I did it so I watched it like a hawk.
  12. The light has never worked since I tried to install it. As for the alt I took it out Saturday and Phil tested it and it was working fine. I haven't had a charge light in the car for a year before this weekend. Edit I am confused to how it worked before because all I had hooked up was the yellow to a relay with no light. I also forgot to say that the new alt is a new style off a sentra with a wire adapter to the old T connector. I am a little Leary of the new style, wondering of it is needs something more than the old style?
  13. Matt-- I have the yellow hooked into the back of the alt with the big white red stripe from the starter and going to the fuse block. (positive terminal on the alt). I have the white with a black stripe going to a light under the dash and the other side of the light is to a keyed hot. I think I have it set up the same as your diagram but I will try taking the yellow and running it into the cab and finding a keyed 12 volt in there. What do you guys think?
  14. I have a 72 goon with a l20b and a 80 210 internally regulated alternator. I did a mild wire tuck three months ago and I put on a aluminum turnbuckle on my alternator instead of the stock bracket. I ran the car for a couple months after the wire tuck with no problems, I had the belt too tight with the new turnbuckle and ruined the bearings in the alternator. After I got a replacement alt the charging system has not been working right. When I first put on the new alt which was wired the same as the old, I was making to many volts like 17. Then I started to make barley 12 on my volt gauge. I talked to some people and discover that I needed the charge light so I wired one up but it doesn't work right either. It seems like the alt isn't putting any volts out through the T connector int the rear. I had it tested and all was well with it, so I know that I am missing something. Please help. Thanks, Erik
