Well, I'm glad ya'll have come up with something a lot better than I could have!
I did find that the CVR is in the fuel gauge on a CJ.
My Fuel gauge works just fine.
My temp gauge pegs out, if I ground the sender wire. It has worked a few times using different sending units, I bet I have bought 20 trying to get it to work consistantly
I have a Mechanical installed Mid-block, where a thermal vacuum switch once was. I have just sorta gotten used to it running Normal at about 9 O'clock (160 Degrees) using a 195 Degree stat. Just using it as a guide, since mid-block temp is about 35 degrees cooler than the top of the head. I really stay on top of mine, and I have not had a overheat yet. (knock on wood!)
I really want my stuff to work correctly too! These links will help me greatly, especially the testing of the sending unit, with real resistance values to go by.
I have had a major Transmission (total rebuild, I put everything new in it!) then not many miles later my transfer case locked up and busted the case, near rollover at 55 MPH (still investigating cause of no oil getting into tail-housing).........Got another and sorta went thru it a little, it seemed to be in really good shape, .........I'm on the road again with less than 200 miles, VERY GUN-SHY!
The cool thing about testing my Speedo-gauges is, I made a Boo-Boo installing my extra 2 gauges on the dash, I hole-sawed out above the Oil and Voltmeter......I found I was all into the Defrost Ducting. So I sawed out the dash, placed all of the gauges on a Removable Plate, which let me place the 2 extra gauges in the radio space, and then I moved the radio below the speedo, in a Homemade Slide housing to accommodate the Newer Style Slide in radiosAll I have to do now is FLOP my plate forward (4 stainle********) An I can EZ access the speedometers back and all bulbs, without removing it or the gauges...........(See Pic at the top of this post)
Thank you for the links you found kd7buj, I did have to copy and paste them on a new tab (now in favorites)----This site has been revamped recently and some things are not completed yet, "Linking" started failing about a week ago, but should be capable real soon as they fix the glitches.....It's been a difficult transition for me, I'm already Cyber-Stupid, and was just getting the hang of the "OLD SITE" when they changed, I cannot find a lot of posts that I have been dealing with much at all.
Any more info, I would appreciate it if you would throw it on here!
I've got the longest running 2 car feller post ever! (so they say), still running, I will attempt a link to it, and see if it works for me.
Keep info coming!
