Ive just discovered the mgs@autox, I wish I'd known about it when I
started the restoration of my 1979 MGB.

        I have just got everything back together and it runs great. the only
problem is that the fuel and temperature gages are both totally idle,
even when I know there is fuel in the tank, and I can feel the engine is
hot after running!  I have replaced the temp sender unit and both
instruments used to work before I took the engine out. I did not mess
about under the dash (and looking up behind the dash I dont think it
would be a good idea!)  In what may be a connected problem I have blown
about half a dozen 25amp fuses over the last two weeks (in the second
breaker from the bottom - the one that supports the ignition related
components like wipers and rev counter.)

I read in the book that both these instruments make use of a voltage
stabilizer. Could this be a problem and how should I test it? Or does
anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks for your help anyone who has any ideas!
