Check your voltage stabilizer to see if it has 12 volts coming in on the
Brown wire and 8 volts (I think) coming out on the other wires to feed the
gauges. The car has to run for a couple of minutes to stabilize the voltage
going out. It's located on the passenger wheel well on the firewall side of
the fuse box.

I think I must have a gremlin! (His name is Lucas). I have never seen or
heard of a problem like this, so I'm hoping someone has.
Was cruising down a local hiway in my 72 B at 65 MPH when the engine surged
for about 5 seconds. When the surge was over, I had lost lights, turn
signals, tach, fuel gage, temp gage, and had blown the two largest fuses in
the box. The car kept running and I finished my short trip. I replaced the
fuses and the lights and turn signals work, but still no tach, fuel or temp
Thanks for the help.
