Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't the gas and temp guages in our truck
basically ohm meters?  If so, wouldn't the use of some sort of crimp-on
connector increase the resistance in the circuit and cause the guage to read
wrong?  I know it would, I'm just not sure the increased resistance is
enough to worry about.

The reason for these questions is that I'm considering using a "master" plug
to connect the instrument cluster in my 57 3100.
