Hello everyone, Does anyone have information on the internal wiring of the bugeye fuel gauge?? My Gauge wasn't working at all, so I thought I'd open it up to find out why.. There are two small 'coils

If the two terminals on the back of the fuel gauge are marked with a "B" for battery, and a "T" for tank, then the two coils should be attached to each other in series. If there are no markings on th

I'm no stranger to working on gauges myself. I used to own a 63 Volvo p1800 which IMHO has one of the most beautiful and complete sets of Smiths gauges in any car. I had gone through each gauge one

First, nothing should be grounded to the fuel gauge case. Second, your gauge is a thermostatic type, which means that as the current passes through the insulated coil, the coil heats up, which cause

It occurred to me that the insulated coil may actually be the resistor, and the other coil may be the heating coil. If so, the metal piece that attaches to the needle would be going through (or lie

I'm not sure as I follow you on this. It looks to me that the two coils are nothing more than induction coils, that generate a magnetic field which varies with the amount of current coming from the

I really appreciate your input, but I really think we might be talking apples and oranges here. The coils in my fuel guage are identical in size and shape, and are positioned symmetrically to create
