You have one technical problem. The needles are Red when powered on. -Ariel
Argh! Solution is replace all gauges!

Can you provide some installation guides or diagrams or even lists of compatible senders? This was a key benefit of the now-defunct egauges website - it was by far the best place to figure out what combinations of parts were necessary to build your set-up.

Well I don't have any guides in specifics. I can make suggestions on senders in terms of compatible senders. Most Single station VDO senders are compatible. This information is always super useful for everyone involved, https://www.lspeedo.com/2019/02/06/identifying-senders/ that lets us give you an exact match, if we can't match that specific number we call Continental directly for clarification on that specific part.

As far as the website is concerned. I'm getting to it. I have some product suggestions added to some products. There is a massive layout redesign occuring at the same time that I'm working on. Refining the store. Egauge had the same platform our current site is running, it just needs to be better optimized. -Ariel

Looks like these are J1939 compatible. Any confirmation that they can be wired together to display info directly of the Cummins R2.8 bus?

If the engines are J1939 compatible it should work. Resistance has to measure 60ohms across the data lines. On the SingleViu wiring it's the Pink and white wires. You can also do color changing if you hook up the pink and white wires in series (must use larger harness on tach or speedo with Pink/White wires). I can also demonstrate by making videos on how to set parameters and such. :)

That would be great. I bought all my replacement gauges from you all a few years back. This would be a cleaner more reliable wiring setup with these gauges. I'm not well versed in the J1939 stuff.

As far as J1939, I'll be happy to help you when that comes up. Wanted to give everyone a heads up. We're getting a software update that allows use of the gauges over OBD port. Let you guys know when that comes running in.
