One more thing-the people I bought the speedo from, adjusted the odometer to reflect current mileage covered.

Edited- now that I've read ALL the responses, not just the first one.

Thanks for all of your feedback. Here is my revised list based off your inputs:

437-155 120 MPH Speedo (12/24V) 4" - Vision Black with the V8 speed transducer YBE100530
333-158 6K RPM Tach (12V) 2 1/16" - Vision Black with VDO Sender
301-105 E-F 240-33 Ohms Fuel Level (12V) 2 1/16" - Vision Black with VDO Sender
310-105 250F Water (12V) 2 1/16" - Vision Black with VDO Sender
310-106 300F Oil (12V) 2 1/16" - Vision Black with VDO Sender
350-104 80 PSI Oil (12V) 2 1/16" - Vision Black with VDO Sender
332-103 8-16V Voltmeter (12V) - 2 1/16" - Vision Black with VDO Sender

Does this make more sense? Are my Temp/PSI ranges for these gauges correct? Thanks again!

The speedo you chose is the wrong size. It needs to be 4? not 3-3/8?.

You can actually get away without a speed sensor and piggyback on the 14cux sender. It depends a lot on how Doug is doing the conversion.

Thanks mdubs! Glad We were able to help each other out.
You’re the man. Thanks for the help. Less and less reason to stay on DSource when you compare my identical posts. Over here I got some help with my question and a great deal on a gauge. Over there my post was ignored, probably
because everyone was spending their time on Internet forum drama...

I wish I could transfer my build thread over here...

With the end of EGuages.com where is the next best place to buy a boost gauge? I ordered it from Jegs and it went from in stock to backordered for 2 weeks to backordered for 6 weeks.

Those are the colors that match the STC4637 connector as I understand it (can probably check when I get home). The connector was intended for the brake lights.

See here for details all in one place: http://alre.club/Forum/index.php?topic=72.0 and you can verify the connector pins with the wires.

edit: Look inside the sender for the pin labels and you can verify. #2 at speedo to the + pin on the sender.

That makes 6/8 wire (signal wire) red on the brake connector. I was mainly confused if the + (POS) was 6/8, or if signal.

black = POS, speedo pin 2
green = ground, and/or speedo pin 3
red = signal, speedo pins 6/8

As you can see, I took my chances with the Amazon version of the sensor.

Which boost gauge do you have there? Do we need to see vacuum? And what do I need to get to connect the boost to the engine?
Vacuum gauge will not work on a diesel engine. Get the 30 PSI Vdo vision boost gauge with the npt fitting g kit .

With this T fitting you will have an easy installation
