Hey I'm switching from the idiot lite dash to the stock Gauges with tach dash. The patterrn of the wires in the connector is different. I am half way through the swap and lost. I got fuel guage and tach to work but thats it.
First does anyone have a wiring diagram or know the order of the swap?
Also are the oil and water sending units different for guages?
Also is there a way to convert a 6cyl tach to an 8cyl car.

"First does anyone have a wiring diagram"
I got a copy of the wiring diagram at my local library. Your local library may have a reference section with automotive information. It seems like the one I got is for 81, I'll check when I get home.

Yes there is a difference. You can get the correct senders at your local Chevy dealer or auto parts store.

"Also is there a way to convert a 6cyl tach to an 8cyl car"
There should be a jumper on the back of the tach that will be in the 6 slot. The jumpers are keyed so that the 6 jumper will not fit in the 8 slot. I think the jumper you have can be trimmed to fit in the 8 slot.
