Anyone know what color the resistor on the back of a 70 SS Temperature gauge is? I have a yellow one on it now but for some reason I thought the temp gauge used a green one. Also, does anyone know what the ohm's reading would be on one of these when I test it.

The top and bottom terminals are not internally connected. I believe your problem is caused by the bottom post not making contact with ground. I have a temp gauge that has a 91-ohm wire wound resistor so I think the 91-ohm resistor will work. For accuracy you should have it calibrated. However it should be close.
