I would like to swap out the idiot lights for SS gauges in my 65. I plan on buying a new engine harness as mine is shot so I will buy one for guauges. My dash harness is perfect and I don't really want to shell out the money for another one. Is there a way to convert this over for the gauges or am I SOL? Thanks,

If you have the wiring diagrams, it probably can be done by finding the idiot light wires and comparing them to the gauge wires, then adding or subtracting wires as necessary. It sounds like a long, involved process that may yield poor results. I would try to find a swap meet harness, or maybe one on ebay before I modified the idiot light one. With a repro harness, it's plug and play; no splices, all the correct wire sizes and lengths and all of the correct color codes.
