Has anyone tried switching the terminales on the gauge cluster plug to from a non gauge wiring harness to work on gauges. I know it's not the best way to do it but I'm lookimg for a temporary fix

I have used a few guage clusters in non-guage wired cars...

The oil guage is mechanical, so no problems...

The fuel gugae uses the same connector...

You can run the wires for the amp and temp guages (need correct sender), but most of the time I just ran an aftermarket setup in addition...

Oh yeah, all of this were on 1966 Chevelles... but I imagine others would be similar...

On some cars the front lighting harness provides power to the voltmeter. If you wish to be correct then get the right harness. If you just want it to work then you can run wires anyway you like. Just use the correct guage and overload protection.
