CHECK THE SENDING UNIT FROM THE FUEL TANK. GET A "D" CELL BATTERY AND CONNECT THE WIRES FROM THE SENDING UNIT DOWN BY THE FUEL TANK. ONE WIRE TO THE POSITIVE END AND THE OTHER TO THE NEGATIVE END OF THE BATTERY. HAVE SOMEONE IN THE CAB VERIFY THAT THE FUEL GAGE MOVES. IF IT DOES THEN YOUR SENDING UNIT IN THE FUEL TANK NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM AND AN EASY FIX.

Temperature guage goes to full hot when running . Replaced sender in left head [single pole ] When you turn key on needle moves toward cold . When engine runs as soon as it starts to heat up guage goes...


Than probably the reading of the temperature is correct or the sensor is too sensitive. So, first things that comes up to mind is if it is the correct sensor you use, or is it damaged.
If correct sensor and not too sensitive, it means the reading is correct. Which leads us to look for the problem causing this drastic raise of temperature..

Need a good website to go to, to buy parts for a 1972 Chevrolet Pickup w/ a 454 in it. Besides LMC Magazine.


autopartswarehouse.com and autozone.com are some of the better/cheapest sites. Both sites have excellent OEM replacements. LMC has a great selection but slighlty overpriced but if you can't find what your looking for, LMC should have it. Good Luck.22

Need wiring schematic showing fuel tank to gauge in 1972 chev trk


There should be a wire that connects to the gas tank sending unit and maybe another wire connected to a spade terminal that could be screwed down to the in-tank sending unit. The brown wire from your gas tank sending unit goes to the back of the dash guage. All the gas tank sending unit does is give a "ground" signal to the dash guage. Whatever you do, do not connect the brown wire to a positive 12 volt wire as sending 12 volts through the gas tank sender will explode the gas tank! Take a look at this website and it will all clear up for you.

You did not say if your dash guage is wires with a plug-in or single wires connecting it. If what i've given you here is not enough to fix the whole problem then respond back with how does the wires connect to the back of the guage. Good Luck!
