Fuel/temp guage singal question

Post by CJ1024 »

New guy here, but not new to Volvos. I'm wondering if the signals for the fuel and coolant temp gauges on a 240 will work with off-the-shelf fuel and temp gauges. I want to put a tach in place of the fuel/temp gauges, and put 52mm gauges in the panel to the right, thereby keeping the nice large clock, and having a tach that's actually big enough to be practical.

Depends on the ohm range of the gauge and sender.
