    Does anyone know where i can get good replacement fuel and temp gauges for my 69
    Dauntless v6? Everything was working fine until my temp gauge broke. Then i broke the fuel gauge replacing it. I have since ordered 4 sets of replacement gauges from 4 different locations and none work. Some say they are for 1972 and up but i didnt think it would matter. I found an old set of gauges on one of my jeeps and was thrilled. Til the fuel gauge broke taking it out. If someone could just provide me with a good source for pre 72 gauges it would make my day. I have noticed all the temp gauges i received have the C on the left and H on the right. And all the stock ones in my old jeeps are reversed. Maybe in getting the wrong ones? Thanks in advance

    When I replaced the Fuel gauge on my 77, it was a difficult job because teh senders and eh gauges dont always use the same ohms to register. I bought mine from a jeep dealer back them because there was no internet and they couldn't seem to give me the right ones. I ended up having to get a matched set. Sender and Gauge.

    Also remember the gauge cluster needs to be grounded before you turn the ignition on.
