Try Standard Motors part number RU100 (or RU100T) voltage reducer

Thank you. I just purchased the instrument panel voltage regulator and let you know what happens. Where does the voltage reducer go?


The voltage reducer would go inline with the feed wire for the guage, it limits 12 volts down to 6 volts.

ah ok so it goes in series. Makes sense. I'm going to try the instrument panel voltage regulator and keep you posted


Please do! If all else fails there may be a fault in the gauge itself which may be repairable by an auto electric wizard

I did notice that the voltage regulator does take the volts from 12 to 6. So maybe the voltage reducer won't be needed. I should be picking up the regulator tonight.
