    Ginger, hit the link to CRK and read their description under the drawing of the kit - it's pretty easy to do but wiring has to be modified.

    I ended up making my own kit. I had my machinist friend make the mount for the gauges and found some cups to put the gauges in that I cut down a little. I'm going to delete the idiot lights.

    I wouldn't delete the idiot lights, but to each their own.

    A low oil pressure incident {though rare} would be the end of the motor when your first hint was bang clatter clatter clatter.

    I'm also fond of my neutral light.

    Maybe so, but seeing it go off at startup is somewhat comforting.

    Put on a gauge very retro very functional

    or both the factory decided to switch

    to a red light cuz most people never

    look at a gauge.

    as if they know what oil pressure

    does or how to tell if its low.

    that's why they call them idiot lights.

    Sure take it off toss,it serves no purpose.
