My fuel gauge and my oil pressure gauge are not working on my '81 CJ5. I think I read somewhere that these two gauges share a common ground. Does anyone know where this ground is? Just want to check all the easy stuff before I buy a new fuel and oil pres. sending unit.

on my 87, theres a 6" braided ground strap that goes from the top of the head (#5cyl area) to the firewall.
THe neg term on battery goes to the block (#1 cyl area) just below the alt or (AC if i had it).
I had simalar probs and by polishing them up with a wire brush it solved the prob

I was just thinking of removeing mine and patching the holes with a some sheet metal and a rivet or two. then draw on new faces and hands set just at the optium setting so I never have to worry about em again. hehehe Tug :wink:

If they stopped working at the same time, definately check the grounds. Also, If they are three wire gauges, check that they are recieving a constant hot as well as the ground.
