I have a 1959 4E1 which has a gas gauge and a temperature gauge and neither seem to work at this moment, so my question is: Can anyone tell me which is the power sided of each of the gauges. I have enlarged all the schematics and on the gas gauge it appears that it may be the bottom but I can find no temperature gauge call out on the schematics and the shop book just says hook to the sender side(which is of course the ground)!

If someone could enlighten me on which is the power or sender side on temperature and gas gauges I can go forward with checking them out and getting them working.

I have my alternator light and oil pressure light working fine it is just the other 2 left to get operational.

Thanks

Keith

Keith: the bottom contact on both gages is the one to be connected to the ignition.
