Fuel gauge problems

Post by Cokeboy5 » Tue Mar 24th, 2015 8:23

My car was changed over to 12 volts when I bought it, the only thing not working besides the radio now is the fuel gauge. On a 12 volt system will the gauges work or are they primarily 6 volt and are now blown? If 12 volt is ok, where does the fuel sending gauge get routed from, color of wire might help?

I had changed my 49 to 12 volt after we purchased it, I installed a universal sending unit (12 volt) in the gas tank, the original one needed replaced anyway and that seemed to fix it. i however purchased a 12v to 6v fuel gauge reducer from Speedway motors but did not need it. For the radio I installed a radio 12v to 6v drop down. It works great. On the amp meter I just switched the 2 wires so the amp meter will read correctly (change from positive ground to negative ground).
