I see people with a dozen gages, and people with one or two. I think temp and volts is the minimum. Anything I will regret not having?
I'd feel alot better knowing what the oil press is doing. If I only had one gauge it would be oil press. I don't think 7lbs is too good at 5 grand.:shaking:I thought about oil press but my distributor is wired to an oil pressure switch. when the oil pressure drops to less than 5 psi it kills the motor.
I suppose I could change the volt meter to a trans temp and add an idiot light for the alt.
Thanks for the replies.
I have a cheap digital clock/tach/ that I got for free. Probably not very accurate, but I figure it'll get the job done.I think the tach is kinda being underrated in this thread. So I'll say that every real race car that I've ever seen has the tach. front and center. Why not at least have a small one in your dash. It makes diagnosing problems and performing adjustments easier too.
