Dash work & a new voltmeter
Posted August 22, 2015 - 01:52 AM
I always wished my dash was light up at night. I find the 12v gauge more useful to be honest, and I love that the dash gauge actually does something now! Next step is to fix the charging system as I found that my alternator is only putting out .22 volts.
Looking at my photos also got me off my butt to finally paint that steering wheel cap in some vinyl black paint. LOL

That looks real nice! Thinking of using a volt meter in my Allis project.

Looks sharp. Great work.

I put a volt meter in my JD317 when I rebuilt it. Just a plain analog gauge but like you say, thats what looks right on these GTs. Volt meters are easier to wire into the circuit and can give you a good indication of how your charging system is performing.

Now that the steering wheel cap has been painted, the whole bit looks better!
Now to just get the charging system to work so that j am not running straight off the battery!
I almost forgot... I fixed the choke by making a new cable from a spare throttle cable. I did have to shorten it by maybe 6" and rebend the end for the carb, but he choke is hooked up again! She normally does not need choke at all, but on super cold (below zero) weather she does need a little to fire cold.

Looks great, might do something similar on the 12 I'm doing a resto-mod on.
