Received solo bag in the mail from another member here. Mounted today. Ordered one of those fancy combo speedo/tach fuel gauges with the fuel tank kit. Rain stopped long enough for me to take a 20-minute ride today. Now, back in the barn she goes until Friday.

Are you going install the new Tach/Speedo yourself? Keep us posted on how you like it.

The guage itself is pretty easy to do, hardest part is finagling the fuel pump assembly
out of the tank to add the new sending unit.

The mechanical part of the install looks pretty straight forward. I'm curious on how the fuel level indicator setup goes. I had read some had trouble getting it to work properly.

I had read people had issues when trying to install the fuel level sender part after the combo/gauge had already been installed previously. I just installed the the sender into my tank after my paint job, since it was already all apart. I have had the gauge installed for a few years. At first the gauge wouldn't give me the option to set the fuel tank size, even after pulling fuses, unhooking battery etc. But after running the engine for a min or so and shutting it all down, it eventually gave me the option.
