Mine just arrived today. Where have others with the unit mounted them? To give you a sense of under dash space, I have a 66 with no A/C
I may do the same on a board with my Dakota Digital fan controller...but that is Bluetooth so I should be able to futz with that remotely.I put mine in the glove box next to my ignition box. It makes it easier to fiddle with to get the gauge to read where you want it.
I pulled a wire from the back of the ignition switch while the dash was out to hook the MeterMatch up to the gauge and fused it for protection.I got mine about a month ago and its sitting in the garage. I feel like a completely rookie when it comes to the installation even though I've learned a lot in the past since since I got my 66. Would love it if you can document the installation with pictures. For example, not sure where to pull a wire from the battery to power the unit.
The fuel gauge are designed to have a pretty slow needle, so fast movements inside the tank when driving don't impact the level it shows. The MeterMatch have no impact on how fast or slow the fuel gauge are.from the time that you start the engine, how long before the needles swing to their "as calibrated" condition?
Has anyone else experienced this additional 25 second delay?This slowed the needle movement so that it took about 30 seconds to settle into its reading. For fuel, this is fine because consumption takes a long time. But for oil pressure, this is a deal breaker for me. I want to know to within 5 seconds of starting the engine if I have pressure so that, if not, I can shut it down.
I got in my Meter Match and connected it to my fuel sender/gauge. I noticed that the fuel needle sweeps at the same speed as without the Meter Match. It moved from full <E to the F line in about 5 seconds or so.Has anyone else experienced this additional 25 second delay?
I can theorize the reason this may happen...
That certainly makes me rethink going to a 5v digital regulator- that and their reported high failure rates.
So if you locate it in the trunk - you could use the wire from the gauge on the sending unit - save ya from taking the dash out.You could even install it in the trunk or wherever you want. The MeterMatch box does require a +12 volt wire to run, but it doesn't need to be near the fuel gauge.
