Anybody use the electric fuel level or electric speedometer ? How do they hook up to 64 Mustang ssenders or do they have their own senders?
Thanks Joe

They come with their own senders. I just bought a set from summit.

How does the electric speedo work, Does the sender go on the trans. where the cable is now?
Can you calibrate the fuel sender?
Thanks

Yeah the sender goes on the trans and it has a couple of wires that go to the gauge.
Not sure about calibrating the fuel sender though.

The fuel gauge should list the ohm values that it reflects. It needs to match the sender. Like from 75 to 10 ohms. Other makes use different values.

Not sure about Stewart Warner electric guages, but with Autometer electric guages you can get various fuel guages. For the Mustang, the stock fuel sender will work. You just need to insure the guage reads 73 ohms as full, 10 ohms empty. You should not need a special sender.

The speedometer requires a seperate sender that is not usually included and usually run about $60-$75. Autometer will work with the Ford VSS used in the 86 - 93 Mustangs ( ~$16 at Autozone). The Ford VSS has dual outputs, 2 wires to feed the computer which can also feed the electric speedometer, the other output is for a typical speedo cable.
I just left the cable off, but put a small plug in there just to insure fluid wouldn't leak from there.

I just bought a set of 'Power Series' and it came with every sender in the box including the speedo sender. Its a hall effect sender.
