A higher value, lower working voltage on the back of the gauges than the one across the points.

Check, it may be the same part used in the alternator.

Hey guys, can anyone tell me if this looks like a new fuel gauge. The amp meter is yellowed, the needle is faded, this looks new. Now im wondering if it was replaced with a 12v version. The way it was wired it would have worked with limiter bypassed. Is that possible and how can i tell? I dont see any part #s, is there any way to tell?

It is a factory gauge for sure, made to run off the voltage limiter's 5.5 (+ -) voltage. Could be NOS, could be nice used. Some of the used ones I have sold were this clean.

Im glad you let me know, Im going to hook it back in with the limiter in line. Going to get a new limiter just in case. I want everything to be correct. Again thanks.
