    I did not rewire my gauge . I added two gaskets one under the sending unit
    and one under the gauge. I retapped the gas tank to u.s. 10/24 and gauge to
    u.s.6/32 thread and used nylon bolts. you need to run a battery positive
    wire to one mounting bolt on each unit to complete the circuit on the now
    isolated gauge and sending unit. I put a fuse in battery feed wire, use a
    key on feed. My gauge works fine. Wayne Schmiedlin 608-837-3948 need

    Thanks a lot Wayne, I was thinking of doing the same thing but was concerned
    about possible spark problems near the gas tank. I have the fuel gauge out
    right now but I do not want to take it apart (old and shacky fingers) so I
    may do what you suggest..
