1994 Brave Chevy 454 - aftermarket gauges

Hey all, I have a new 1994 Brave. New to me of course. I am trying to fix all the little things to take me to NASCAR races. Everything on this very clean and nice RV is stock. It has 45k miles on it. It has the 3 idiot gauges on it AMPS, Oil Pressure, and Water Temp. Can anyone recommend a set of gauges they have used on their RV. Thank you Bryan.

Hi Bryan,

After the coolant temperature gauge went bad on my previous '95 Trek (GM 6.5 Diesel), I bought an aftermarket gauge and sending unit at a local auto parts store. It turns out the factory gauge was reading 15 - 20 degrees too low. I suspect any decent aftermarket gauge may be better than factory gauges (I read someplace the Ford oil pressure gauge is nothing than an on-off switch, and doesn't reflect actual oil pressure at all, it just moves the needle).

Try this site for lots of gauges JEGS Online Catalog - Free Shipping on All Orders @ JEGS

Your oil pressure gauge comming from the motor, may have a built in safety switch, This allows the motor not to start if it sees no oil pressure. This is something you should check into before putting mech gauges in.

If a sender has the fuel pump shut off it will have extra connectors for that.

eGauges.com - Auto Meter, Classic Instruments, Defi, Isspro and VDO Gauges, Senders, Mounting and Accessories has a good selection of good quality gauges and senders. This is a sister company to eshocks, so anyone who has used them knows the selection and service they will get from egauges.
