    I am installing some autometer full sweep electric gauges. Fuel pressure, water temp, and oil pressure. I searched and couldnt find anything. Is thing any info or directions specific for a fox body? I know the basics but I was looking for a more in depth description. Thanks for the help.

    They are full sweep electrical. They will be mounted on the dash.

    just follow the insructions and make sure you use good quality wire and hardware. Stay away from any of the crimp style connectors. Solder all of your connections and cover them with shrink tube.
