I tacked the question onto a reply about the tires but that wasn't a good move I'm sure- I noticed a voltage reducer advertised on the site that says it cuts the voltage to 7 for the temp and gas gage. mine seems dead for a good while and then eventually startrs working. while I know the temp takes time to come up the gas gage should work from the start. I'm wondering if that critter would likely be the problem or if it's more likely a bad connection. I don't know if they are intermittent or just fail completely.and where is it located?

They do often stop working intermittently before failing completely. It is located behind the center light console between the speedometer and tach.

If it's not the 7v regulator the faulty connection is likely under the seat right on the sending unit. I've had mine act up after swapping out seats.....give it a good cleaning

If both the fuel and temperature gauges stop working and start working at the same time, it's likely the 7 volt regulator. If one works fine and other doesn't, it is NOT the 7 volt regulator at fault.
