A buddy of mine had a bunch of cheap guages from harbor freight, and isn't going to use them so gave them to me.

Problem is, i don't have instructions with them and personally I'm not to sure on how to hook them up. The tach he gave me won't work.. when i connect it to the negative side of the coil it jsut gives me crazy readings.

I have a oil pressure, amps, vacum, exhaust temp, and water temp.

is one of them, yes i know i have them in my dash cluster.. but i'd like to see the exact numbers and hey they were free why not hook them up. Its perfect size to put inside were the ash tray is.

this one, exhaust temp and tach are all same type.

The question is, how do i hook these up?

Yes, i did search and no success :eekfacepalm:

just save up and get good ones like autometer.
I wasn't gonna put any gauges in, but for free why the hell not.
Had a cheapy boost and watertemp in my old car (same brand) and they did the job.

Yeah...I just brought up the oil pressure gauge. Most mechanical oil pressure gauges require you to run a signal line directly into the car. I wanted to warn you for the future bro. All the other gauges should be ok...but I'd think twice before installing a cheapo oil pressure gauge.
