Default HELP.... Newbie

I bought a 36 volt analog meter and it came with no instructions!!!! Just a + mark on one of the terminals. Also, according to my calipers itís a 2 1/8 inch hole I need in my carbon fiber dash... any suggestions on how to cut this hole (hole saw, dremel, or step drill)?

please help... thanks in advance,

Twink

masking tape on either side and cone cutter (which i think you guys call a step drill) and be careful

You can hook one side to your key switch and the other to your battery, I have used a hole saw, but you will need to be careful, it can tear the dash if you do not take your time. Could just use a dremel as well, depends on what tools you have.

Use a 2,1/4 inch hole saw and center it and hook the neg. side of the gauge to the main neg. on the batteries and then put the pos. side to the key switch and that ways it only comes on when you turn the key on.

ok , thanks for the help - I was just reading a few threads under the search and there seems to be a lot of discussion on to wire it to the key or directly to the batteries... there is no light in the gauge so it shouldnít draw and power... I read to gauge will do a lot of bouncing under power when wired to the key switch... if I wire it directly to the batteries will that stop?

twink - something to think about before you start drilling holes.

Plan out your dash for any future mods you might add. (12 volt plug, iPod holder, toggle switch's etc, etc.)

I didnt do this and didnt think about ever adding anything else. Few months later, I wanted too, but I had put something smack in the middle and wasted room and space.

Just my .02

scotty, a lot of what i read said when they pushed the petal down the gauge would go all the way into the red... and you would have to release the petal to read it
