Oil/temp Gauges


(larry2236) #1

Regarding the threads on the oil and water temp dash gauges/idiot light. Has anyone installed aftermarket gauges ie: Smith, AutoMeter(AM), SW etc. & where in the cabin did you mount them? That’s the problem. No where to mount them
I installed AM gauges in my XJ-S clock opening. MUCH more accurate than the barrel gauges.

there was an expensive kit to make the temp gauge read correctly (for x308 anyway)

THe x300 may have had a correct reading temp gauge

The temp gauge works OK, the oil pressure gauge goes right to center, like it’s meant too, I guess. In reality I prefer the aftermarket gauge’s for accuracy and looks.
