I’ve made a few recent successful repairs the last month, so I’m trying to get the confidence to clean this ugly brown spot, blocking my view of the number 10 on my battery gague (plenty of good write-ups available in the archives, so that’s not my question here). I’m a software guy, so removing my first gague is a little intimidating…
I opened the panel to get to the back of the gague, and, while looking things over, I noticed this small, brownish plate, right below this gague, with 2 wires attached, and, “5 68 47211A, 6 BR”, stamped on it. I just can’t tell why it’s there. My car was manufactured in June of '68, is, “5 68” a date reference?
And there is also this, “068” sticker on the back of the gague, in fact, on the back of all 4 gagues, was that a year reference?
I am going to proceed this weekend, and hope I don’t cost myself money fixing this. I’ve read several hilarious comments about our spouses and the cost of this hobby, and it’s well worth it for me to start learning how to work on my car. This group has been a huge help with me developing some confidence, thanks for that!
