Can you explain how you got each gauge to work? I'd really like to know, I'm going 5.3T/TH400 in my car very soon.As stated above, if you're talking older Mustang's (pre '99), you should have no issue getting every gauge to work just fine, speedo included.
Here's my Fox. TH400 transmission:
'83 Mustang, 5.3L Turbo, 9psi Pump Gas, 0-132 on Drag Radials - YouTube
My friend's '96 GT with Heads/Cam 6.0L and 4L60E. In the video the tach appears slow, it's just the video for some reason:
96 6.0L Mustang Idle tuning - YouTube
And yes, Factory tach's are very innacurate. I was shifting my Fox at 6k, but looks like nearly 7 in the video.
Ah that's simple enough.. what about the tach though? I know it'll be off (as it is in your video's), I'd just like it to work.It's very simple really. Just use all the stock 5.0L Senders on the LS motor for the water/oil. There is a plug in the RH rear head on the LS motor, remove the plug and drill/tap the head for the Pipe Thread Water sender on the Mustang. Autometer makes an adapter for the oil psi sender threads on the LS motor to take it to pipe thread as well, then just use your 5.0L Oil Sender.
The speedo cable is equally as simple with a cable from these guys:
Speedometer Gear, Speedometer Gears, Ford, GM, Dodge 700R4
It will have a Ford end and a GM end, works great. The Ford and GM speedo heads of that era use the same rev/mile so you then calibrate the speedo by the driven gear just as you would normally.
Mike i'm sorry about not seeing this post sooner, or responding to your PM. I'm rarely on Corral.net, I sent you a PM with my contact details.Ah that's simple enough.. what about the tach though? I know it'll be off (as it is in your video's), I'd just like it to work.
