I bought an 87 4.2 and none of the gauges (including the tach and the gas) work. I pulled the air cleaner off and found that alll the wires around the carburator had the insulation burnt off. Either an electrical short or perhaps a small gas fire. I repaired all the wires and the gauges still do not work. I am hoping there is a fuse somewhere that blew. I did check the fuse panel and they all look okay. What has me a little more perplexed is that the gas wires would not have been with those that got fried. Could there be another fuse that controls the gauges elsewhere. HELP. Thanks Samahi72[/b]

none of my gauges worked and I replaced a fuse and noticed after I replaced the fuse that every now and then if it gets bumped , that particular fuse bracket must be loose or have build up on it because it will flicker ... I would get in turn the in to the on position and the fuse is located near the top right . just wiggle some of them around and you will hear your buzzer come on when you get it right..I know this is a stab ,but worth a try
