Just to add to theconfusion,......it isstill positve earth,.......from what I can gather is that the 2 white wires can be swopped over ,....dont quite know what that means

You will have to find out with a multi meter if the rev counter part of the unit is connected to the outer body.

If the outer body is metal and IS connected to the rev counter internals, then you would have to insulate the body of the meter from the car body

If there is NO connection then you can connect it any which way.

Yip,.. sort of,...after nearly burning the car to the ground !!

Changed it to negative earth,...got the dashin only to find outthat the revcounter is blown,...and the speedo cable is so worn it just does'nt fit the square in thespeedo,.....so we have a bit of work to do on this lot

Other gauges all work,..and for the trip we ran on the GPS to stay on the right side of the law

Thanks Haans

I quite like the look of this setup. A friend of mine cut his dash and recessed the gauges, which does look almost OEM nice!

Let's see if I can get his pictures on here:
