Hey guys, just after your thoughts on aftermarket guages like Autometer, VDO etc etc, what do you think is better, electric type or mechanical?
Also, to fit a guage in Plymouth cluster where the clock would normally be, what size guage should i be looking at getting?
Thanks.

Joe I like the mechanical gauges myself They seem like they are more accurate to me. On thwe electric they are more things to cause a problem. Like sending unit ect. If I can remember right my gauges are the standard 2-1/4 inch. It has been a few years since I put them in but I think 2-1/4"

I agree with Bobby.
Mechanical gauges are generally more accurate.

Happy new year Bob. I've been just putzing around doing little things. I'm hoping to be more motivated in the spring. The guy I bought the bluw 57 off of took the choke and all the linkage off. I've looked on ebay for the same # holley so I can replace the missing parts. That keeps me from starting her up in cold weather. Been following you're comments on the red sled. Have you picked up the stroker kit yet?

Ron I decided against the stroker, well for now anyways, I would love to have one but I would have to streghthen up the drive train and probly put a roll cage in her, I don't really want to put in a roll cage. It runs the real high 12's or low 13's right now, Im planning on pulling the engine and tearing it down right after My New Years Eve party. Check her out and freshen her up. Going to have some work done on My edlebrock heads , port and polish and CCed and a new good valve job on them. I have had several people tell me they didn't have a good valve job on them when they were new. Then Im getting a New Custom made Quick fuel carb 850 I beleive it flo's either 920 or 970 . Im hoping to run in the mid to lower 12's Now that is respectable for a 2 ton car yu can drive on the street with pump gas. Smile
You know I thnk I have some choke parts around for an 850 if that wold help I will look around. Smile
