Well Jon, It finally occured to me to just pull all the wires off the run position post of the ignition switch and replace one by one to isolate which wire provided power to the gauges. Did this and found the wire(only one I thought). I spliced in the CVR from the run pole on ign. switch to ign. pole on CVR. Other pole on CVR spliced to wire previously determined was providing power to gauges. Turned on the switch. Fuel and temp gauges worked as predicted.
Only thing was that prior to splicing in CVR with all wires connected to ign. switch, I turned key to run position and noted the amp meter was getting power as it registered a slight discharge.
Am I going to have to go back in there and chase down power to ampmeter and isolate it with the CVR also or will it be ok on 12V. Haven't changed the wire going thru the loop on back of amp meter gauge yet but know what to do there from your previous posts.
Small baby step here but I feel I am making big headway!
