  2. Mark the outline of your new gauge with a pencil or marker.
  3. Draw the perimeter of your gauge.
  4. Drill the hole with a common file bit, using multiple drill marks around the marked hole.
  5. Mount your new gauge with the provided hardware. Some gauges utilize an adhesive pad. Follow the manufacturer’s suggested instructions.

Now it’s time to wire and connect your Mustang gauge.

For the speedometer installation, you should first determine which type signal is sent by your Mustang’s transmission: cable or electronic pulse. while newer models use the electronic signal. If you’re installing a cable-driven system, your gauge will have a threaded cable input. For electronic speedometer signals, you’ll have to calibrate the signal to your specifications.

The tachometer gauge installation, identify the lead wire and connect to either the tachometer output (aftermarket systems) or existing coil. Select your engine cylinder size with the new tachometer gauge’s switch.

If you’re installing an oil temperature gauge, you’ll also have to pay close attention to the installation instructions. Most electric temp gauges require the sender wire unit to enter the engine compartment
