    Finally getting around to install gauges again. I needed to replace fuel gauge, but don't remember the order of parts to reassemble it. (It's only been about 7-8yrs since I took apart) These are the parts I have and new gauge. It's a 72

    Anyone? Just need to know the order of re-assembly.

    Is it a factory fuel gauge or a reproduction, such as OER? I replaced my fuel gauge with OER last year, and it did not require the balancing resistor across the back terminals. It must be built into the gauge. If it is a factory original gauge, the resistor connection can be found in the electrical diagrams on this site.

    It's OER. So does the tan insulator go on first? Next to metal plate? Then studs through plate, circuit board, nuts?

    Yes, as you describe. The tan is an insulator between the circuit board and the metal casing. Take the nuts off, lay the ciruit board down on the tan insulator, and put the nuts back on.
