It should be 2-space-6.

Post a link to the ebay auction you won.

well ok, its official, im an idiot!! the guage i won on ebay is not the right guage. gee, it only took me 3 days to realize it. i went to hook it up then noticed that its just idiot lights, not the analog type i have. man, sometimes i wonder where my brain went on vacation too. well, so here i am, ready to hunt down the correct guage this time, guess ill pay more attention to the picture to make sure its the right one. and yea, my connector is also a 2 pin space x6 connector. ok, off to see a dr or something!!

heres the link on aution i won, guess if i woulda looked closer ida seen they were idiot guages!!

Would you be interested in selling the speedometer?

And don't feel too bad...I think everyone has made that "perfect" purchase that was much less than perfect when it came to bolt-up time!

yea i can sell the speedo, cant sell the idiot guage cluster cause i went to ebay to see about another guage, ofcourse they didnt have one so i decided to try to solder a new pin on my old one, so i took a pin off the ebay one i got and it worked... i then went out and in 5 minutes had it all hooked up right. go figure. ill take 5 bucks for the speedo plus shipping? let me know.

Great fix!

$5 is quite fair...as long as you aren't a $45 for "shipping and handling charges" kinda guy!

You want paypal or a check or money order? Get her boxed up...let me know the total and we'll pm addresses. Cool?
