Help: R33 Gtst Fuel & Oil Pressure Gauge Dilemmas..

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

Issue with my car is that(long story short):

-It wasn't driven for a few yrs (few fam issues), but I tried to get it started and running every 3-4 weeks.

-Spent about a yr fully stripped for a respray so didn't get started much.

-Putting it all back together now and almost done

-Wasn't starting for a bit, so changed fuel pump from old Walbro to new walbro (was a lil dirty in the fuel tank), but nothing started.

-Change sparkies.. came to life. yeeeeeeehaaaaaaa!

So here's the issue.

-Putting back all the interior panels etc, standard gauges...

-I know there was a full tank of fuel as my hand was in it a week ago (bitch of a job!)

-Engine temp=works fine. Well looks that way.

-Fuel gauge=no working. Can manually move up, but just slides all the way back down past 'E'.

-speedo=can't remember (not registered so didn't drive)

-rev=working but seems to be out a bit. A bit delayed, won't go back below 1K RPM.

-oil pressure=working but seems to be low. At 2 during warm up.. hmmm..

-Boost-working fine

NOTE: About 5yrs ago (I have owned her for almost 11yrs!)I installed those 'Nismo' EL Dials which require you to pull off the needle and replace. I may have roughed her up a bit, but was working fine before respray.

Now not sure where to go. Felt around in the fuel tank again and checked with a torch, seems as though all wires are connected (wires from the lid to the pump, and wires that go from the left of the tank to the fuel level sensor although a bit dirty with brownish build-up on connector) and nothing else floating around. Don't think any other wires have come loose.

I was thinking of trying to swap with another cluster panel to see if was my standard cluster.

Any other suggestions? wanna get this beast back on the road...

Thanks guys, gals, peeps, all!
