    Originally posted by Chester  Thanks David, ive busted my eyes looking at schematics all morning , none of them have an easy to understand explaination of the back of the switch box where the posts are for the wires to attach. the posts are not all in a row as the diagram shows, there are 5 posts on the back of the switch with 3 in a row on one side and 2 in a row on the other side. which ones are for the rht and left tanks, the guage, the hot wire and the switch valve for the fuel.
    the color code is blue-left tank, tan/white-rht tank, brn-gauge, green- switch valve, pink/black- hot wire.
