Gear Vendor and steer safe

This past week the gear vendor over drive and a Steer Safe device were installed. Both work great. The gear vendor shifts effortlessly and drops the RPM a bunch. Week after next we will take her for a drive and check mileage.
Also the Steer Safe keeps the steering centered and will return to center hands off.
Oh yes we have a 75 Argosy 26' with 454 on the Chev P30 chassis.
Next job will be to eliminate a bunch of extra wiring that others have installed some of which work and some doesn't. The dash oil and amp gauges don't work so some one hung those extra gauges under the dash. I'll fix the originals if possible. Anyone have advice?

Did you have an original steering damper? Most 1974/75 models I have seen don't unless retro fitted (like Bella).

The ordinal gauges are all still available new from Mill Supply.
