Almost done, you still need to change your signature to 502 from 454
Congrats on a job well done !

The A/F ratio gauge was well worth the purchase price. It does provide live data with both a digital readout of your air/fuel ratio and a green-yellow-red LED bar graph readout. It also has a graphical view which provides a constantly shifting line graph of the reading, in real time. It can be connected to a data logger also, a luxury I did not have.

While I was tuning my carb, I had the gauge wire-tied to my handheld vacuum gauge so I could watch them together. After every adjustment I made, I would take a road test and a video of the gauges so I could compare each change with previous adjustments and judge their effects. After I had the carb dialed in, I did mount the gauge in the dash where the clock was.

The gauge is not really set up for dash mounting, it has no provision to secure it from the back. It is the proper size for the hole in the instrument cluster. I bought this mount from Amazon: Amazon.com: Blox Racing (BXGA-00106) 52mm Small Base Adjustable Gauge Holder: Automotive. I took the mount apart and used the band that is supposed to clamp around the gauge. I pushed the gauge through the dash and put the band on from the back of the dash to clamp the gauge in place. It worked fine.

In addition to displaying A/F ratio, the gauge displays voltage. My Teleflex volt meter reads 16V when the ignition is on, I can now use the new gauge for an accurate digital voltage readout. You cycle between the A/F and voltage displays using the touch screen on the front of the gauge. PLX Devices PLX Devices | Electronics & Automotive also makes modules for temperature, pressure, vacuum & boost. You can use the single gauge to monitor multiple sensors and scroll the displays to show each parameter. The gauge can receive data from up to 16 sensors. I plan to add temperature sensors for my engine oil and transmission oil temps soon.

It is a great way to add multiple gauges without cluttering up the instrument panel.

Unfortunately (or forunately depending on how you look at it!) my dash only has 10 2" openings and they're all filled

Actually I was surprised to hear that any of these rigs had dash clocks.

I am hoping that the Fuel/Air gauge will help me set the idle and low RPM mixture so I can pass this darn CA smog first time!
What does yours read at idle and say 2000rpm with no load?

Why don't you just move someplace more civilized like Kentucky?
