I ask because I just went through this on my 71. Fuel and temp would spike but sometimes work. Drove me frigging nuts and i'm a jaguar trained auto tech (master of shitty wire). I found that the reverse light loom was shorting to the chassis causing the entire issue. Sooooo it's worth a look. Also it should be noted it would not blow the fuse.

Well there are a bunch of wire hanging underneath the car where my tranny is. Did I tell you I ran something over which maybe be the problem? I'll check the wires underneath the 510. Should I also check the wire harness and rear lights. I'll see if my reverse light work tonight.

KK so you got my curiosity going. Theres only 1 yellow wire going from the gauge pod plug back to the sending unit.  ohm the wire to see if its got a short in it.
