A special thanks to Soundguy, allenp, oldgrizzlybear and Inspector507 for all the help and advice through the forum. I finally got all of my gauges installed on my 1700. The temp gauge reads 190 deg. at 1000 rpm idle and 215 operating rpm. Oil gauge reads 28 lbs at idle and 48 operating rpm. Does this sound about normal? The gauge assembly is a really nice accessory for the tractor. Those idiot lights caused a lot of unnecessary stress. If anyone else is interested in installing gauges just look back in the forum history. There's a really nice "thread" that covers this subject in detail. If that doesn't work just look right here. There's a wealth of information free for the asking. Thanks guys!!!!!
Although I don't feel I helped you much, I'm glad you got them installed. The ranges you posted sound about right.
