Alright? Yes you do need a regulator otherwise the petrol gauge will read full and it is empty and the temp and oil will hadly move. I think you will be able to get something from lucas. If anyone knows what is required it would be great as I have the above problem.

They're 9v - got mine from the local Lucas place - about 8 from memory, or from a dead dolomite - it's fixed to the back of the seperate wooden dash bit in a bracket.

Cheers

Note to all: I really don't know when to leave well alone. I tried to get clever with the mods, then when they gave me a lifeline to see the error of my ways, I tried to incite more trouble via u2u. So now I'm banned, never to return again. They should have done it years ago!
