I am installing a painless wiring harness in my 52 COE project.
I have the engine wires and starts right up.
I am working on the dash components .
While connecting the Dolphin brand gauge set, the oil gauge goes to the max without the truck running. Same with the fuel gauge. The fuel gauge worked at first then went to full without much gas in the tank.
Can anyone offer a suggestion or fix to this, the ground goes straight to the battery with soldered connections.
Painless? Not really.

    In response to Gino

Both oil and gas going to max indicates the senders are not connected to the gauges. You could have the wrong senders also.
Does the gas gauge match the sender ohms?
