gauge install

i have a 2001 f350 single cab, i bought gauges a few months ago and finally have time to install them. They cam with a "how to" manual but i was wondering how long its gonna take me ... i know my way around a wrench but am no where near a pro.

This might help -> Gauge Installations at DieselManor- 1999-2003 7.3L Powerstroke

It's not a "Pro Only" kind of job,,, but it does take a variety of knowledge like Trim - Electrical - Mechanical

I'm sure you won't have a problem!

I did mine not so great the first time as far as wiring goes. The other parts were easy and quick.
Taking your time really carefully would put you around 5 hrs or so. Took me 3 1/2 just to redo my wiring.

I made the wiring with my Isspro gauges look OEM (plastic loom, good Scotch 33 electrical tape for the ends of the loom), but even with that, it took me about 4 hours, not including paint time for the gauge cluster.

Bad wiring, bad gauge.

Did you forget the probe or install it in the wrong place?
