Neill and Andy,
  Got mine in the mail yesterday and thank you.  The packaging alone (slipped in the piece of wood to firm up the package) was a testimony to the care you guys took in this project.  The quality of the PCB was phenomenal!  I laid them side by side and could see how well this one was made compared to the factory one.  I am absolutely confident that I will get at least 46 years out of this.  What it also did was confirm the last owner(s) did some wiring stuff and that my gauges are dead.  Oh well, one more thing to add to the punch list.  Thanks again guys, great job!

Thanks Tim! Responses like your's is what drives me to do this.  It is immensely satisfying knowing that I'm playing apart in keeping these great cars performing at their best.

HAY GUYS  OR LADYS , 
WHEN INSTALLING YOUR NEW CIRCUIT PLEASE MAKE SURE U CLEAN TERMINAL CONNECTIONS
I USED SOME 1500 GRIT SANDPAPER , ESPECIALLY THE LITTLE 90 DEGREE TERMINAL, ThIS WILL INSURE PROPER CONNECTIONS 

Image result for 1972 ranchero gt gauge cluster voltage regulator
FOLOW THESE DIRECTION TO CHECK instument Voltage Reulator
THE BASICS

 

Even though it probably doesn't seem like it to someone who's having problems with their fuel level gauge, these are actually very simple electrical devices. Understanding how they work makes it much easier to diagnose problems. Here's how the fuel gauge works:

The fuel gauge circuit consists of the sending unit in the fuel tank, the gauge in the dash, and the wiring and dash wiring (or circuit board) between them. As with most sensors, the tank sending unit is simply a variable resistor. Its function is to resist the flow of current from the ground to the gauge depending on the position of the float within the tank. The higher the fuel level, the higher the float raises, which decreases the resistance between gauge and ground. The more current that flows through the meter, the higher the gauge needle moves.


Fig. 5

The sending unit operates off a 5-volt pulse supplied by the instrument panel voltage regulator (IPVR, Fig. 5), so just running a 12V hot wire to the unit won't work, and in fact, will fry the sending unit. See Fig. 6 for the typical location on the backside of the instrument panel.



Fig. 6


Fig. 7 - '67-'69 vs. '70-'72 style regulator. The later style was for use with a printed circuit board. (click to enlarge)

You can test the IPVR without pulling the instrument cluster. Tilt the seat forward and pull off the orange wire from the fuel tank sending unit. When you probe the connector, your test light should flash on and off. You can also do the same test under the hood. Pull off the sender wire from the temperature sender and/or the oil pressure sender and probe those connectors...they should flash too.

Sorry if this is redundant, or a dumb question, but I gather you are making and selling new circuit boards for the instrument cluster on 72-73 GTS? Are they all basically the same cause I had been looking at some used clusters and noticed some are a different lay out than mine. Perhaps it's just the guages are differently positioned. Will the circuit boards be the same ?

Confused about why I have to tip my seat forward???

After posting that, I started to wonder if the instructions were lifted from a truck with the tank behind the seat.

I'm good with it either way. Struck me as odd on first read, then thought about trucks with the tank in the cab...
Probably a necessary step for them.
