My Unusual ribbon cable...

Post by h00per »

Recently I tried to work out why my temp gauge didn't flash on start-up. I pulled the dash and found the middle contact was not attached. This is why...

Top is a spare part and dated on the PCB 1982.
Bottom is the part pulled from my bus no date.

Every photo I can find shows the temp gauge connects with the centre higher. Why are mine in a line?
