released to the market!
How to install (Autometer) gauges to a FG FALCON XR6T – Triple Gauge Holder Kit
Autometer gauges and components
SS inductions FG tripod mount
Speco Oil Filter Adapter
2x Hose clamps
Tools and consumables:
Additional wire
Teflon Tape
Electrical tape
Soldering Iron
Heat Shrink
Split tubing
Side Cutters
Shifter (shortened)
#NOTE# Not including tools used for Oil filter change and ICC removal
To remove the Top Cover where the kit is to be housed:
Firstly disconnect the battery, shouldn’t have to post a pic on that one
Next remove the tissue box as shown in the pic below, grab it at the bottom and pull towards you. You will
head a click and it will come out.
Remove the top cover. Place a screwdriver or hard plastic at the curve near the front of the cover. Leaver the
screwdriver down to release the clip from its mount (do this on both sides). Then lift the cover up and towards
you at the same time to clear the mount closest to you.
Remove the top connector clips. Big one is for the ICC the smaller on the right is the blue tooth module
Continue reading on how to install the gauges.
Step 1:
Install gauges to pod. Instructions provided should point you in the right direction.
Brass threads will need to be trimmed to fit the gauges. 5/32 nuts and washers may need to be purchased.
Step 2:
Remove ICC unit. Instructions for this can be found below:
Step 3:
Install wiring harness for all three gauges. Thread the loom with the gauge connectors first from the passenger side footwell (triangle panel will need to be pulled off).
Follow this path for the loom. Ensure that when the ICC is reinstalled, it will not pinch the cable. Stick adhesive
automotive foam to the loom to ensure that not annoying rattles occur. Make sure bothends of each gauge loom is
clearly labelled for future reference.
Coil excess cable under foot-well.
Reinstall ICC unit and replace top facia with SS inductions facia + gauges.
Step 4:
Pressure and Temperature:
Install senders. Oil pressure and temperature will require an oil and oil filter change. This is done so that the Speco Oil
Filter adapter can be installed. Instructions provided detail the order of components. A guide to changing your oil can be
found below:
Simply screw the senders into the adapter. Use Teflon tape to exact a good seal. Do not over tighten. Threads on
senders are easily cross threaded
In regards to the boost sender, cable tie the unit to a cable loom or support. Make sure that the sender is facing down.
Be sure to read the included directions.
Connect the sender to the VAC line that comes from the BOV. This is done by cutting the VAC line and installing the
provided t-piece. If you are finding it difficult to insert the T-piece into the Ford VAC line, dip the line into a cup of boiling
water to soften the plastic. Be sure to secure the connection with two hose clamps (to fit 6mm aprox).
Step 5:
Cut the connections to the gauges in the foot-well but leave about 15mm from each plug. This is done because the plugs
will never be able to fit through the grommet. Instead, solder some extra cable to the plugs (use heatshrink for insulation)
and thread through the grommet. Do this for all connections. Then, once you have decided on the correct length of cable
to be run from the grommet to the sender, plug it in and start neatening it up with split tubing and cable ties.
Step 6:
All that is left is the connections in the passenger foot-well.
This simply involves connecting all the sender extension cables to their respective gauge wires, and connecting the
power and lighting circuits.
Below is a rough schematic of what the circuit needs to achieve.
I personally made a small Jiffy box set-up to house all of the lighting and power circuit. It also supports the potentiometer
and fuses. Each of the gauges incoming supplies should be fused (as per instructions) with a 1A fuse. When making the
connections it is important to leave the fuses out. This will ensure that there are no stray voltages reaching the gauges
There you have it, all done. Now just examine your good work and see how it runs. The potentiometer if you haven't
figured it out is to match the lights to your dash, just turn it until you hit the right spot.
Good luck.
We advise that undertaking this work is at your own risk! This was a client’s car install.
