    Glow shift 3 pillar mount

    Thanks Ben, I ordered it so we shall find out. That is a good idea to snug up the fit, use wraps of electrical tape.

    Thanks guys for the reassurance. I went ahead and ordered the glowshift mount. Gonna buy 1 gauge each paycheck. Instead of all 3 at once. Kind of pricy.

    Do you know if these are required, or do the gauges fit snug enough without? i dont know if the ISSPRO gauges include this piece always, or if its required to buy the below piece seperately.

    Are you running the ISSPRO EV2 gauges? It lists as a 2 1/16" gauge size, glad to hear they are a snug fit. Edit, I see you are running the Autometer 4th gen gauges.

    Thanks. I was just making sure before buying it. 1/2 the price is hard to pass up.
  6. Does anyone have any experience with the Glow shift 3 gauge mount, below. I am purchasing the ISSPRO EV2 gauges, the autometer mount is $80 on diesel manor, the glowshift mount is $40. Below is what I am looking at https://www.ebay.com/itm/98-02-DODGE-RAM-5-9L-24v-DIESEL-GRAY-TRIPLE-GAUGE-PILLAR-POD-fits-CUMMINS/292037961141?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    I did the mod as well but put a new alternator on at the same time, so technically mine doesn’t count. I would check all of your wires as this could also be as simple as a wiring issue.

    Yep, old chevys are simple. Our trucks look like there is a through bolt from the kick panel area as well.

    How is everybody removing the pin with the hinge on the truck? Or are you supporting the door and taking the top hinge off, new pins, and than installing it back on. Then proceeding to do the bottom hinge after the top is re installed?

    Everyone post a picture of your truck!

    Here is my engine after detailing it, I had a few mice chewing on my wires. sons of guns
  12. I logged my live data again this AM, and zero temp drops, ECT, IAT, and RPM's are all steady. I will start alternating where I park my truck, but since I have put the Peppermint bags under my hood I am not seeing any signs. This will become a monthly regimen of mine, to put new bags under my hood. Thanks for all the help
  13. Thanks Royal. I purchased the peppermint scented bags from Home Depot and also set 3 traps under hood. They were all empty this AM. The bags last about a month and then you have to change them out. The mice thing is new to me. I have never had issues in the past.
  14. I got all of my issues resolved finally. On my high idle switch the wires that were chewed on were the LED light wires, so I just taped those up and the rest of the harness is untouched. The issue I believe was where there were bare wires showing on the main harness going through the firewall. All is well now I’m very happy to report. I hauled a load today and it pulled like a champ. I used heat shrink and electrical tape to fix the damaged wire, it was only 1 wire thankfully. I also went to Home Depot and got some mice repellent. They are little peppermint pouches that tie. I tied two under hood. Does anybody have any tried and true mice repellent tactics? Thanks for all the help on this also, great forum to be a part of.
  15. I am going to pull it today, I’ll be in touch for sure either way. I am hoping it is just the casing that got chewed off.
