I brought this car in February. Had to replace the fuel pump to get her running. Now that she's up and running, I noticed that the fuel hand doesnt work, along with the odometeter. I'm mostly concerned about the fuel hand, but all help Is very appreciated. Can anyone tell me what may be the problem, and is It a do it your self job?
Thanks.

everything on these wonderful cars is a DIY...odometers usually go due to the internal plastic gears shearing off or pins coming out, search on here and i'm sure you'll come across a breakdown of a repair or two.
as for the fuel hand pull the cluster first and check for burned out fuses and loose wires, with age the back of the cluster becomes brittle and prone to breaking.
