Not sure what you're trying to do, but here's some photos from a pair of combo gauges I have/had for sale in the Classifieds.

Combo on left is a 914.641.101.50. Per P914, this is from "1974-1976 2.0L models in which the "Appearance Group" was not ordered, making them rare, but more common than the 1973 combo gauges." I bought this one when I removed my center console in my '74.

However, earlier this year I bought off eBay the right combo. That's 914.641.102.40. Per P914 this is "the 1973 and very early 1974 model year Porsche 914 fuel gauge". It's slightly dented at around 2 o'clock.

HOWEVER, I've swapped the fuel gauges, because the one in my .50 stopped working. So to get the correct holes/plugs, mentally swap the fuel gauge from the right side into the left side.

Does this help?

All that said...what are you trying to do? Just identify which wire goes where?

Cool. So the black / blue wire is listed on the original dummy gauge as lighting the gauge cluster (Bowlsby diagram #1), the combo gauge has no place for it, at least listed on the diagram above.

The combo gas/temp gauge does have a place for a gauge light it is the opening for a bulb socket that is behind the off white or beige dot right next to the green oil pressure warning dot. It is actually in the same position as the gauge light on the gauge without temp. gauge. All the lights are the same they just moved the brake warning light from the top position (replaced by the temp gauge) to the left of the generator light.

I have this gauge too. My white light was a blistered orange colour with no bulb holder fitted, so i replaced it with an orange semi transparent sticker and blanked the back of it. Going to have to revisit this.

This is what you should see if you pull one of the gauges off, three rubber shrouds that direct light to the warning lights and one reflector to back light the gauges.
