You need the Saab fuel gauge and an early 914 fuel gauge with the round black plugs on it. Take the Saab fuel gauge apart starting with the ring and face. Go around back and remove the 3 screws. Drop gauge out the front. Take a small fork and gently pull up on the needle. Take two screw off dial face. They are VERY SMALL. Turn assembly over and undo the two ground nuts and plug. Be careful pulling apart. There is two small washers on the base. Unit and mounting will come apart. NOTE THE TWO WIRE CONNECTIONS. Unsoder the wires. Now your ready to take the 914 gauge apart the same way you did the back of the Saab gauge. Remove needle and face screws. Go around the back and undo one post nut. Base will separate from the back. CHECK WIRE CONNECTIONS. Unsoder from base. Take the 914 unit over to the Saab base and match up the wire terminal. Soder in the wire and capacitor. Reassemble base with two small washers and 1st nut. Put ground spade and 2nd nut on centering the spade. Your conversion is DONE. Ready to send off for face plate silk screening. If you have some needle paint, go ahead and paint it too. (NHS charges $15 to paint needle).

If you started out with a known good gauge your costs should only be for a new black trim ring and silk screen cost. Trim rings are $45 each.
