Questions: Have a 1951 Willy’s truck. It has had a 1953 ford flat head v8 put in it. I want to use the gauges on the dash. I have read that the Willy’s temp gauge uses a 90-10 ohm sending unit. Do you have one of these that will fit the flat head v8.

You may have to pick up some sort of fitting there locally to adapt.

Questions: I have replaced this part in the 1951 pick up and I have also replaced all the wiring in the truck and I'm using a 12v battery. Is there a 12v to 6v reducer for the gauges as all my gauges when powered up go full to right, EG: Fuel always full. temp always hot.

You will need to make sure your fuel gauge is properly set up for 12 volt. The guage itself needs to be 12 volt. I would also check your wiring and ground.

Use a DC to DC converter. They are made in many different configurations, just use one that goes from 12vdc to 6vdc and supply power to your gauges with it.

You dont have to drain it. Some may drain out on the head though. Just replace it but do it quickly.
