The gas gauge on 1959 chevy brookwood is not working. I removed it from the dash and the white resistor on the back side was burnt. Any ideas as to the ohms rating of the resistor so that I could potentially replace it!?

Also I rewired the car with all new wiring including the dash. I am wondering if I flipped the pink and brown wires when assembling the wires into the L shaped connector. Pink is the supply and brown to the sending unit. Anyone have a picture they can send or let me know which connection is pink if you are looking at backside of the unit.

I can't help you with the resistor question and the picture may not be correct for your car but this is the way that my 1960 Impala is wired. Maybe someone else will chime in. Hope this helps. Lamar

I'm having issues with mine as well.the needle starts to move but doesn't go past E. haven't checked the resistor though.

Lamar - as they say "a picture is worth a 1000 words". Perfect. 1959 and 1960 are the same. So the wiring picture is what I need. Thank you.

Also just a note for you... Looks like the light to your heater/fan control fell off.

I noticed that, I had the control out a couple of weeks ago and I guess that I felled to put it back in. I never have the need for the lights to be on so I wouldn’t have known it was out except for taking the picture.
