Does this gauge passively illuminate when mounted into a lit under dash panel (3 gauge mount)? I have a typical chrome 3 gauge dash panel that mounts to the bottom of my dash. The panel accepts two bulbs for passively/indirectly lighting the gauges within. The other 2 SW gauges that I have in this panel each have a slight window on their sides that let light in from the wired lightbulbs in the panel for illumination. Does this gauge have the same light port /window on its side to passively illuminate it from the existing bulbs in my panel? (like my oil & water temp sw gauges do)

This gauge does not have any light ports or windows on the sides (around the perimeter) to let light in. It does have a 5/8" hole in the back of the gauge that has a removable plug so that you can add a back light using bulb kit 665366FK.

Will it work in a 6 volt system? If I match it to a 240 Ohm sender will it work in a 6 volt car?

The bulb in the gauge itself could be changed to 6 volt but the gauge itself requires 12 volt switched power. The ohm rating makes for proper gauge operation but hooking up to a 6 volt system on the vehicle would not allow the gauge to function properly.

Can you provide the ohm breakdown for this gauge? Looking for Empty at zero ohm - to Full at 90 ohm to match my existing sender.

Fuel Gauge Interface Module
(Part #91012910)
                        Fuel level gauges are designed to work with  specific sending units that vary from one automobile or gauge  manufacturer to another. Some increase resistance from Empty to Full,  while others decrease as the level goes up. For a builder updating their  vehicle with new gauges, this presents a problem in that the  aftermarket gauges must match the sending unit located in the tank. This  module will allow you to use your stock sender with any fuel gauge. You  no longer have to remove the tank to add a separate sending unit or  modify the sending unit that comes with a aftermarket gauge set.
  • Simply wires in-line between your gauge and existing sender
  • Allows you to use your stock sender with any fuel gauge
  • No need to remove the tank to add a separate sending unit

Choosing a fuel level sender:

What brand of gauge will you use?
Speedway carries the excellent Stewart Warner brand of fuel senders. They are compatible with all Stewart Warner and Classic Instruments fuel gauges.

How deep is your tank?
Measure the depth of your tank where the fuel sender arm will be located. Choose the sender with an operating range which includes that dimension.

Right or left-swing arm?
Most fuel gauge senders attach with a 5-screw pattern. 2 of these screws are farther apart than the other 3. Position yourself such that the 2 wider-spaced holes are closest to your chest; a right side sender will have the arm (or "float") extending to your right, and a left side sender will have the arm extending to your left. This only matters when replacing an existing sender. A first-time installation can use either one, just drill the mounting holes accordingly.

OHM
The OEM’s used several different resistance ranges for fuel level indication over the years. However, some of the aftermarket gauge manufacturers follow the common Stewart Warner values (240 ohm empty – 33 ohm full). The gauges and senders that we carry (385 & 391’s) use these standard Stewart Warner values.
