sounds like we may be refering to two different gauge systems. 69/70 is more like an ammeter system. the gauge is connected in series between a voltage regulator and a grounded temp sensor. as temp goes up, resistance of the sensor goes down , which yields higher current, which inturn increase the deflection of the needle on the gauge. yada yada yada. either way its important for people to know that the vendors aren't selling the correct parts.
