What specific gauges are they ? Some require more technical skill than others to install.

You really only need power lighting and sensor wire(to switch and your vacuum gauge ill only need power lighting and a vacuum source (from the intake manifold) you can buy a 'T ' adaptor from ford or repco that screws int where your oil pressure sender joins the engine, simply unscrew the sender attach the t piece reconnect pressure and temp sensors then just wire em up. From memory last time I did a tacho, WHITE =lighting RED=power and you should have one or two spares on your oil temp gauge which connect to sensor
