AU Series I and II/III are not compatable.

As MAD has said, the Oil Pressure Gauge in the Seies II/III is actually just like the Low Oil pressure Light, it operates off an oil pressure switch not a sender. If there is oil pressure it goes to the middle of the gauge, no oil pressure, it reads zero, just like an idiot light.

Series I actually has a working pressure gage with the oil sender not a switch.

The LCD display for the odometer is stuffed. You could get it replaced but the easiest way would be to replace the Cluster with another from an AUI.
