The other posts were the pictures that made me happy, now the question.

On my great drive through the canyon I noticed that my temp gauge was moving with my fuel gauge on the curves. It looked like it was being measured by a float. On the hard lefts, it drifted up into the 3rd quadrant and on the hard rights, it drifted a bit below 175. Not a lot or radically, but it definitely moved with the g force.

Anyone else see this? If not, any ideas?

The temperature gauge in my S3 does the same thing.

Wiring, wiring, wiring. Clean all grounds and contacts that have to do with the temp sender. Never noticed this on the 86.

The fuel gauge on my '79 would go all the way to zero when the gauge wires would ground to the chassis. I would assume it is the same problem. It is an easy fix to either adjust and clean the leads/contacts or wrap them in electrical tape to prevent them grounding.

I had the same problem on my '69 spider and after it occurring intermittently for a couple of weeks, it stopped doing it. So, problem solved. Gotta love these cars!

I have the same issue with my 1991 Spider and this started when I had the water pump replaced...so I wouldn't worry about it....
