re your fuel sender 1300 dolomites dont have a fuel warning light, but others do.

I had a late 1300 and it had the wire for the warning light in the rear loom and I think a 3 terminal sender, but not certain. When I put the HL dash
in it I used the loom wires and it all worked.

So in short...1 wire does the light and the other the level. The third is the earth. If you have a wiring diagram its colour coded so you should be able to sort it out.

Black wire is earth, green/black wire to guage, the other one, (the colour of which escapes me at this moment) is the redundant one for the 1300's non existent low fuel warning light.
