Dead fule Gauge

I am restoring a 91 Wrangler and every time I start it something new is broken.It keeps you on your toes. Recently the temp gauge broke, I figure that would be an easy fix. Now today, when I started it the fuel gauge was dead. It seems an odd coincidence that two of the four gauges are dead. I am not sure where to start on this one, seems like it'd be a sending unit but I can't locate one on the Auto Parts Web sites. Anyone have a clue where to start here? I did search this site first and did not find much that would help.

Randy

Pull the bezel, 6 screws. Pull the gauge cluster with crap ass copper on plastic "circuit board" attached. Remove so called circuit board(jeep really chinced on it) and clean contacts with emery cloth or a pencil eraser, also clean gauge contacts. Reassemble and install. Might work, might not. It won't hurt to try though

................this or fine steel wool and light coating of dielectric grease or vasoline. Corrosion is a common issue on these things
