Led Ring Installations

 

RPM LED Ring Installation

 

Note:  The intent of this step is to make sure that the rectangular, black LEDs cover the rectangular slots in the gauge face.  This will prevent the normal blue light from shining through, and allow the LED lights to shine through.

 

1.  Turn the RPM gauge face over and tape it to your working surface with some electrician’s tape.

 

2.  Place the RPM centering ring on top of the gauge face with the cables pointing down.  You want to align the ring as follows:

 

a.      Place the black, rectangular LEDs on top of the slots in the gauge face so that they cover the slots as completely as possible. 

b.      Do NOT deform the ring unless it covers some of the numbers.

c.      You will want about a 1/16” clearance around all the edges in the gauge face.

d.      Be VERY gentle if you must deform the centering ring.  It is not designed to handle axial motion, and may break.

 

3.  Once you are satisfied with how the ring is centered, glue the ring to the surface of the gauge face.

 

Speedometer LED Ring Installation

 

4.  Turn the Speedometer gauge face over and tape it to your working surface with some electrician’s tape.

 

5.  Place the Speedometer centering ring on top of the gauge face with the cables pointing down.  You want to align the ring as follows:

 

a.      Place the black, rectangular LEDs on top of the slots in the gauge face so that they cover the slots as completely as possible. 

b.      Do NOT deform the ring unless it covers some of the numbers.

c.      You will want about a 1/16” clearance around all the edges in the gauge face.

d.      Be VERY gentle if you must deform the centering ring.  It is not designed to handle axial motion, and may break.

 

6.  Once you are satisfied with how the ring is centered, glue the ring to the surface of the gauge face.
