Gauges

What kind of Gauges can I use on my 77 Dodge D-150? Summit didn't have any gauges for my truck so i want to know what i can do except for going to a Junkyard. One more question if i want a Air/Fuel Gauge in there and I don't have a Oxygen Sensor what do I do about that.

For one I am not sure on the air fuel deal..have to do some looking for that piece but as far as the rest of it my local auto parts store has gauges fro reasonable which could be used if a fellow is will to make a dash panel to hold them..That is fairly simple..

The O2 sensor goes in a bung welded to the exhaust pipe near the manifold..Just look at a late model to see this part..The guage tho I have no idea as I have not yet used one anywhere..

On that bung you will need to weld in the threaded bung for the O2 sensor..quite common to need to make some minor mods to get to where we need to be..
