Installation

1. Find a convenient mounting location. DO NOT mount over magnetic surfaces. DO NOT mount meter where surface temperature exceeds 125 degrees F. As a general guideline, if you can place your hand on the mounting surface without discomfort while equipment is at full operating temperature, then it's not too hot for the meter. 

2. Use drill template (Fig. 1) to locate mounting holes. 

CAUTION: DO NOT DRILL INTO GAS TANKS OR ENGINE CRANKCASE. If in doubt, contact your dealer.
3. Mounting will determine sensitivity of the meter. In most applications, the appropriate mounting sensitivity can be easily achieved. See Fig. 2 for mounting sensitivity options.
CAUTION: Only qualified personnel should make electrical connections. Disconnect power prior to working on electrical circuits. Failure to follow normal electrical guidelines may result in damage to equipment and/or serious bodily injury.
