Removing analogue clock and installing obc

I have removed my old analogue clock and have bought a on board computer complete with wiring. Unfortunately I do not know where all the extra bits connect (e.g. temp probe).

There was a post many moons ago on how to do it but I can't seem to find it.

Any info will be a great help. Thanks.

Keep the clock. The OBC's rarely work properly anyway.

i agree... if the temperature is that much of a concern than bust out a thermometer.

Mine didn't work. It always said I got like 57 MPG - then it got stuck in German and wouldn't switch over.

Mine worked fine for the most part, but once every trip i had to poke the center of it to bring the display back.
