Would this apply to the gas gauge as well? E(-) F(+)

I wired the plus side to the C side, and it seems to work just fine. Does not apply to the fuel gauge. You will mess that up if you get it backwards. if I remember right, my wire running from the sending unit went to the F and the power coming from the ignition went to the E post. Mine was a 1950 3100 6V.

same deal, look at the factory schematic, the gauges are shown there as they appear in the truck and the wires are shown on the sides they belong on .... and as a side note, the TF series changed sides on some gauges, the schematic is the bible

Bill:

I did exactly as you suggested and still got it wrong. One thing is for sure, either I or the bible was wrong...either way, it needs to get reversed.

Bill, I have not looked for the factory schematics yet, are they in the Shop Manual?

Here are illustrations of 1953 truck wiring diagrams:

I have never seem a 1953 Shop Manual - the illustrations above are from the CSN (Chevrolet Service News - compliments of Keith Hardy)

I do not know if those are the factory schematic that Bill refers to.

The FAM illustration is for a 1954/55 truck gauge. The 47-53 gauge is different, but the orientation of the leads/poles might be the same.

I do not know how you would know if the left and right attachment points in the CSN illustration are from the front of the gauge or from the rear of the gauge?

Thanks Gus.What I see, is the red 10g wire going from the amm. to the Bat. on the regulator would be on the drivers LEFT side as he or she faces the gauge. The black wire on the right terminal shows it going to the starter switch. It sounds like no harm would be done if wired wrong though.

...Factory Assembly Manual...

Tim is correct, looks like the detail and color code are the the newer trucks.
