    Hey guys, I've got a overhead compass/temp gauge. Did the resistor re-solder to get it working again, but compass seems a bit off.

    I know the instructions/info is in the owners manual but I bought used and don't have one.

    1. Could anyone look in their owners manual and let me know which number to calibrate to for my compass? I am in Southern Central British Clumbia. Any value for washington state etc would be fine. I assume this is the "VAR" when I hold down the button.

    2. Is there any way to check/calibrate the thermometer? I notice in looking at the dark segments there is a "CAL" part, so I'm assuming this is somehow possible. Couldn't find anything on this part in the FSM.

    Thanks everyone, hugely appreciated.

    -Jay

    Slightly off topic, but I find it bizarre that used vehicles would not have their owners' manuals. Do people have them bronzed as a keepsake?

    My '64 Plymouth still had both owner's manuals and the warranty book, along with some purchase paperwork. That was 22 years after it was bought new...

    Maybe it isn't possible to adjust thermometer? I just thought with CAL being in the display, it would be somehow
