BP100 or BP101 Retrofit

TOOLS NEEDED : Hacksaw, 2 1/8" hole saw, Pliers, Phillips Screwdriver

1.  Unplug wiring harness(s) from back of BP100/101.

2.  Remove bracket holding BP100/101 in place and remove unit. 

3.  On your new A10 kit, remove aluminum mounting brackets from the back of the A10 Touch Pad (2), Tachometer (1), and Speedometer (1).

4.  From the front of the console, insert the new aluminum panel into the hole where the BP100/101 was located and be sure to feed the attached wiring and gauges into the hole first.  Note: Aluminum panel will be a tight fit. Be careful not to damage shroud when inserting panel into place.

5.  Now a cut will have to be made to one side of each of the 4 mounting brackets earlier removed.  To make a proper cut measure from the back of the alumimum panel to the back of the fiberglass behind the dash shroud.  Cut this amount off of one side of each of the 4  brackets.  Now remount the brackets to the A10 touch pad (2 brackets), Speedometer, and Tachometer.  One side of each bracket will be touching the back of the aluminum panel and the other side will be touching the back of the fiberglass behind the foam shroud.  The new panel should now be in place securely.  (See picture 5A below).

6.  Now you mount the fuel gauge, volt gauge, water pressure gauge (optional), and trim gauge (optional).  These will be mounted on the panel on the other side of the steering wheel.  There should be room to mount up to six gauges on a blank panel though your panel may already have select gauges and/or key switches installed.  With a 2 1/8" hole saw cut out the necessary holes for your new gauges in the desired locations.  Insert the gauge into the panel from the front side of the console.  You will again have to cut the mounting brackets as decribed in step 5 (these brackets require a cut to be made on each side).  Now wire (diagram below) and remount bracket after it has been cut to fit.  Repeat process for each additional gauge.  (See pictures 6A,6B,6C below).

7.  Connect wires from the A10 pre-installed butt connectors to the BP Dash by cutting the existing BP 100/101 harness off.

8.  You should now have a purple wire remaining.  The purple wire will plug into the purple wire in your key switch harness.  This wire will give power to your gauges when you turn the key to the motor.  If you have the trim gauge option you will have an extra brown and white wire which will have to be connected to the brown and white wire in the key switch harness (brown/white wire may be taped up in the ignition harness but it is there).
