I highly recommend testing the voltage drop here (pin 16, fuse link) with the electrical system fully loaded. It just may be the cause of most of the voltage drop measured already.

Ok, will check the next time I get a chance.

We were at an event this past weekend and once again had a problem with the gas/temp gauges -- this time, not pegged, but DEAD.    Started aboit 20 minutes from the house.  Kicked in and out during the 4 hour trip.  Coming home, they worked 100% fine. Go figure.

I did replace the voltage limiter with a good electronic one (RTE) a ways back.

Check the drop when you have time...

Was the oil pressure gauge working correctly at the time the gas/temp gauges were out?

I have  a standard gauge cluster so no oil gauge (I have aftermarket gauges for that, water and volts).....

Ah, ok. Check the feed wire to the voltage limiter (Black Wire). The connector may be loose or corroded where it slips onto the terminal.
