    I think it's pretty typical to have that in a 912 with the lower window being the handbrake light.

    I think the 67 911 normal used the same gauge as the oil level and pressure gauges were removed to distinguish the lesser priced normal from the S

    To set the record straight, the lower light under the fuel gauge is the low fuel level light; the handbrake light was fitted as the lower light in the combo gauge to the right in 67 912 and 911 Normal cars.

    Yes, that's the gauge in my normal '67. Everything started above is correct.
    Thanks for servicing my y clock Jerry, nice to have that working again and at a very reasonable price too!

    BTW, I really needed one of those Strike Force GI flashlites
