Re: [DML] Re: Dash Light Rheostat



David,

You may be in for a surprise,  there is no winding in
the rheostat, that's what Marv was trying to say. 
Once you get into the rheostat, which is really a
variable potentiometer, you will find no wires. 
Everything is fixed to a plate, much like the fuel
sender, but on a much smaller scale.  I've had like 5
apart and had no "zero" success at making them work. 
That's why, and I speculate, DMCH will give you a $50
core value, you can't fix the inards, but the case is
valuable!!!

Mike
