Default ACC1, ACC2, ON3 Wiring Questions!

Little confused and have done a fair bit of searching. Trying to wire up an lc-1 with Auto Timer guage, and a Maddad Boostguage.

Question#1 - The Instructions say IG1(acc), and IG2(ig on) but we actually have acc1, acc2, and on3. So what to wire to what?

Question#2 - I need switched power even when cranking for the boost guage. I'm using HHH fuse splicers, anyone know a good fuse to splice into?

I suggest you use a fuse tap instead that way you don't splice into any wires. As for what to hook up to I think you may want to use ACC2 and ON. To find a fuse to tap on use a test light probe and check the power to fuse you want to use while changing the ignition switch to the positions and verify you have power to that fuse in those positions.

If you are talking about the wire for the illumination of the gauge the older vehicles used violet and orange wires for the illumination. The violet wire was tied to power and the orange wire was the controlled return side of the light. The light has to be isolated from ground. I'm not sure if the newer cars use the same colors or not.
