"With the Ignition Switch in ACCY or RUN, the Instrument Voltage Regulator
suplies a pulsating output voltage to power the gages {mis-spelled in
text}  The output (5.0 volts average) operates the Fuel, Coolant and Oil
Pressure Gages{sp}." {empahasis deleted} 

The part number is DIAZ-10804-A, and it's the same as practically every
Ford with guages...they all use the same voltage to run the guages, and
often the same movements -- only the face or the screenprinting is
