Itís a metal hose, like a super thin brake line. Itís some kind of plunger but the line is cut about 8Ē from the button.

Interesting...looks like your shift rod coupler has been repaired with some Philips screws and locknuts.

So would you say the closer acc to the steering wheel would be for the fuel gauge? Any ideas as to what the second hole is on my dash ? Could it be another acc? This car has a few accessories that came with it.

The other hole is most likely for another gauge.
