Fuel in LBS, not KGS revisited

Fellow CS B767 Drivers -

I know this an old issue but thought it might help a few folks out in the community like myself (see screen name adjective) who aren't ready to throw more money at Microsoft for MSFS20 or re-purchasing add-ons, etc...

In trying to solve the problem of displaying fuel quantity in pounds rather than kilograms (as the default on the overhead display) I attempted to find and/or download the files associated with the modification to the fuel display; it was originally posted by Markoz but all links appear to be dead because they were posted *a while back* (understandable, sorta).

Anyhow, piecing the solution together, I re-created the necessary modification file ("Captain_Sim.b767.oh.cab") with the necessary .xml file corrections and, as a bonus, I also modified the 4 .bmp files so that the panel reads "LBS x 1000" rather than "KGS x 1000".

It appears the .cab file is too large with the file posting size limits - if someone can direct me how to get the 6.6 MB file posted, that would probably be helpful.

I also appear to be limited in one attachment per post or I'd just post the 2 .xml files and the 4 .bmp files for others to make their own .cab file.

Any interest in this? Any ideas on how to post the .cab file for future users?

Sorry about that, but the online site started asking for money to store and share files, and I refused, so my account was deleted. Undecided

I think you misread it. He changed the images from KGS x 1000 to LBS x 1000 as quoted below:
