Ed you posted your question in the wrong forum. I'm moving this to the Austin Healey Forum where you are more likely to get answers.

Need some help with the gauges on a BJ8...all the globes don't work but when tested each one works!

How do you fix that???
I’m going to assume you mean bulbs not globes so you're referring to the small backlight bulbs?
Sounds like you have a bad ground connect somewhere.

Is the dash light switch off?
Do the tail lights and front marker lights come on?
Is the red wire from the lighting switch disconnected?
Check the grounds as noted by Healey Nut.

They are globes where he’s at. Love that nomenclature. 😁
