    Alright, on 69-72 blazers and trucks, what kind of gauge goes in the hole on the bottom second from the right. I've seen a lot of these dashs and they have always been blank. Thanks

    i have a dash that someone swapped into my blazer before i bought it, it must have been from one of the larger trucks, c-40 or c-50 maybe? it's got an Air Pressure gauge in that spot, but nothing connected to it, just a capped threaded pipe fitting on the back.

    That spot originally housed an air pressure gauge for brakes on the bigger trucks. There is an aftermarket replacement lens and gauge to convert it to a vacuum gauge. Classic truck sells the conversion for gauge clusters w/tach for pretty big money ($190)! Probably better ways to go, but an option nonetheless. They also sell a kit to convert both the tach and vacuum gauge combo.

    Thanks for the info guys, i'll probably just leave it blank though. For now anyways.
