    I am looking at buying a stock gauge cluster that has a tach. My gauge cluster has the fuel gauge where the tach is on this unit. I did a search and could not find anything on this conversion. Anyone done this before and if so what was involved?

    Thanks for the help,
    Rod

    If you get the whole cluster, you will likely need to re-pin the connector that plugs into the back of the cluster.

    Be aware of differences like mechanical oil pressure and the ammeter used on early clusters.

    what he said...

    I got the factory tach unit.. and all I had to do was move the wire for the fuel gauge...... did you get the factory plug wires for the tach with the unit you got?

    I basically got a full truck and tach was bad.. so bought another factory tach unit.. complete.. and tach was good..... :bow: $25 to my door :bow:
