so..... we got amps, oil, and temp in the regular positions.... but whats that on the bottom left?
hmmm, guessing here maybe air pressure ?
is this out of a c50 series truck?
i blew up the pic, but cant tell, sorry
i dont know what its from. i blew it up too, and couldnt tell. alot of clusters have a clock there..... but it aint no clock..... and its not fuel...
edit: ohhhhhh....... volts..... 0 - 3.0 - 6.0 - 9.0 - 12.0 - 15.0?
this is an interesting cluster...... its got the fuel underneath the tach.
Its air pressure it is probably a daul gauge with one needle that is white and one that is orange.
I'd say it is air pressure because I have seen C-70 trucks with the same gauge cluster in them
I like that 'fuel' under the 'tach' setup. Anyone know what year/models had a cluster like that?
That's definitely out of one of the "big" trucks, I believe the one I grabbed a setup out of like that was early 80's.
If you want one of those I know where some are
77 and newer C-65's and C-70's had that gauge cluster. And that air pressure gauge is for a truck with an air shift 2 speed rear axle and hydraulic brakes. If you didn't ask chev about the how the axle shifted you got the air shift and air compressor for free...but spec air brakes and you got the **** charged outa you and they told you how difficult it was to put an air compressor on that truck, guess how I found out
think that gauge would work with an on board air setup?
Dont see why not.. wonder if its mechanical or electrical?
If elec, all you should need is the correct sending unit. If mech, a line needs to be run to the gauge.
Will that gague cluster fit in Blazers and Burbs (mine is a '90 burb) or is it too big?
The air gauges are mechanical they have two fitting that come out the back I made a jumper hose to make sure they would work for a buddy and they work awesome. There are 2 needles on that gauge and 2 air fittings on the back. I would like to see someone use them I will in my 73 blazer eventually but where I can get them wants 100 bucks and I need to put that 100 bucks elsewhere right now.
That gage cluster looks cool.
If the seller wants $100 for just the air gauge you can get a gauge from a semi that will work, standard 2 and an 1/8 inch gauge for a lot less....
Will such a guage cluster bolt in place of the stock cluster in a 1973?
it should... but you need to check a couple guages:
OIL: mech (73-77/78) or electric (post 77/78)
VOLT: voltometer or ampmeter... i dont think its a "plug and play" thing, but im not sure
