gauge cluster swap in 78 ????
1.I recently changed the gauge cluster (as one unit including the tach, speedo, temp, fuel etc. plastic housing and all) in a Jeep Cherokee. The old one had a big obnoxious gas gauge the same size as the speedo and all idiot lights (just like my 78 truck) the new one is all gauges and moves the gas gauge to the side and gives me a tach (surprisingly plug in the wires and it works though I did have to change the sending units for the temp and oil pressure) the point is it was a quick swap. has anyone tried this same thing with a chevy truck and what does it take? are the gauge clusters with a tach almost impossible to find at wrecking yards? I am trying for a clean factory install for minimal cash. any help or thoughts?
2. is the factory tach electrial or mechancial?
