Thanks Kevin. I was kind of thinking that was the case, but thought I'd ask anyway. It's always nice to know the little details about our rigs and their history.

Keven,
Yeah, the middle pic on #169 looks like an entirely different gage. Ever see one like that B 4. What yr stuff did U order to replace in it, none? U seen alota bronk gauges...
I parted out 3 - 4 (none of the '60s vintage) just to make my 1 and none had a gauge like that.

Excellent job Kevin. I can't wait to see it in the bronco w/LED's. I showed a friend and he will be contacting you when he is ready to do his. Keep up the good work!

Thanks Nelson

Kevin, My speedo reads 1/2 of actual speed. What causes this?

It could be a few different thing. A lifted truck with oversized tires will not read correctly. A damaged head unit will also cause an incorrect reading.

The gauge faces were so corroded that I had to add black overlays to correct the damage. The corrosion had eaten right through the middle of the fuel gauge needle so that was replaced also the green turn signal lens was missing so i added a new one of those.


This gauge was a lot of fun to refurbish. Obviously gauges in this condition present the biggest challenges and also end up being the most gratifying to repair.

Thanks for the challenge Rick!!

Just got my gauge cluster back from Kevin via FedEx today. Mine was in decent shape, but I got it cleaned up, repaired, and Voltmeter installed. It looks great and can't wait to get back in the truck.

Its $40 for the black or white overlays and $60 for most custom ones. Both prices include the installation.
