    Gauge Cluster--73 to 87 (100mph speedo, clock, no O.D., no tach)

    That's the one!! Somehow I ended up with 3 gauges and the big dummy light for the brake. Everything else works so I was going to install the brake lens to complete the cluster. I may change the Amp meter to a volt meter once I figure out how to modify the wiring.

    Gauge Cluster--73 to 87 (100mph speedo, clock, no O.D., no tach)

    I never checked out the dash as it was in the truck when I got it. I looked in the owner's manual and you are correct, the light should be in the speedometer. Who knows, the truck has been through a few owners before I got it. It may be a compilation of parts from different years. The truck...

    @AyWoSch Motors... Where did you find the white gauges? Those would look pretty good.

    Gauge Cluster--73 to 87 (100mph speedo, clock, no O.D., no tach)

    The one I'm looking for is a lens. It allows the light to shine through if there is a brake problem. This one may be for deleting a gauge spot. I don't think the light could shine through if it is solid black. Not sure??

    Gauge Cluster--73 to 87 (100mph speedo, clock, no O.D., no tach)

    It's the "dummy" light for the brake warning. It's annoying without the lens and doesn't look very good.

    I'm looking for the lens that goes on the left lower corner of the cluster for the brake light (where the clock option is). I can't seem to find one aftermarket. Thanks.

    Been trying for many months to get some decals. Craig A is not responding to the post or DM. Are they no longer available and if not will there be another vendor for these? Thanks

    Anybody use classic industries

    Very easy installation aid. You cut open the large trash bags and cover the foam on your seat. This allows the seat cover to just slide right on without pulling or catching on the foam. When you get the cover just about all the way on, you pull the trash bags out. Works great.

    Anybody use classic industries

    The exterior is still a "in progress". The truck was pretty disgusting when I got it so I did the complete interior first. I've done the urethane bushings, ball joints, springs front and rear, exhaust, installed a 700r4, new brakes, tires, aluminum radiator, headers and many other engine...

    I bought my seat cover from classic industries about 2 or 3 years ago. It was the dark saddle color. It matched my interior pretty well and was very easy to install. I used the trash bag trick and they slid right on.

    SAE or synthetic

    I'm going to try the Risoline ZDDP additive. It's only about 6 bucks on Amazon and takes 1 bottle per oil change...

    SAE or synthetic

    I agree. Both my 1975 C10 factory service manual and owners' manual show the multi viscosity oil to use depending on the temperatures it will be operated in. It also states to have at least an "SE" rating. The Mobil 1 oil I'm using has a higher rating of "SN" and is the upgraded replacement...
