Nice!!!!! So when you coming by to do mine??? LOL Not good with electrical stuff, beyond my pay grade.
Yeahhh.. Old boy did it while it was in the shop. You and I are in the same boat reckon. I used to be a whiz at car stereo stuff though - dont know what happened. give it up I guess.
Dont wanna derail this good thread even though it IS mine...wow. Will ya lookie there? I guess people are still lookin at it.
5 years old - may be the 1st thread I made here.
Thanks @85 CA SIERRA 1500 - he made me go get fresh pictures. I should start workin on it again..
Speakin of fresh pictures...is this any better?
Fuel gauge down there where it oughta be - see the first post.
or I did mine in AutoMeter gauges. The three and a half inch speedo and tach fit perfect.
I started messing around with the stock guage clusters and wasn’t having much luck, and the used clusters were expensive even on ebay.
I bit the bullet and installed a Dakota Digital cluster with 160mph speedo and 8k tach that will be a noce touch when the LS swap is done...not necessarily the 160 speedo!
I just noticed the pull handles on the gauge set, easy access, cool!
Some good lookin gauges on here. I did the suburban gauges. But with the LS engine I’m maxed out on the speedo, driving down the freeway.
I didn't notice those either. That's a nice touch.
These newer style Dakota Digital gauges are on my Christmas list this year. I really like how much more they look like the factory gauges than most of the other aftermarket gauge sets. They’re pricey though. Last I checked they were about $1300 at summit.
Maybe Santa will oblige
I don’t see what is a pull out handle. but I am curious why maintain the amp gauge?
The pull out handles are not on the the OP's (Rusty's) post. They are on @Raider L (William's) post.
1974 trucks were built with an amp gauge. No reason not to have it since it's already wired for it. Then add the volt meter too.
almost wrapped up my install of dakota digital guages
do they do needles
junkyard searching shopping is the best way to find gas motor style old gm tachometers, old buses and some big grain trucks with gas motors, and also motor homes and many different older cars and etc,,
Lmfao $40 vs. $1300...
I had to listen to this album Soooooo many times in childhood.
