    350 but doing an LS swap
    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!

    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.

    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.

    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,,
