Want more? I think I have a cluster and a bunch of misc pieces for the cluster. I don't need any of it since I went all custom gauges.

I would gladly accept any/all parts, to get the OEM gauge cluster rebuilt, and pass on what I do not need.

Thank you so much

Update

Put the gauge cluster back in, and now have temp working, but fuel still not working.

Will trouble shoot that again, and see where the problem is, as we bench tested the gauges and all worked.

Wiring to tank reads 28 ohms, and thought we had checked it all the way to plug in on back of cluster, but something still not working on fuel gauge.

Oil pressure right up there cold near 80 psi, and seems a bit high.
Not sure what oil/weight/filter as still has oil that we brought it home with, sitting 18 years and still looked clean on dip stick. Bottle in back of truck says 10-40.
Just getting it running, so running as is before making too many changes, but for sure will change before driving on the road.

Installed grounding strips, one at carpet line under dash next to park brake, and one in engine compartment on PS fender well.

Wired direct to battery ground.

Main reason was to ground new Volt meter direct to battery, but useful for stereo, lights, CB, and other switches which require ground.

Short video after cluster install-

It sounds really healthy and smooth! I would think 80 is fine at cold idle. Mine was 60 at cold idle with 10/40 and dropped to about 10-12 at hot idle. So if yours also drops 45-50 psi as it warms up that still puts you in a super healthy 20+ psi. AMAZING for an AMC V8. Oil pressure measure is after the oil filter so a plugged filter does not raise pressure; it drops it.
