Hey Jon, Thanks for the info so far! I am going to ask more stupid questions.
After contorting myself enough to look at the back side of the cluster, I see one large green wire originating at the key switch and going over to what looks like a circuit breaker with two threaded posts.Is this green the hot wire coming in? If so, could you just splice the CVR in this wire and have 6V to all the guages, lights, etc? For the life of me I cannot see where the wire on the other threaded post is going.
On another note, the light switch has a large yellow wire that comes off one post and loops thru the amp meter ring and then to the fuel guage. I know I will have to reverse this for neg. ground.
What I would like to do is pull the inst. cluster out so I could look at and work on it easier but the 2 screws on either end do not allow you to pull it out into cab but looks like once screws removed, the cluster pushes forward and behind the dash. What am I missing here?
