Here are some pics of the new gauge cluster I'm instaling on my friend's 67. Everything that can be bench tested was verified already. Just a bit worried about the fuel sender's condition, 'cause the fuel gauge never worked for my friend and it may decide to play a trick on me, but we'll see. The smallest LEDs I found, for turn signals & hi beam indicators, are a bit less than a 1/4", couldn't find smaller ones locally tho.
Nice piece, and it fits perfectly on the dash's opening.

My suspicions were right, the fuel sender had to come out. Got here yesterday, from the US, and it worked OK. Now, the darn autometer speedometer doesn't move a bit. Removed the dash assy. and the speedometer cable(center) doesn't move at all, with the car running on stands. Didn't had time to check today, but the tranny is a 4 sp Muncie. Is there something that might be missing inside that area? Like a pinion or something? I'll check this weekend, but if there're some hints, it'll be appreciated. I got to get rid of this car, it's taking me too much time, better spent cleaning mine. :D J/K, I want my friend's car performing as it was my car.

Pull the "bullet" (the thing the speedo cable screws onto the trans)from the side of the Muncie (one small bolt and a flat bracket holding it in place, then just pull on the case). When the bullet comes out there should be a plastic pinion gear that comes out with it. When the trans spins, that plastc gear spins and turns the speedo cable. The gear may be missing or broken/worn out, so its not turning when the trans turns.

I bought a rebuilt muncie and hooked up my speedo etc only to find out the shop never put a speedo gear in the trans. Its kind of a pian to get to the area once the trans is in the car, but its not that bad.
