For us guys upgrading the charging system, I found a guy in Tn. that can change your ammeter into a voltmeter for $79. This eliminates the fire hazzard and you still have the original gauge. John @ redline gauge & clock 731-571-0766....

Here we go:

Forgive me for sounding ignorant (in the event the prices are listed and what you're willing to do as far as work)... but how much would it cost me to get my cluster/gauges rebuilt/restored/re-calibrated/etc. on my '68?

I know the clock is running slow, a few parts are missing, and everything is just worn in general.

Thanks

Hey Jeff, you may have answered your own question to an extent, but a lot depends on what exactly you want done. The OP of this thread appears to have left the forum, but have a search around and you'll find some answers.

The guy I mentioned above might be a good place to start, if he can't help I'm sure he'll have some contacts.  Wink

A factory shop manual is almost a must have for any of these older cars.  What problems are you having with the cluster?

John & Tammy Dvorski? That couple may be doomed with a name like Dvorski. I think that's what they call it in Russia when a married couple dissolves their marriage.

Don't know where to post this.  I pulled my cluster and then put it back in.  Some gauges were not working so I needed to test them.  To verify they worked, I used the setup in the picture below (a 5 v telephone charger, some resistors and alligator clips from radioshack - and followed the information at the start of this thread).  I found I could hoop up the alligator clips with the cluster installed for checking.  I could check continuity as well.  As it turned out, one of the gauges (fuel) was not making contact but was working.  A little wiggling of the nut fixed it.

Who in their right mind would say

"The science should not stand in the way of this."? 

Science is just observation and hypothesis.  Policy stands in the way.........

Or maybe it protects us. 

I suppose it depends on the specific case.....

Your phone works on DC current.  A much better idea than lugging a car battery around

I was meaning that it was clever to come up with the idea.  I would have likely done it the hard way by getting a 12v source (although not by lugging a caar battery around) and then either running it through a factory limiter or a pot to bring it down.

OK.  Basically just a power source?

I bought a little power supply box for when or if I ever do something with my dozen or so clusters'.  I didn't know if the 5V phone cord had some certain qualities about it that made it special?

My little power supply.

Is this done with the whole cluster or just send the gauge?

I am about to send mine off but need to figure out what to do first....

Yup, lets just hope it works as good as it looks!! turnaround time was about 3 months or so.  My wife was teasing me about how excited i was after I saw the seconds hand on the clock move for the first time in 15 years  Cry   That was when I tested the dash after putting it in the car.  she just doesnt understand  icon_smile_big
