Re: Mostizzles dime

Phil(DeathPhoenix) may have another one of those clusters. I never got around to doing the HVAC lights. If they're anything like the cluster lights I had to get different sockets to change the lights because the 94-97 have the soldered type sockets. I'm sure you can take them apart and solder in the LEDs if that's the case but you might want to look for some sockets from a newer S10 or maybe 3rd gen F body. That's just a guess though. I'd ask some guys that have done it in the 98+ 2nd gens.

Re: Mostizzles dime

My 2000 had the "soldered" bulbs in the gauges. I just grabbed the sockets from an old corolla and used those for my LEDs.

Re: Mostizzles dime

The credentials for the cluster i need are rather hard to match. I inquired about the one he had once, but its for a 5 speed truck and its MPH. But i suppose if i know my trans well enough i can put it in gear without an indicator. And adjusting to MPH and miles instead of kilometer wouldn't be too hard. Idk! and So essentially i could maybe just create a harness using #74 sockets so i can plug in the bulbs and swap them easier. More importantly im not even sure is my wiring is still good. Coincidentally all 3 bulbs are either burnt out, or something else is wrong because they haven't lit up in many years.


Edit.. I just had a crazy tach cluster theory. I saw a pic of a 97 blazer cluster without the clear lens. And it almost looked just like a '94 (the cut out for the steering coloumn was just a half circle) Now do you think it would be possible to take the lens from my '94 cluster, and attach it to another cluster (if i find one in a junkyard here, so its canadian) so the lens lines up with my round column rather then the larger opening for the airbag column? Hopefully i dont sound like a jack off and you understand my theory.

Re: Mostizzles dime

Get you a test light and go to work. The clusters do look very similar aside from the lens and bezel. I can't say for sure whether or not the 95-97 will swap. Might be worth looking into.

Great, thanks, just as I'm reading this repairs have started and my visitors have decided they should stay another day cuz it's supposed to clear up on Saturday.

Re: Mostizzles dime

So SK is officially "fixed", luckily the visitors saw the forecast and headed out about 8:30 this morning.

Re: Mostizzles dime

Glad we have a token Oldsmobile guy on the forums, my first car was a cutlass! I remember you saying you wrapped the tailgate, why didn't you just wrap it red?

Re: Mostizzles dime

It was painted black intentionally. lol Just the tailgate lock got wrapped due to me getting tired of the crappy metal starting to rust and popping the paint over and over.
