Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

So, I picked this up from a guy on Facebook a few weeks ago.



An actual 2.2 5-speed tach cluster. The v6 auto one in the truck now is working fine, but it'll be nice to have the correct one in there. I'm gonna clear the needles, swap to LEDs and obviously swap over or adjust the odometer.



Don't want to lose 90k miles...
Speaking of the needles; both my original cluster, and the current one, from a 96 Blazer have wide orange needles. This one, which is also a 97, has thinner red ones. I'm assuming he just swapped them? The speedo one was off when I took it out of the box. I like them better anyways. Should look good cleared. They'll match the red lighting on my CD player.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

I think there's a thread showing how to change the odometer. If not, deathphoenix can help you out with that. The needles look just like the ones he put in my cluster. I forget what they were out of. I want to say Camaro.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Yep, those look just like Camaro needles.

If you're looking for just clear thin needles, I have a couple sets if you don't want to change those since a lot of people desire the Camaro needles. They're white needles from an Alero but show up any color your LEDs are.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Jerry, I've got that thread bookmarked and will be referring to it quite a bit. I'm definitely liking these needles. Just want to strip the white paint off the back of them so they're transparent. I think I've read that nail polish remover works well. I'll have to do a little searching.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

I think I recall some guys saying that's what they used. Not like you can't go to the boneyard and buy a handful for next to nothing to experiment with.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Quite right. Maybe I'll pull the old cluster apart and test it on those needles.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Have fun putting the speedo needle back on. Mine was almost 10mph off when I installed it. I had to install the cluster without the lense, barely push the needle on, and then go drive around using GPS and the trial and error method to get the needle in the right spot by taking it off an then putting it back on. Pain in the nuts.

Huh. Do the 94s not park the needle at power up? On the 95+ atleast, when you turn to key to run, all the needles park in their default position. I just swap them then. Obviously this only applys to the speed, rpm, and oil pressure, since those all default to zero with key on engine off, but you'll also see your current volt, temp, and fuel levels using this method, making it really easy. The only problem I always have pushing them on to far and having them skip and catch.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

That didn't work for me. Mine was also torn all the way down and completely reassembled with different stepper motors too. Pretty sure the cluster in the thread that I mentioned is my cluster.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

No updates. Just feel like bumping this thread. Been driving this beast a little more lately since the roads have cleared up and there's FINALLY no snow in the forecast. Got a bit of work planned for this spring/summer, including:
Swap gauge cluster to actual 4 cyl/5-speed with LEDs and cleared needles
ZQ8 steering box, front sway bar and Cherokee steering shaft. Should steer and handle like a fūcking gokart.
Redo e-fan setup. Probably replace radiator too.
Shift rear end, bed and bumper to the left about 1/2". Everything's still tweaked from when I wrecked it a couple years ago.
Patch frame. Left front cab mount is just about detached from the frame. No Bueno.

Since everyone likes pics

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Steve, I'm in Wilbraham, just east of Springfield. Nice Blazer you got. Welcome to the forum.
Greasemunky, it's been a struggle at times to work on this thing, but everything is finally coming together. I really love these wheels too. Thanks!

Not sure why I said Blazer. Nice truck either way.

Hell yeah. I live less than a minute from the Friendly's factory. We did get a shitload of snow. Still not as much as they did farther east though. Hopefully no more coming.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Got the courtesy lights swapped out for LEDs. And installed a clear dome light lens.







Pics obviously don't do much justice. Very cool, bright white in person. Weather permitting, I'll be pulling the cluster, swapping odometers, and installing the new one. Should look tits.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Very carefully pried the lenses off. I actually used the tip of an electrical test light, since it was sitting there. A very small flat blade screwdriver would be best. It's also a bitch to get the lights out of the socket/holder.

I used a small screwdriver to get into the map lights.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Thanks! Gave the truck a good cleaning today. Took it through the car wash, then shined the tires, did a quick wipe and vacuum on the interior, and did my biannual Sharpie touch up of all the chipped and faded black trim.













So fücking shiny!
