Tach dash wiring. Is this correct?
#1
I have what I think is a tach dash wiring. Can someone help me here? Does the tach go to the wire?

Here is the cluster connector. Where do the center gauges connect?

Yes, that looks correct. For the center gauges, go to the passenger side about 7" from where the fusebox is and you'll see a section about 11" long that ends in a 8 pin female plug. That's the connector for the 3 gauges.

You seem to be the wiring guro. I need a 71 printed circuit board for my gauges. Bob from RCCi said you make a hard wire harness? Is there an issue with the repro printed circuit

The circuit boards, in general, have a tendency to fail: lifting traces, broken traces, etc. Reproductions, from feedback from my customers, indicate many times they don't work right out of the tube/box, and they have to buy 2-3 of them before they work correctly. Others say no real issue. From an engineering standpoint, the CC's are a bad thing from a reliability point of view. The hardwiring dash cluster is what Ford used in 67/68, and have a much better overall reliability than the CC's.

Midlife,
So the price for the harness is $100? I send my old harness to you? I just ordered a hypo parts LED dash light kit will that be an issue?

One last thing the tach is being rewired by RCCI. Does that cause an issue?
