My car apparently was converted from std to tach and gauges in its past life. They hacked the tach into an idiot light cluster, and added the center gauges. I need the speedo mounting base that has the smaller slot for the tach cluster harness plug. I need the harness plug for a tach cluster, and I need the dash harness side of the center gauge harness plug. I have the correct mounting base for a tach, and tach cluster printed circuit already. If I have to buy a complete tach cluster for parts, I will, but I don't need it all.

Let me know. :)

No Mustangs at the moment.
I have the dash harness side for the 3 gauge cluster; they are still being made and are available from Newark.

I have the smaller tach dash cluster connector, but they are as rare as hen's teeth. They can be found on almost any other Ford/Mercury/truck from 70-74 except Mustangs and Cougars (but try finding an old Ford in the JunkYards...er...I mean recycling centers). I have to keep them so I can convert a standard to a tach harness, though.

So, I can get this plug from a dentside ford truck? There's usually a few in the local yard. I need this side of the 3 gauge harness plug. The wires are just stuck on the pins. The harness from the gauges to that point is fine.

Yes for the green labeled plug. That's the style that I'm having the most difficulty finding, as there are no old Fords in our local JYs. I'll pay good cash if you find any for me.

The mate for the 3 gauge harness plug can be found on a 68 dash cluster inter-connect harness. You'll need the proper pins to crimp your existing wires (if they are not there already) or if the pins are there, just shove them into the connector. I can provide you the connector for $2.50 plus $2.00 shipping. If you want the connector plus wire pigtails, the cost would be $12 plus shipping.

You can contact me via e-mail or private message.

I'll see what I can find in the yard this weekend. Maybe we could work a trade, if not, I'll order from you. Thanks for the help. : )

I got two plugs out of trucks. One from a '70, one from a '75. They are both too big for tach cluster. Probably would work for an idiot light setup, though.

So, I still need the plug from a tach cluster harness.

Yeah, those are the 18 pin varieties. I've got about 100 of those...
