    72 FJ40 converted to a 3B

    Pulled the instrument cluster out yesterday and started to ID wires for the swap. Couple of questions on the cluster. The Good: Glass is in tact, no visible rust, gauges move freely The Bad: My gasket and the seals around the glass are dry and very brittle. May need to replace that if...
