Thanks. A friend suggested re-engining my '67 K/10 Suburban with a diesel powerplant. I intend to replace the [non-original] 454, but I don't know what I want yet.

Right now, I don't have a diesel, so it's not a problem.
I've been saving a set of Autometer gauges, Tach, Vacuum. Oil Pressure and Water Temperature -- to set into the stock Deluxe 7 hole cluster in my '71 GMC Jimmy. I was thinking of having the gauges stick out, like your tach, but I'll still need the stock Speedo/odometer and Fuel gauges. Not sure how that would look with a mixture of recessed and protruding dials...

Had member tbone1964 recalebrate a diesel 4k cable Tach to a 5k cable tack for my 67. He does amazing work. Now the needle looks like the rest of them.

If you make some for the temperature gauge I would be interested in an overlay.

Is that a transmission temp gauge I see in the bottom of the fuel gauge?

madkid007 -- That could work since I'm more interested in the raw analog data than aesthetics, form, or time/portal regulations.

Check out Classic Industries G-Stock series gauges. Their gauges match the factory gauges pretty well. Not exact, but blends in with the stock gauges. I was thinking of installing 3-3/8 into the stock location. Sorry for the huge image size.

I did not know about this? Bringing it back up, how did you acquire this setup? I would be interested in any knowledge you have about the trans temp gauge setups.
