Hello Guys! Back in the ford game! (From 89 Cougar Ls) to a 1995 Taurus GL. This car only have 96K miles, runs great, but on thing really has gotten to me, is the fact there is no tech,
I was thinking, I have the 1995 base Mechanical cluster (non Tachometer), Would it be possible for me to switch the gauge cluster to one with the RPM gauge? Would it be a plug and play type thing?

To like this? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1992-1995-F...sQ5fAccessories

Or This? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1993-1995-F...sQ5fAccessories


Thanks!!

Yup it's completely plug and play :)

I can get you one a HECK of a lot cheaper at the junkyard...PM me if interested. $70 for a 15 year old gauge cluster is a joke.

Really, Thanks, but I forgot about this thread, and just bought one yesterday off of ebay,
It was for a 1995 windstar, but looks just like the one in the Taurus.

Is there a how-to? Did you click on the link I provided above?

Hopefully that Windstar cluster works. Some of them aren't compatible with the Taurus even though they look similar.

O no really. Hopefully this guy will let me cancel this bid then.

Any one selling a cluster that would work in this?

Thanks.

Usually you can find a cluster that works from a 1990-1995 Taurus LX/SE/SHO (only the L and GL don't have tachs) or any '90-'95 Sable. I don't remember anyone swapping in the entire cluster from a Windstar. I know pre-'96 Windstar speedometers will swap into a Taurus.

Also remember when you change the cluster, and if you want to preserve your car's odometer reading, the speedometer will swap right over from a non-tach to a tach cluster.

Haha, I have to do this mod as well, I've had the Mercury Sable cluster sitting on my dresser for months.

I want to do it but between not having the time and not wanting to break anything (and mess around with the speedometer cable) I haven't done it yet. I even got the whiteface glow gauges.

That speedometer cable is E-Z. Seriously, no worries there...it unclips in notime.
