Hey -

I did exactly this swap about three days ago. It's a pain, but it's completely plug and play: absolutely everything works.

There are a couple of things to be aware of: if you have a column shift, you need to remove the blanking plate at the base of the sho cluster and cut out where the illumination bulb for the gear selector needs to be. The connections are there.

At every stage, BE CAREFUL of damaging the cluster: one good knock on the needles, and you're done.

Good luck!!

Oh, and you asked about putting a new face on the speedometer....why? Just swap the whole cluster, don't bother swapping faces/instruments.
i want to have both a high speed limit number and i want a different color i found orange ones just a second ago on ebay. that way i can have orange gauges.

i found a 95 winstar and swaped the speedometer out of it and in to mine. $5 for just the gauge and 50 for the cluster so i just got the gauge.
