USA Rally Cluster


Since we didn't get these up in Canada, I figured not many of us have seen them, so am posting a good detail photo of one I have.  Wish we had them in Canada!

I did put one in my coupe, which isn't stock in any way.  Wired into the factory harness with a few key changes...

I was thinking I'd power it up and make some kind if lighted static display my shop, but when I flipped it over I found this one is missing it's PCB. It's been stripped of pretty much everything outside the case.

The PCB is different for a gauge car. I'd be better off perhaps trying to wire it up manually, but how would I do the bulbs? Those 194 sockets cut into the gauge cluster kind of require the PCB to work.

So unless someone has a clever idea on the bulbs let me know. I could drill the holes out and put pigtail sockets in there, but that's kind of serious modification.

I might have a spare PCB. They're the same for 69 & 70 Ralley clusters and at one time I had a couple NOS ones.

Wow, do you mean you had a couple of NOS rally clusters or the PCBs? I'd imagine the PCB is the same for 1970, please let me know! If I can't find a PCB I'll look at hardwiring but would rather not modify it.

Here's what confuses me though: Under group 2.480... oh wait, never mind. I was going to say they "all" use the same PCB, but that's because I'm looking at the Canadian book! So there's rally and non-rally, as far as I know. Otherwise the same.

For whatever reason (and I can't think of one) the PCB is different from 69 to 70 though.

Here's the back of a 1969 rally cluster (nearest yellow drill) and a 1970 rally cluster (with green and red resistors). Naturally I'm somehow missing BOTH pcbs, but the cases seem identical from a quick look.

I'm also curious why the light bulb socket for the gauges on one end is a size bigger than the other end...

I had a couple NOS PCB's. I'd have to check on them, and whether I have the clusters that needed them. I'm pretty sure the clusters are gone, but not sure if I still have the PCB's.

Sounds like the Sesame Street episode on cooperation! I have clusters and no PCBs, you have PCBs and and no clusters. Let's cooperate!

Ames Performance produces the circuit boards for these.

Thanks, it looks like they do! PM615. I think Clint might be able to part with 1-2 originals, and I'll pick up a repro to finish the second if I need it. Didn't expect those to be reproduced!

Does anyone know the right part number for me to order the little light bulb holder sockets that you put the bulb into and then twist into the PCB hole?

I have a couple of two different sizes, probably from my truck, but none fit perfectly! So I'm not sure which one I need.

I think it is likely this one but am not sure, and I'm not paying $6.62 per socket!

https://smile.amazon.com/Wells-355-Instrument-Panel-Socket/dp/B000C9ADUG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1520957195&sr=8-2&keywords=88860432&dpID=51rKTtkUqFL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

88860432

For whatever reason I can't find it in the parts book, I can only find "SOCKET, INSTRUMENT CLUSTER PRINTED CIRCUIT WIRING" but it lists only 66-69 and RHD only for 69....
