NOS early P-30 instrument cluster on Ebay

Price is steep, but as the plastic bezel goes for $200, and the gauges $40-60 each, and that doesn't factor in the speedo, printed circuit warning lights etc....so if someone is looking the replace everything it maybe worthwhile.

1974-76 Argosy instrument cluster

Nice looking instrument cluster. He definitely has the years wrong though. I'm pretty sure that cluster was only used from around 73 to 75 or 76.

Did you manage to get all of the kinks worked out of your instrument cluster?

Still working out some bugs Brad....at least one of which is a little silly. The guys at the shop fitted my speedo to your cluster and installed. However they did not connect the pressure line from the oil sender properly and that was what lost the oil pressure reading on the first trip. Also they seem to have reversed the connection to the fuel gauge - so it always reads full (whether full or not). But the last one is really frustrating - they kept the bezel from yours which was broken, not my one that wasn't.

I seem to be spending each evening 'making right' small things they didn't!

Heck, it wouldn't have been that much more difficult for them to move my gauges and the circuit board to your cluster. Interesting short cut

Yeah, nearly as interesting as the tech seeing the mini-blind end/box brackets (that came with the kit from Airstream) were cracked, reporting to the project manager who said to install them anyway. Guess what fell off first time I drove anywhere.....

It cost a full $2.20 per mini-blind, to buy new (domestic quality) brackets from Home Depot and less than 5 mins for me to swap them....total spend $6.60 (I bought a spare set!).

The project manager was just plain wrong about that. That's the sort of person where meeting a schedule date is more important than getting it right the first time. Unfortunately I've worked for people like that and it's exceedingly frustrating.

I have seen warrantied used ones go for under $100, and all the parts (other than the darn printed circuits) are available new but it costs about the same to assemble. A modern replacement cluster is also available at around $600, it is a direct fit but all the wires need splicing and the oil sender needs changing to an electronic sender.....that is my 'last resort'

The seller asking that price is one thing, whether he gets it is another!

Well the listing ended, so someone must have paid what he wanted; better get your one cleaned up and listed quickly Matt, and Brad I may owe you some money for your old one!

It is cleaned up nicely. One small crack on it because it was used. Look out for it on ebay!

Hopefully you don't spend that money before it's in your Paypal account

Not yet. I'd like to buy some awning arms for this Carefree I pick up a few weeks ago off of my parts RV. If it sells then I will treat myself to that and new fabric! I miss having an awning on an RV, my Argosy did not come equipped.
