Well, it seems APT Instruments is unwilling or unable to return my gauge cluster and the primo fuel gauge Plateaucal gave me. Maybe they will someday.

In the interim I now need another gauge cluster, the type that screws in the leads. If you have one, please consider selling it to me.

Patrolling for parts....again,

What am I missing here? You sent them the gauges and they won't send them back? That is crap!

Well, I am trying to give them the benefit of the doubt. The one time they have answered the phone in the last ten months a person indicated the person responsible just got home from the hospital. I did not pry and waited another month hoping things would get better.

I think it is a disorganized one person shop. They aren't taking emails nor are they answer the phone.

So no, there is no way to reach them... but if I do.... I will surely ask for my gauges back and not get off the phone until I have some message of what is going on.

Patrolling for parts again,

Thank you River, I thought of that and If COVID wasn't still scaring me a bit I'd would have already pounded on their door myself.Any help would be appreciated.

All,
Is this gauge panel for a 1963-1966 Patrol?

No, that looks like a '68.

That gauge cluster has the push button for the starter. Similar as to what was mine originally (65). I think all previous years were the same.

It's got the push on blade connectors on the gauges, and the headlight switch has a plastic connector. Maybe '67 but I think that style headlight switch didn't come out until '68.

Another indicator of year is the speedometer. If it were early years, it would have a female connection versus a male connector that the cable attached to.
