When doing gauge swaps.....

I looked at the writeup for adjusting your odometer to match your current trucks mileage, I started thinking.

Can't you just swap the whole odometer piece from the original cluster to the new one? Will it still work right?

yes, it will work. some people swap gauges when the odometer stops working. in other cases like the expo sport white face ones, the odometer is opposite colors as the stock ones. different reasons to change the mileage. but you can just put the original odometer in the new one.

Yes. I even mention it in the how-to. I wrote it in a way where if you're just swapping odometers from your stock cluster to your new cluster, you just skip the big rolling section, then jump back into putting it in the new cluster.

Here's the how-to to future folks you may find this thread.... https://www.ranger-forums.com/f59/ho...-trucks-74062/

Thanks for that, I guess I just missed it, I finished the swap and I just swapped the whole speedo/tach control
