  • gauge cluster removal on a 61 chrysler new yorker

    This car has a cone shaped set up behind the steering wheel and I need to remove the thing to replace bulbs fix the temp gauge turn signals and other stuff. Help help Please.

    Gee, for years I had a -62 & worked on every part of that car + an extra dashboard laying about, now I need to think...
    (Maby you ought to google in the meantime.)
    It's after all the #1 dashboard in the entire world.
    & push-buttons!
    Sweet memories.

      My memory seems to tell me there might be 2 screws from under(?) the cluster bit, look & see.

        Have you checked the link above? They have good information. It gives you the Tech Training that came out for the Techs each month. There isn't much on 1961 but if you go down to 1960 it shows removing the instrument cluster and testing it. I hope this helps.

          Isn't '61 the year with the "glowing" luminescent cluster? If I remember correctly, that unit uses a very high voltage, so be careful!

            60-62 is the same.

              That's right!

              There are NO 'bulbs' to be replaced within the dome on a full-sized Chyrsler dash in those years, aside from the brake light indicator.

                So what creates the high voltage? it has a variable resister on the head light assembly, but just where does this voltage come from.

                thanks for the help.
