Hi all
long time no speak.
I have a 1970 Torino that I'm trying to get registered here in Perth Western Australia.
I'm having issues getting all the dash to work correctly and noticed that the printed circuit is a bit thin in places. I would like to buy a new one, Ford Part number D00F 10C956.
I just cant find one anywhere on the net!
Anyone have any ideas?
Regards
Stephen

i see one on ebay. you might contact the seller. it seems that the auction ended without it selling

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Torino-and-Fairlane-Speedometer-Cluster-with-AC-Controls-/322537823905?hash=item4b18c09ea1%3Ag%3A6DgAAOSwXYtYtIzs&vxp=mtr&nma=true&si=71naGCRcUdOcVHocag%252FGlmYnEzk%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

then again, it looks like that one is questionable on the printed circuit as well.


our 90's mustangs have the same printed circuits. on my previous mustang i put a 5" autometer 160 mph ultralite speedo in there. to make it fit i literally cut that printed board in half. i then scraped the coating to copper, made a small hole in the copped trace with an xacto blade, inserted a lightly tinned wire in the hole, and soldered it. the butchered cluster outlasted the car. you might seriously consider fixing what you have. it's free to try

Thanks for the link.
I have seriously thought of using a conductive pen and then just tracing the tracks on the outside of the plastic as they are clearly visible. Just not sure how to put an insulator over it so it doesn't get scratched off when refitting.
I found a place here in Perth yesterday that are going to test it all for me and see if it can be fixed.

insulation is easy...just get a rattle can of clear lacquer.

you can use conductive ink, but a better solution is to solder wires to the good parts of the traces to jump over the bad places.
