PostSubject: Finally Did The 9C1 Cluster Swap   Mon Mar 05, 2012 1:35 pm

After just about two years of getting the shaft on my first cluster, not having time to do it, etc. I finally got my 9C1 cluster installed. Went to Ironfistdog's place and got it done in about an hour. cheers All I have left to do is run the wire for the tach and install the oil pressure sensor. Cluster looks awesome at night and the speedo is off by only 1 MPH and I have a feeling thats only because my rear tires are 235/75. Once I get the right size on the back I think that will make it read dead on accurate. I think this may be my favorite mod.

Where'd you locate that cluster again? Whatever happened to your "missing" cluster?

That looks really cool, I am not a digital speedo guy and I used to think the swap wasn't worth the trouble, but after seeing that I kind of want to do that to mine. Or maybe somehow make the Roadmaster dash cluster work lol.

The RM one uses just about the same install procedure. Arrow

No, its just a beat up old bag. I used it to test out the doorbell horn fix, it worked so I'm going to fix my original bag now. Laughing

I can't remember exactly, but is there a chance the RM cluster could be modded to work in a 9c1 bezel? I just really like how they have the two analog gauges. Then again the 9c1 is the "certified" one, sooo...

Both clusters are the same size, so if you have a 9C1 bezel it'll fit.

I like that cluster I'm new to b-bodies so I havn't seen one of them yet. Are they Rare or hard to find? or are they everywhere?

Pretty rare now. They were only in the 91-93 police cars and LTZ's

91-93 rmw , 92/93 Rms clusters will work in the 9c1 bezel.
Or you can swap dash pads and make the dash go all the way over.
Just did one in the 92 caprice wagon for Laidlow91.
Matt if you find one I can wire it in.

I actually like the old Roadmaster dash a lot. I wonder about the OCC dash cluster as well? I've only seen one once, the typeface reminded me of a 90s Cutlass Ciera haha.

My Caprice dash is pretty clean so I'd probably stick with it, I'm sure the RM cluster is an easier find, but if you find a 9c1 dash trim insert, you'd prob. find a cluster with it and the RM cluster would be moot...

There was that blue interior OCC that Brian showed me. I pulled out the cluster but changed my mind while I was there. Probably still sitting in the car as I left it. I also safely disassembled the dash Laughing Pull the dash pad and surround! lol!

Wow, cool...I wonder what the whole setup would cost and was the pad/etc. nice?

The only thing that would irk me would be the leather bag thing that says Oldsmobile on it. Haha. I could maybe stick something over that though...plus the wagons have that extra button pod thing there too...

He charged me $125 for the cluster and dash piece, so figure that+ whatever he charges for a dashpad.
