Hi All.

I have a 1990 L series (Loyale for everyone in the US) sports wagon.

I am sick of the instrument cluster with only the speedo that comes with the sports.

I would like to head up to upullit tomorrow and get a cluster from a touring wagon that has both the tacho and speedo.

My question is...

Can I do a straight swap.

Is it just as simple as unplugging the old cluster and plugging the new one in or do I need extra wiring for the touring wagon cluster to run the tacho etc etc.

I do have a custom 2" tacho but I would much prefer the real deal.

Thanks

I want to say that the wiring should be there, from the factory. But I don't know the EA-82's all that well, so can't be 100% on that.

Hi,
if you pull your cluster first you can look behind to see if the plugs are there.

Like Tom, I can't be 100%. I only speak for myself, but I have had good luck with the wiring being already there (1990 Loyale RS (Leone?) and a 1987 GL wagon) for many things.
