Dash.


Recommended Posts

 In the middle of Elctrics and need my Dash building back up. Now I am just guessing where things go as I bought the project all in bits. Think Ive got most Dash bits but will probably be missing something. Got a good Idea of Where some things go but not how they are fixed in.  In these Pics they are just propped in place , no screws or fixings in yet. Most of the holes line up but its the Binnacle that holds the dials that I cant figure out where to fix it to as there does not seem to be any holes for it, Does it just sit in there when the rest is screw in ?  I know its Damaged but it will do for now.  Cant find any guides to look at so just really going off pictures of others, but none describe how to actually fit them. Need to wire the Dials and switches in it before finally fixing it in.

Anyone got any info ?

Looks like your missing the back panel mate, I’ll put some pics up for you tomorrow as the dash on the project is in bits.

Fantastic Mate, Look forward to seeing them.

Also download the 90 or 110 parts book from retroanaconda's Web pages, The interior trim section starting at page 911 to 915 will give you a pretty good idea of what part goes where 

Thanks will have a look.

I’m gathering that you know what the big black plate looks like, but here’s a few pics how it goes together, any pictures or questions you have or would like just ask dash is on the floor in bits so not a problem,

on the plate you’ll see the square holes 5 I think for these

then binnacle goes on like this with big screws

hope this helps, the black plate has lots of holes square and round for various fixings for dash vents and such it’s easier to get all these fitted before you fit the plate.

Thanks Mate.

Im defiantly missing the black plate,  cant find the part number anywhere must have been superceeded or something.  Is it the full length of the dash ?

Cheers will have to find correct part number as nothings coming up on the usual  places.

He did not have fuel kneck  but ordered a Hazard switch so got one of them too hopefully here this week.

Just chatted with them and this is there Reply.

 Hello Kevin,

Thank you for your enquiry.

Unfortunately MXC8574 is now fully obsolete from all suppliers, I have carried out a Europe wide search and there are no dealers anywhere showing stock of this part.

No need to buy new, there will be plenty available second hand. I’ve got at least one surplus one stored away, unfortunately I can’t get to it for a little while yet.

There should be Mate. Ive emailed Breakers Im stuck really now as cant really go any further with wiring until this is in place. Have to make a start on my Fuel Filler if one does not come up.
