Burned Out Part Of Cluster

Good days bad days.  I diagnosed the cluster and tach but I saw some smoke as I ran the car with the cluster out.  I turned off immediately but too late I guess. Looks like I burned out the oil light and one of the wires was shorting out.

 

Anyone have an extra laying around looking to sell or where to buy for a 1976??? Son't know if the part has changed over the years.

P/N is 62111350145 and It is still available. ECS tuning shows it for $28.69. I had to replace mine  for a similar problem last year. Either you shorted across some of the leads, or the coating over the printed circuits was wearing allowing oxidation. Once it starts to oxidize and the resistance rises, it can heat and then catastrophically fail.

...but be careful with the temp and fuel gauges. The attachment system is "weird" to say the least. I accidentally pulled out the mounting stud from the temp gauge, which is crimped in, and then had no end of trouble to get the assembly to stay where it's supposed to be afterwards.
