Looking for some photos.
I was wondering how the Monte dash looks and would like to know how hard of a swap it would be.
I like the round gauges.
Thanks.

Having just did the swap on my Classic. It's not difficult, just time consuming.

You do have to swap some of the dash plug locations around, but a small nail works well for releasing the catches on the wire.

It took me a weekend to swap it around.

What helped me was to look at the back of your stock sweep cluster, make a list of what wire goes to where, and then do the same on the gauge cluster.

Don't forget to mention that, if you want to go with the full needle gauges (i.e. tach, volts/amps, oil, etc.) instead of just the std round warning lights on most Montes, there will be some additional wiring changes and a couple switches that will need to be replaced...right?

There is a "sticky" thread in the tech section here for rewiring round idiot lights to gauges but I have not seen one for sweep to gauges but could be mistaken. I have the sweep style harness from the Malibu but won't be doing the re-wire for a while yet. Would be nice if someone that has an original unmodified Tach/Gauges harness could post a pic of the connector that plugs into the gauge pod showing the wire locations. The diagrams in my Haynes manual are kind of sketchy on the subject. I think to really know for sure you need a service manual for the year of the car, so I don't want to guess.

kinda hard to post a pic while still in car. but when the interior comes out of my 73 monte,i will get pics. was going to take it out,but with new house and all i need to wait.
i can take a pic of a round idiot light NON gauge plug to see if it matches the sweep gauge plug. it would be so nice is the sweep can just be pulled and the round go in.i've only had one set of sweeps and never compared the 2.
