I'd try the 84-89 section. There are some threads out there (on Yotatech in the '84-85 section for example) on this swap. If you have a 22RE, everything should work. I guess if you've got a 22R, you do need to run a tach wire. My green plug had nothing coming out of it, so I'm not sure what you've got going on. I thought that plug was there to hook up an rpm guage for setting timing and trouble shooting problems and all that, so it's weird that it would have something plugged into it.

Oops! In my haste I didn't notice this was 79-83. Thanks, will do.

Just FYI if you install the oil pressure gauge on a non-sr5 model I was told you need swap the sending unit too.

HEY EVERYONE!!!! Listen,,, This guy has the pins right OK> BUT if you need it simplified for u then do this look at his chart the pin number forget the wire colors k. then look at the gauge panel u pulled there will be pin numbers on the back where the plugs go k. now take the non SR5 pin numbers (which I'm assuming your replacing the standard no tachometer cluster with the SR5 cluster.) and put them into the SR5 pin number slots on your existing plugs every thing is there except the tachometer wire that's the one u have to run. this chart is for 82-83 for sure i just did it and everything worked perfect thanks to this

Anyone have any direction on installing an 82 sr5 cluster with 85 efi dash harness? Just did my efi swap and I'd like to put my dash back together but I have the 85 cluster in the way

My truck is an 81
I don't gas my toy after midnight, I treat it like a Mogwai
Cuz it will turn into a gremlin and run over kids, women and men. VRRRRN! VRRN!
