you should be able to pick up an xf-spac dash from the wreckers for under $100

this will give you speedo, tacho, AS well as digital oil, volts, fuel and temp displays.

make sure you get the oil pressure sender as well , it just replaces where your oil pressure switch was and uses the same wire. (new sender around the $70 mark....)

Re: tacho on xf ute

I have changed my XF GL cluster to the Digital cluster and I tried removing the old Oil sender , maan what kind of tool can use to get it off.. its some kind of 'round' thing that if it wasnt on so tight i could turn it with my hands,

the new pressure sender has a standard bolt fitting on it- its just getting the old one off

XG cluster's do fit, but are a lot more piss farting around... believe me, I'm half way through doing mine. Just go an XF Spac cluster. They plug straight in.
