Replaced instrument cluster with new used unit (old cluster had intermittent problems with gauges).
Replaced both odometer gears w/in cluster.**
Replaced 4 main back light bulbs along with 2 bulbs for clock/info display.
Swapped several indicator bulbs over from the old cluster.

** When removing face plate on turbo 850's, first remove the 8mm nut securing the boost gauge to the back of the cluster.

Discovered that I swapped in a cluster from a later year 850. Speedometer does not work, the transmission arrow is flashing, and the ABS light is on. ::sigh::

Completely loosened driver side e-brake shoes due to them binding up and not releasing correctly when I released the e-brake lever.
