Received Cluster PC Board to put new bulbs in.

It had been soldered by someone, it was beyond my ability to repair.

Took to Southern Speedometer and he said "wow" I will do my best.

He saved it but it cost $175.00 to repair.

Point is "Be careful" when soldering. Hairline traces break/burn easily.

1 and 2 Not good soldering.
3. Southern Speedometer bench.
4. Repair
5. Repair including wire to complete circuit.

Wished you had called me on that Dick, I have repaired at least a handful with the same issue. It's a little tricky but it can be be done. Glad he's back on the road but yes, not all soldering irons are created equal and can cause issues.

I know it’s really hard to look at, but repairable. It takes skill and patience to fix circuit boards that have been hacked... It’s a small group that has the experience to work with wire-wrap wire to rebuild traces......

In the end, the cluster was made serviceable again. That’s what counts....

Mike
