I purchased a 1995 Chevy K1500 Silverado 5.7 V8 350 Z71 as a project a couple months back. I noticed that the lights and a couple of the gauges don't work on the cluster. The Tach and Speedometer work, the odometer and temp. gauge don't. The rest I am unsure of. When I took the instrument cluster out, I noticed that it came out of a 97' C/K 1500 Truck. I've heard that the 95's were a switchover year and the only year that had the one specific cluster. My question is will the 97 cluster work if I got the parts to fix it, or will I need to go ahead and find one for the 95? My guess would be to find one that came off another 95 since it was a TBI engine and the 97's had the Vortec engines. I just want to be sure before I spend money on a whole cluster. Help will be appreciated! Thanks!

So I recently bought a 1992 k1500 with a small block 350 and the engine is from an older truck I believe, the whole wiring has been tampered with and the distributor doesn't get and power from the original plug in so someone before me hotwired the entire truck and the key only gives power to the dash and what not, just not the starter or solenoid if it has one? I'm completely new to all this and I was hoping it would be easy when I bought the truck but I'm only 17.
