I'd like to get one of those gauge clusters (temp, oil pressure, voltage) for my 68 442 to mount underneath the dash. I bought one from autozone or related for my other 68 and it did the job, but was a little smaller and "cheap" feeling. I had a 1972 Cutlass Supreme that had a great one but it was installed by the previous owner and I don't recall the brand. Got any recommendations?

I have Autogage #2399 for my Hurst/Olds (not yet installed). Black faced 2 5/8" water, oil, and voltmeter gauges in a chrome console. They also offer white faced gauges and black consoles. They're around $85. I had this same set in a 73 Buick and they worked/looked great.

Those look solid. I might snag a set of the #2398 cluster. Did it come with everything you needed or did you still have to go out and get lines or anything like that?

They come with everything except extra wiring. Very high quality stuff.

So what else did you need to have everything? Also, this is the first time I've had an Oldsmobile where all the original warning lights worked. Will I be able to keep that connected along with the autometer temp gauge?

Everything is just that, everything except for electrical wire and connectors. I don't know but would assume that the gauges could be wired to work with the factory idiot lights.
