Hey guys. I just bought a white cluster from a Sport Trac but I don't know the year. The tach I bought is for an automatic, but I have a manual. Is there a way to get it to work still? Here's some pics.

That part is super easy, the gear indicator piece pops right out, HOWEVER, Sport Trac's came with the 4.0 and according to your info you have a 3.0, meaning your tach will be off by quite a bit.

it will work fine. the piece that displays the gears pops out and you can put in your old black one after you spray paint it white and it'll look fine. the tach will also work fine. the explorers, rangers and sport tracs all have the same clusters they just look different. I have the same cluster in my truck with a 2.5 and it works fine

Cool that makes me feel a lot better. So the reverse lights won't even be related to that? And do all the plugs just swap together right?
