1992 & 1993 are the same and 1994 & 1995 are the same.
The below images should let you find the wires to swap.

The key as stated above by Sub is that the 1992 and 1993 clusters are interchangeable and the 1994 and 1995 clusters are also interchangeable but you CANT interchange a 92-93 with a 94-95. 1996 and up switched to OBD II so these wont work on any 1992 - 1995 OBD I system.

I did the tach cluster swap on my 1995 F150 with that of a 1994 F150. I noticed that the needles and guages though looked the same, once taken apart and out of the cluster casing were designed very differently.

The temp gauge on the 94 stays where it is or even rises a hair when the truck is shut off where as the one in my 1995 cluster would drop down to 0 when the truck was powered off. Another difference with the same gauge that I noticed was the 1994 needle had to be pried off where as the 1995 needle came right off, the way they were designed was very different.

One of these days I will put together a nice article with pictures of my cluster swap... stay tuned!

A little treat:





FYI I sent back those digital gauges and went with analog autometers, havent installed them yet.

I have been looking for the wiring changes to install a f150 1993 cluster w/tach in my 1995 F150.
Noticed there were some photos on "subford" reply but unable to view. I have schematics for 1993 and 1996 and think I need to reroute 4 wires. I plan to Change the 93 cluster wiring and leave the truck connector stock.

Yeah, that's kinda why we like to have members upload to our gallery. This is a good example. When something happens with the photos from another "source", that are inserted into a post, we don't get to see or have that wonderful info to share with everyone.

Well, since you have the schematics, and you've figured it's just 4 wires to reroute, everything should hopefully work out. Take pics and post em up!
