F650 dash mod

O.K. guys and gals, here are the final pics. I installed the 6 Carling switches, and a DPDT (on-off-on) rocker for my temp guage. After I had cut the opening to fit the 2 carling 3 switch mounts, I had about 1.5 inches of open space at the bottom that just didnt look right to me. I added a false back to the opening and then filled it with bondo. I then hit it with a 100 grit sanding block to get it all nice and level, and then finished it off with 320 grit sand. I light coat of primer, and some paint and its done.

The rocker switch you see below the main switches is a selector switch for my temp guage. Throw the switch to the left, and my guage reads my oil temp, throw it to the right and it reads my coolant temp. I added a T fitting to my HPOP resevior to accomodate both the factory EOT sensor, and the sensor that came with my guage. I also added a sensor for coolant temp in the same fashion. Before anyone asks, I had to add the T fitting to my waterpump, simply because the inside of the hex plug was chewed up, and would not come out.
sorry the nighttime pics arent that clear, cheap camera.

I still need to remount my brake controller

Ford Part number is 4C4Z-7004302-BA, It was about $60 from my local medium duty dealer.
The panels come in the dark gray color of the top half of my dash, but since I was transfering my cup thrower, and ash tray over I went ahead and painted mine to match.

Re: F650 dash mod

That is very nice. I wonder if this would work with a manual truck, with that extended part being there? I like the switch mounting, nice job.

I assume it does not come with the ashtray and the cup holder? If not, what year of ashtray will fit? My ashtray out of my 99.5 does not look like that. I do have the updated cup holder already.

Nope, wont work for the handshakers. The precut rectangular hole is used to house the push button tranny controller for the 650. there is also another small hole that is precut (under where my voltmeter is), it would be used for the parking air brakeknob. I just enlarged it to fit the guages I had. In the next month or so I will be getting some Isspros to match my pillar guages.
You're correct the cupthrower and ash tray do not come with the panel. My truck is a 99.5 so your ashtray should look like mine. All the mounting holes line up perfectly.
I only had to enlarge the large rectangular opening about 1/4 on each side to accomodate the switch housings.

Thanks for the kind words guys.
