    i just swapped a 93 LS motor into my rex and did an OBD1 conversion, it starts and runs fine. i have a couple problems though.. my tach, fuel gauge, and temp gauge aren't working, any suggestions?

    You might want to check the connections in the rear of the cluster. Maybe you didn't connect them tightly...?

    the plugs to the back of the cluster are fine, as well as the plugs by the fuse box... could not having a sensor hooked up cause it? i only have one that isn't connected and its this:

    does anyone know what its for? the book for the rex says block thermosensor but the book for the integra doesn't have that sensor listed...

    Looks to be for the Evap purge solenoid on fire wall or to vetc pressure switch..

    On my 90 crx on the back of the cluster left plug, left side second wire is key on+12 other then that idk.

    Check the fuse under the dash? Mine did that right after my swap and had me stumped for a little while.. It's a shot..

    Do you have the OBD1 dizzy? That could make your tach not work.

    i did an obd0 to obd1 conversion so i am using the obd1 distributor... which fuse powers the cluster, or which fuse did you replace? i thought there was only one fuse that went to the cluster and it was for the lights

    I don't know, just start looking through the fuses, it doesn't take long.
