Has anyone converted their 1965-style gauge cluster to the 1966 gauges?
Here's what I have done so far, and I have run into a little snag:
1966 under dash harness
1965 Alternator harness with gauges
1965 Headlamp harness with gauges
1966 Gauge feed harness
1966 Gauge Cluster
Under dash loom
Underdash, everything is connected and there is only 1 wire that doesn't have a home. Here's the thread for that wire: 1966 Mystery Solod White Wire
Gauge Feed Harness
At the Solenoid, there is 1 wire that I think
is supposed to connect to the headlamp harness, but the 1965 headlamp harness doesn't have the connection. Here's the thread for that wire: Another wire without a home
Alternator Harness: 1965 with gauges VS 1966
Then there is the alternator harness. There is a Alt harness for 1965 with gauges, and there is an alternator harness for 1966. Since there are two harnesses, you would think there would be some difference between the two. They both look exactly the same and have the same number of wires, and even the wire colors are the same. Check it out.
Here's a 1965-with-gauges alternator harness:
and here is the 1966 alt harness:
I don't see a difference, but there must be one since there is a different harness for each year. Does anyone know what the difference between the two harnesses is?

Also, has anyone done this conversion? Please post any comments/suggestions/learnings you would like to share. This is my first conversion and it isn't as straight-forward as I had hoped it would be!
