Sounds like you need to check the bulbs and punctuation.

Recommendation: in your post, name it something besides '"question" like "Question about '73 Gauge Cluster Lighting" This will bring in folks who know what you are asking about. I tend to skip over threads that have no description.

If everyone named every thread with a question "question", we'd have a pretty boring thread list!

Sounds like you need to replace a few bulbs in your cluster. They are #194, buy a pack or two of ten from your favorite auto parts store, or spring for high quality dimmable LEDs.

Easiest way to do this is to pull the entire cluster out of the dash. The hard way is from under the dash. The medium-hard way is to pull the top of the dash off and work that way.

Nothing worthwhile is ever quick, cheap or easy, those that can't do, complain

I believe there are 3 lamps to light that side of the cluster.
