49 f1 instrument cluster mounting

What do the fasteners look like that mount the cluster into the dash?

They are metal stand-offs with 10-32 machine screw studs, and are spot welded to the backside of the dash.

The mounting holes in the cluster are about 1/4" in diameter, way larger then 10-32, are there rubber bushings or special nuts?

Mixer man, you are right, different year, same studs though but the hole in the cluster is the size of the nut. Something is missing, ie a washer or bushing.

Here is the backside of my panel before I refurbished it. The gauge studs are #10 for reference. There were no bushings or isolators of any kind. It was a ridgid attachment with lock washers and nuts.
