Subford,
the 42-361 wire is a larger wire with a larger pin on it. The 95 harness does not have that larger pin for the power feed it is a smaller pin.
I could make a jumper for it, but would like to leave things factory. Plus when I found the tach 96 dash, that got me thinking about swapping everything. Unless the dash wiring is the same.

jas88,
On the 92 and up trucks, they have a square connector next to the fuse box under the hood where the harness that comes from the engine connects to. Then you have the under hood harness which has the fuse box, computer, connection, headlights, horn, etc. All trucks 90 and newer have the ICM (TFI) mounted on the drivers fender. With this newer body style truck I have had to use a black ICM instead of the 89's gray one and possibly the newer computer.

1994 up computers must have the Black ICM. The Computer and ICM must match along with the body wiring harness under the hood.
1994 and 1995 Computers are different for the transmissions diode.

mudman, you need to get the dash harness out of the 96 truck, it is different, each year has its own harness. theres a few other variables, but overall its the same info

Thanks again guys.

I looked at both 96 F-250's at the junkyard and their harnesses are both junk. Many of the wires are cut at the column and other weird locations.

Now I am not sure what I am going to do. I guess I will check other yards to see if they have a donor. I started looking at the cab to underhood harness and there are at least a few wires changed or new for some reason. I would have never thought this era truck would be such a pain in the butt to work with for swaps. If I can find the wiring schematics for the cab to underhood harness I may try repinning that connector, but then I might have issues using the 96 instrument cluster with the tach I bought.

Why not just put the 96 cluster in the 95, swap a few pins on the plugs and use the 95 dash wiring?
Other poster have put 95 clusters in a 96 and 96 clusters in 95 trucks. It is not that hard.

subford,

I would do that, if I could find the information. I have been searching for the information on this site and must be missing it. I have looked at buying Helm books, but they are either out of stock and/ or not available on line.

I guess I will continue my search.

Thanks

This thread should have most of the information in it that you would need for the cluster swap on the first page.

Here is what the project looks like. It is a little further along than the picture shows.

Thanks again everyone for the help.

Yesterday after repining the underhood harness at the engine plug so that a 95 & 96 will work. The engine fired up for the first time in 2 years. Even after all that time, the motor seems to run fine. After bleeding the new brake lines I will be able to take it for its first test drive.
