What is the best way to take out my gauge cluster assembly in my 64? It is a four speed car, so has no automatic indicator mounted on the steering column. I am talking about the bezel and clear plastic as well. Thanks in advance as always.

You may have to drop the steering column down for clearance. I can't remember exactly since I took mine out 10 years ago.
Here is a conversation that might help. There is a photo in the conversation of the four screw locations. Do not lose the
top two screws. They are unique.

Correct, you have to drop the column (2 nuts hold it up) and there are four screws that hold the cluster in place. Don’t forget to remove the speedo cable and the oil pressure line (if you’re running one) first.

just enough so you can get the cluster out without breaking or scratching anything--you'll see when you get into it.

have done it without dropping the column, but it was tricky and not worth the time trying to be super careful.

I let the steering wheel rest on the seat. You don’t have to remove anything from the lower part of the column, just the two nuts that bolt up the column to the under dash.
