  Hmmmn...must just be stuck..shouldn't be anythiing else holding it 
in....but before you pull the cluster out (and it won't come very far out at 
that) reach behind the dash and put a little "wiggle" on the connections, 
they are a "snap" type fit, not screwed on.  My '59 loves to work loose.

  Also, check the wiring at the sending unit too...

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
