I had a good trip to the "U-Pull-It" today.  I was looking for a Smiths
oil pressure gauge to use instead of the infernal dual gauge.  When I
entered, I asked what they charged for a single guage.  The guy said
they only sell "instrument clusters" whole.  Uh oh.  I asked how much
for a cluster.  He said $20.50. Ohhhhhh.  So, I found a '76 MGB and
yanked the oil, water, tach, speedo, fuel, and a clock.  I also decided
I'd pull the XR-700 ignition set and see what they wanted for it.  I
found a cover for the brake/clutch box, the temp sender, and a fuse
block cover on various Midgets and Triumphs.  When I got back to the
front the guy said $28.34.  I paid him quickly and noticed that he
charged me $5.50 for the ignition set with box, sensor, wiring, and
trigger.  So much for Friday the 13th.
