I have an 84 with the clock/fuel/temp guage on the left. Can this be replaced with the better choice teach combo? Is the wiring for the tach in the dash (part of the wiring harness) if this swap is done? Will the tach simply bolt into the clocks position?

To quote a frequent poster here, "use the search, Luke".

But to answer your questions:

Yes.
Kind of... need to run a wire from the coil.
Yes.

My '84 has a tach out of an '85... which is different than later dual oil pressure sender vans ('86 - on)
