78 Ford 3600 Diesel.

Tried twice, once was this site, to get a battery tray for the tractor(long one). Both weren't even close. Hole for mounting pin was too small and the support bracket won't allow the tray to seat properly and line up with the pin. Does anybody know of a vendor that sells something that fits?

Also need an instrument cluster. This is what mine looks like, I know I need the voltage stabilizer but all I've seen have four prongs on the stabilizer and as mine shows I have a double plus one. Other than insuring I have a counter clockwise needle will most of the aftermarket wire up?

Can't help with the battery tray but I put a eBay aftermarket cluster in my 3600 and it worked fine. The replacements have a box that looks like a voltage stabilizer but all it really is is a junction box. The meters in the aftermarkets do not need it.

Only issue I had was the tach cable hitting the lip on the fuel tank and not letting the cluster go in far enough. I just bent the lip on the tank over a bit to clear the cable.

Forgot to mention.. My 3000 has a battery tray that was made by a previous owner out of sheet metal. He used the old mounting bracket and welded it to a new tray. It works fine.
