Need to get at back of fuel gauge and blinker can on a 57. The two long 10-28 studs have me stumped. I am no ‘spring chicken’ and can’t get into a position to remove the nuts. Do you guys just grab the stud and screw it out of the housing? If not, what if any, is the trick to removal of the studs? Thanks.

When I removed my cluster (multiple times), I saw that the studs are firmly attached; I wouldn't even try to remove them, if I was you. I am no spring chicken either, but if you diagonally lay on your back on the driver's side floor, with your head up by the pedals, and your legs out of the car, you will be able to see to get a socket on the nuts. It really is not that difficult.
Regards, Doug
