Thanks Kevin, any chance you've got a pic of the whole back of the cluster?

Sorry I don't, I'll have to pull the cluster out to get a pic for you. Sounds look a good job for tomorrow!

Here's a pic of the rear of mine. It is a 6/77 build.
The black box wired into the fuel gauge circuit is a balast resistor ( I believe). The fuel gauge was faulty and the guy who fixed it, maybe 10 years ago, said the bits were NLA so this was the only option.
Works OK, maybe a more elegant solution is available now?
Hope this helps.

LX have a built in voltage regulator. An instrument repairer should be able to rewind it and get rid of that black box.

Great. I'll be getting my instruments checked soon so I'll try and get rid of that bulky regulator.
Thanks for the tips.
