No Gauges! Well, the Clock Works....

So after I finished plumbing the new motor and got it fired up I now have no gauges but the clock and lights all work. I have checked: sending unit connections, engine compartment wiring, and I didn't mess with any under dash anything during the build (it worked when I started this). Also, I know I didn't mess with anything near the fuel tank or gauge and that doesn't work either. Speedo is mechanical and should be working unless I meesed up the install on the new gear.... So why don't I have any gauges? Is there a ground somewhere that I missed, that would make sense for all to go out? (clock is on a different circuit) Does the missing computer have anything to do with it, I don't think it matters, I mean, even after a nutter you still have gauges right? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Did the gauges work before the engine swap?

Check to be sure there is power on the White/Black wire going to the gauge cluster with the key ON. It provides power to all but the clock.


See if the tach works and if the BRAKE light works with the e-brake light is on as these have the same power feed as the gauge cluster.
Check the fuzes if these are non-functional.

Everything worked before the engine swap. No tach either and, uh, which light is the BRAKE light, my panel is missing.... But all fuses seem to be o.k.
