need help with the screws that hold the gauge cluster in. took out gauge cluster to repair tach. now I am questioning which screws to put back in. the ones I thought were correct are about 3/4 socket cap screws, but I seem to think that they were hex head. Assembly manual does not have good pic.

Hex head screws hold the cluster to the dash.
The Allen head (socket cap)screws hold the bezel to the dash.
(The same ones which hold an automatic shifter bezel to the console.)

ok thanks. that's what I thought. now to see if I can find them? I wonder about the socket cap screws though because they are shorter than my bezel screws.
