Your fuse panel should have a guide showing which fuse is which... When in doubt, start pulling and checking them one at a time.

Is it the actual dash not working or is it the light behind it not working? Very different problems. My Vista had a flaky headlight knob and sometimes you'd have to jiggle it for the dash lights to come on.

It's not a fuse, this is a common problem with International dashboards. The fix is to re-solder where the harness plugs into the circuit board. I still need to do this for my dash, which every once in a while cuts out for 5-10 minutes. So far it has always come back, which has always killed my motivation to fix it properly.

Yeah that's gonna be low on the todo list. Top speed is roughly highway speed so screw it.

From what I've seen, it's really not that difficult. You basically just have to hit each contact point with a soldering iron and add a little bit of extra solder. My fear whenever the dash goes out on me is that the temperature gauge goes as well.

Another way around the problem is to get a Bluefire adapter, which you can use to display the dash data on a tablet. Those are about $175, though, I think.

Same here. Every time I think I'm going to have to bust out the soldering iron it comes back to life and I'm spared the trouble for another day. The only thing I worry about is the temp and oil pressure.
