If you are able to bring some to Carlisle, I'd take mine that way for sure. It'd save me big money crossing the border.

Been flat out with work and doing that sort of stuff you need to do around home with Winter approaching.  Hoping to have it close to finished by the end of the coming week. Kocked out a bit tonight:

On a somewhat related subject.  If some of the dash lights are burnt out would that effect anything else?  I mean, if a bulb isn't working could it/would it potentially result in an incomplete circuit thereby preventing other lights or components, i.e., temp, oil pressure, or amper gauge, from working?  I'm probably going to go with the LED upgrades, if you think they'll work, with the circuit board.

The impedance of the globe elements will not effect the operation of any of the other elements on the circuit.

Or in other words if one or more bulbs were blown(open circuit) or one of more bulbs were replaced with LEDs(below standard current draw) the operation of the gauges and other warning lamps will not be affected.

However, the bit I cannot see by looking at the circuit is where the power for the instrument illumination comes from. If it is like the Australian Fords of the same period there will be a facility to dim the lighting and that dimmer is a rheostat.  Replacement LEDs typically draw much less current than the original incandescent bulb so what you may find is that the dimmer does not work like it did because the load is significantly less than what the dimmer is designed for.

Did the Torino come with a dimmer for the instrument illumination?

Yes instrument lamp rheo is built into the headlamp switch,

makes sense that the dimmer may not be calibrated to load with LED's

maybe a ballast?
