Depends on whether it was corrected. Does your speedo read fast or slow?

Change a rear end gear you must change the gear at the end of your speedo cable to match what you have. Changing tire size can do this as well (make the speedo off).

Looks great.  Where'd you score those?
 
Did you figure out your rear end ratio yet?

Got them from an fellow Fairlane Club of America member. Have not gotten to the rear end things yet-that is not critical, but I will get to it, maybe next year.

I just replaced a few bulbs on the car, and I was wondering about the trunk one, is there a mercury switch involved in that circuit?

Was trying to replace more bulbs-what an ass pain, how do you change the bulb on the radio and the air selector,  anyone have any tips?

I was also trying to find a way to get my stock oil pressure gauge to work. See the pics of what I have now, do I need a new sender with an electrical hook as opposed to an liquid hook up? This is what I have now.

what is this thing?

And where do I find the temp sender?

The trunk light socket has a mercury switch that is built into the trunk light socket.

The temp sensor is probably located at the top of the water pump such as in between the red circle in the picture below. It might also be located at the top front of the engine block below the thermostat housing near the heater hose such as the white arrow points to in the picture below.

I have never seen a oil pressure liquid hose on a '72 like you have. On other '72 torinos if you have a standard/stock oil pressure warning light then there is a sensor/switch that connects by a wire with a connector to the oil pressure light near your speedometer.
If you have the performance instrument cluster option (oil, temp, alternator, fuel, clock and tachometer gauges) then there is an oil pressure sending unit that connects to the oil pressure gauge by a small wire with a connector that connects to the instrument cluster. Both types of oil pressure sensor/switch and sending unit are screwed into the top rear of the engine block where your liquid hose is connected to on your engine.

The stock/standard oil pressure sensor/switch and the performance instrument cluster option oil pressure sending unit have different part numbers.

the lower pic is the oil sender for a gauge! the upper pic is for a idiot light!
having a tube for the oil is an aftermarket mechanical oil gauge
