Futura is low series also, mid series is Fairmont, high is fairlane. You need to replace the oil pressure switch with a sender so that the oil gauge works, you will also need to add a resistor to the cluster so that the backlight on the LCD works when the lights are on. I think there is also an issue with the coolant sensor and washer level, the doco will point you in the right direction.

XR is a mid series cluster, however you dont need the resistor thingy added.
