Be gentle its an EL chaser after all, so just be careful with the EL chaser cluster from the EL chaser. El chaser clusters are hard to come by as they are from the EL chaser. Nobody without an option 20 has these, cause its a chaser.

FFS man, use a ford to remove the needles from your EL CHASER! Did I mention EL CHASER enough times?

Seriously, the best way to pull gauge needles off is with a fork as DCtodd said. Just be careful and note where the needles were pointing before starting, take photos if necessary.

Be thankful you're not attempting this on a N15 Pulsar. If you pull the needles off, it completely fooks the gauge. I had to get a new cluster and 'adjust' the odometer to match the old one.

As I said, note where the original needles were pointing and stick the new ones back on the same. should be right.
