It's universal across the line for 5Ks of that vintage.
You already noticed all the "extra" lamp holders
available, very few gas engines need that glowplug
light on the cluster too.......<gr>
The upshift indicator on just about all the manual tranny
5Ks has been removed (it's a switch that used to go onto
the vacuum lines behind the distributor). The only thing
it was ever good for was to cause vacuum leaks, and
many were removed by dealers when the car was new,
people found it annoying.
It's just one of those things you never notice, unless
you decide to notice it. You could probably just
dab some black paint on it if it really bothers you.
