Wrap a proper size , wide blade screwdriver with some electrical tape so you don't mar the bezel, push in the slot and pull the clock out. Those three instruments are easy.

I use a feeler gauge. Get the thickest blade, 0.030" and push up into the slot.

That's a great idea. You basically push straight up gently. Those 3 gauges are retained with clips made of spring steel. Your pushing them in to make the assembly smaller so it will pull out. So it just snaps back in when installing, no tools. Smart design IMO.

That is true. Unlike the 1965 3 gauges. To get those out I think you first remove the front headlight bezel then the tail lights and after another 1352 or so dismantling jobs you can finally reach the screws to pull out the clock!! Ask me how I know.......
