No, you need one for the bigger truck as there is a 3rd line the runs down to the brake boster.

I can't say I have not had one apart for either size of truck.

Well I removed the master cylinder and its severely rusted/pitted so I've been looking for a replacement and the only one i could find with the aux port to the brake booster was a Bendix 11201 Master Cylinder. Still have to double check the bore sizes but it looks like the best choice for the bigger trucks.

Arrow Re: 196? GMC 4000 B-model

Just bought a ''big truck'' cluster. Does anyone know how to hook up the vacuum reserve gauge? I'm assuming it goes to the vacuum tank? Also where to find a tach assembly I haven't been able to find one.

The tachs come up on Ebay every now and then. Sometimes they're stupid high but just as often someone will price them about 50-75.00 shipped

I think I worded that poorly. I have the Tach gauge, but I don't have the tach cable or the camshaft take-off that's what i'm looking for. Or was that what you meant?

The vacuum gauge on the big truck cluster is for the Hydrovac brake booster so in your case if it's going to be used in a light duty truck in won't work for that purpose. You can just hook it up to manifold vacuum as a mileage minder type gauge. The tach drive parts are definitely something you're going to have to search for, I've had a few of these in the past but have sold them off to other members but hopefully someone on this site has the stuff. There is a fitting that screws to the back of the cam then attaches to the tach drive so make sure that's included. As for whoever mentioned a tach for $50-$70 you're way off unless it's just a standard Sun RC-50 which resembles the GMC/Sun RC-5A. The RC-5A has the GMC style block numerals you won't find one of these for less than $300 and most won't include the transmitter box. I've seen some real outrageous prices on these tachs recently on ebay ranging from $450-$600.

Here's a photo of what you're going need. Maybe someone parting out a big truck will have it.
