Today I decided to replace some burned out bulbs in the dash, the oil light and left turn signal. I got those switched and decided to check my work before bolting it back in. Well the bulbs I changed worked but the lights for the fuel and ALT no longer do. I changed out the bulbs on those to but nothing. What couldhave happened? I even replaced the bulb socket, but nothing. Its a 67 Dart to be specific.

If you tried it with the cluster removed from the dash, it's probably because it's not touching metal. I think it's chassis grounded through the mounting screws. Install everything completely and see if anything changes... ;)

now that its back in they all light up except for the temp guage one. It will sometimes light and other times not. If I jiggle it around it will or if I hit the left turn signal it will come on. What can this be dirty connection or something worse.

It still sounds like bad grounds. You might have to clean up the connections on the circuit board and/or run a ground strap from the screw that holds it in.
