The dash and instruments gets power direct from the battery connection at the starter solenoid. The wire will be on the same terminal at the solenoid. Look at the starter area for a fusible link. Will look like a fuse soldered in the wire. The main wire has to go to the fuse panel, then to the dash. Use a voltmeter or test light , starting at the starter solenoid , and follow the voltage to the fuse panel, looking for where power has been lost.
