Stock redline at 3500 vs 4250?

I'm looking to buy a new gauge cluster because mine has aftermarket face gauges on it. My factory cluster shows a redline at about 4250. I see some redlines at 3500. Does anyone know the difference? I'm a new F250 diesel owner and not sure about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I think the 6.0 redline is higher than the 7.3..... or at least I'd suspect that would be the reason for the different numbers

I have the 6.0 liter engine and the original face gauge have a 4250 redline. Unfortunately the orginals are damaged when the previous owner swapped them out. I've been searching and found a cluster, but it has a redline at 3500. The guy selling it claims that it came out of a 2004, and it is a diesel cluster. I then searched a bunch of 2004 6.0 liter models in the classifieds, and all the pictures show a 4250 redline.

You're looking at a 7.3 cluster for sure... the 6.0 has 1,000 more rpm's before it's redline.

Yup, just confirmed. I looked up a 7.3 liter in the classifieds and it has the 3500 redline. Thanks for the help guys! Guess I gotta keep searching for a cluster then.
