  1. I agree, especially because I want to keep the aging of the dial;
  2. as electronic engineer, I have a smal low frequency generator and I will have a look by myself prior to send it anywhere; after all, maybe I can fix it! I have looked around in tach repair shop and they charge around 150$ to fix it! does it worth it?? cheaper to buy a new one and swap over the dials (like Ed does in "wheeler dealer") in order to keep the aging ; but first of all I have to take it of from dash board and I think I will do it next week; thanks anyway for help;
  3. I will avoid to make it repair in the US; the shipping costs way out and return will be more expansive than a brand new tach! so either I find a local store able to repair my tach, or I buy a new one; (by the way, I have a MSD booster in case of need) my HEI is a Pertronix Flame Thrower; my real problem is that I wrote to both Pertronix and Ames and Pertronix says I should check with tach manufacturer and Ames says I should check with HEI manufacturer for compatibility! ping pong match: 1/1 I think I'm gonna search for a local repair!!
  4. I found this at fair price, but apparently not compatible with my HEI distributor; so what can I fit for replacement ? if you have a link, I'll be happy!...
  5. Hi Frosty, nop, really not in their catalog, I suppose they don't sell it anymore; even on ebay, I can't find anything, however, the keyword "tachometer movement" should be clear enough! if by chance you hear anything about this item, just shout!
  6. HI Frosty, I had already checked with NPD, AMES, Summit and The Part Place; so just left Year one, and OPGI! I keep on searching on these two ones!
  7. hi all, new on this forum and recent owner of a 65 GTO ! my tach is dead and I read in a very interesting article from "hot rod" site, that Jim McGowan repair his tach with a new movement, very convenient solution for me, since I don't have to worry about diameter! he says that it's very easy to find on online stores this product, but to be honnest, after several hours of research, I've not found nothing; so can anyone tell me where I can buy this bit?? thanks for your help
