Speedometer & Tach

Post by John brown on Wed May 03, 2017 4:51 pm

Bob's Speedometer just told me mine was bad and it would cost $1000 to get it fixed so I'm looking for someone with extras that work.

What did they say was bad with it? Why would it be $1k to fix the speedometer? Bob sounds like he is just waiting to take someone's money.

Give these guys a call or e-mail. they repaired some vintage jaguar gauges for me. Very reasonable. Your not the first guy to say that Bob is very proud of his work.

I have also wondered if one of these boards wouldn't work for our cars. These guys also have a tach service.

Much was discussed on how to repair a tach on this previous thread:

Right. I saw "Bob's Speedometer" and the OP's use of the singular ("mine was bad" + "get it fixed") just got me focused on speedometer. Sloppy reading.

Tach 76

Post by S3SS on Sat May 06, 2017 2:17 pm

Tach was available in 76 although rare. It is in the owners manual and listed in Gm parts.

Here is a nice example of an original 1976 GMC Sprint SP with a factory tach.

John- Good morning- I have a correct gauge cluster from a 1975 Laguna Type S-3 with a Tachometer. But good news and bad, all gauges work correctly, but Tach face and speedometer have some surface rust spots on them. if you would like for some pictures, just let me know-Thanks and have a good Monday-Mitch
