I am going to have a decal made for the tach to double the range to 6,000 RPM in 1958 Plymouth font. I have a .5 ratio adapter to slow down the distributor output. Marc.

Tach Upgrade 3K to 6K:













I still need to touch up the paint and needle, but you get the idea. Can anyone guess where the newer tach face came from? Marc.

Looks like they are a vacuum gauge face in there somewhere Hee! Hee! I see 6 grand on my tack two times every time I go down the quarter mile. First and second gear, I am only running 391 gears so I only tack out about 5200 at the end of the quarter mile. Smile

I think the original tach is from a 1961 or later dodge diesel truck. It only went to 3000 rpm and had an hour meter. Test fit Maybe... Marc.















'Dodge' you better get out of the way!

The Tach face came from a 1958 or so Vette. I found this speedo on Epay!




Now I need some new numbers and a 160 mph face plate!

The DODGE dash plate looks fantastic.......Is it from a PLODGE? I thought Dodge dash's were different to our 57/58 Plymouths? Love the forward look ensign at the bottom, really catches the eye!

Yes, it's from a Canadian 1957 dodge. A guy on FL.net had it for sale. Marc

Nope. I think John took them off of a 1959 Imperial. I drilled out the cups from the main speaker/ vent surround. It says white & Desoto on the back too Marc.
