JohnZ...Thanks for the info on the shroud. I will try that. There is a John Deere dealership 5 miles from me, so I'll pick some of that paint up. What parts in the engine compartment can I use that paint on other than the shroud? By the way, (think back) I decided on using a seperate wire from the fuse box to my Unilite distributor to supply the coil with the proper voltage thru the Mallory resister. I noticed that the factory resistance wire was glowing and smoking very badly and I felt it was unsafe and worried that it would leave my wife stranded while she was driving the Z. The Unilite performs flawlessly. Thanks for that info.
Texas67SS...thanks for your info as well. I'll give them a call. My grand-daughter (3 yrs old) broke the needle off the tach that was in my car when it was sitting on the work bench. A very nice gentleman on this board answered my ad for a tach needle replacement and he gave me a factory tach for next to nothing that he fried accidently. When I looked at it, compared to the one I removed from my car, they were the same but different. Mine was probably an early repo that must have been replaced by previous owner. Anyway, the factory one is for an SS350 model and I want to rebuild it and reface it like the 8 grand 69 Z tach. Do you think this is possible? If by any chance they can't do it, anybody have an 8 grand tach face for sale or know of anyone that re-screens?
