can you install the tach in the original gauge cluster. just take out the gas gauge or do you need some other piece in the back to hold the tach in.

If I remember right, the clock protrudes out the back of the carrier so you would have to modify the ones that have the fuel gauge as well as purchase the schematic for the electrics.

I think what he meant was that you need the circuit board for the back. The clock has a different circuit board than the standard cluster. If the clock is already in the housing than it is as simple as unscrewing the gas gauge and circuit board and replacing it with the new. You will need a tach input as well as a voltage source for the clock as well.

68rs If you go to electrical and wiring and look for a post dated 4-29-01 authored by me you will get all the info you need to install your gauge cluster without buying a new harness for the dash. I just did it to my 69. It isn't that hard, with the help of this site, all things are possible! If its not there anymore. let me know and I will scan it and e-mail it to you....I printed it out for futher referance.

68rs, you can still download the scmatic from the T jones on 6-9-01 Just make sure you study the wiring under your dash very very carefully! A little bit of time spent on your back on the floor of your car looking around the under side of your dash will be time well spent, believe me. I never wired anything on a car before, Its mostly just common sense. If you hit a snag just hop on this site and someone will help you. I used a wire connector called posi lock and they are really nice. I got mine at Auto Zone. If you study the existing wiring and read the posts and follow the advice the guys gave me you can,t go wrong. Don't be in a hurry. If for some reason you can't download the scmatic give me your e-mail address and I'll send it.

68rs-conv, Did you get your tach setup yet? When you do please post your findings on quality ect. I am thinking about one just for the fact I would think they are more accurate than the original ones. But I am also wondering how they look appearance wise compared to a original

Hey guys, I ordered 5 of the 68 tic-toc-tachs last week. I hope to get em soon! I do have thr 67 and 69 tachs! I have sold a few of each and my customers seem to be VERY happy! They look just like the orig. which is always a plus and they are gauranteed to work which is a BIG BIG plus. We have also ordered the console gauge packages, waiting for those too. The reproduction OER parts are great, I sell A LOT and haven't had ONE return yet...I also ordered the COPO 140 MPH speedo's for the 69...These parts aren't for the hard core numbers matching guys..I think they are nice for those who want to add a little something extra to their cars for themselves as well as onlookers. If any of you are looking for these parts drop me an Email and I can get ya on my waiting list, there seem to be SEVERAL people wanting the 68 tach's....I can't wait to get em in..

Please post when someone actually has one of these in their hands. I called Classic Industries today and the guy I talked to said there were none in stock and there was no date as to when they would be in stock. He said he could put me on a huge waiting list and didn't figure he would have any for around six months. I passed. While I have the money I would like to pick one up.
quickchevy-why do you say they are not for the numbers matching guys? Are they not just like the original as stated? If anyone gets one of these or find a place that has them in stock please post. The money was a birthday present and I want to spend it before I have to spend it on bills or something stupid. I won't be able to save up the money once I spend it.
