    I'm looking for a tach and a printed circuit for my gauge cluster, anybody got either? I'm not terribly worried about the tach but I probably need to look at a printed circuit.

    I have a tach circuit back home, I can take some pictures for you tomorrow if that would help. I rewired my cluster using it as a template and it turned out alright, but it does take patience.

    I'm not looking for a OEM tach and circuit just a regular old circuit and a tack to sit up on the dash, I have a cluster with a tach, just my dad and I are uncertain about who will use it.

    I'm alittle confused why you would need a printed circuit for an aftermarket tach, to my knowledge you only need 3 wires. Power on key turn, ground, and the signal wire to distributor.

    I see why you're confused, I'm looking for an after market tach along with a OEM gauge cluster printed circuit. A tach to sit on the dash and a circuit so that my gauges work.

    What year printed circuit are you looking for? There are differences so you need to make sure you get the right one for the cluster.

    Any specs you are looking for with the tach?

    Tach

    I take it that you have not found a tach yet. I have several, from used inexpensive to brand new Autometer Monster. Email me if you're interested and I can send pics, details: [email protected]. Thanks, Bob.

    Sorry about the delay I haven't been on here to much. Im not sure the year of the cluster. It was put in the truck at some point and time. The truck itself is a 79

    Ammeter or Voltmeter?
    Mechanical or electric oil pressure?

    I have a couple of them. One is from my '79 before I put the tach in.

    Oh no I'm meaning for a tach to sit up on the dash and just a printed circuit for the back of my cluster. I'm not putting the tach in the cluster
