Re: t-3 tach info

Hmmm, yer talkin' over five years ago -- beyond my memory for such a 
detail.  Grab a boring weekend and try the swap.  I remember taking the 
clock out and measuring the diameter of the main body and also the bezel 
(the decorative ring that holds the glass/plastic covering) but I don't 
remember which measurement provided useful, though I think it would be the 
main body.  I then ordered a tach that was the same (or very close).  I 
remember installation was fairly easy, but I have narrow hands and long 
fingers which are quite helpful (little known fact: German engineers, as 
can be attested to by VW owners, look very similar to the crossbreeding of 
a woodland elf and an octopus -- many slim limbs and fingers that aren't 
jointed, thus allowing movement and positioning unattainable by mere humans 

Sorry I can't be more helpful,

Would that have been the 3 1/8" tach ? I was always wondering if one of those 
would work. I have a set of late model guages also for my notch and a vdo 
tach might almost match those ( better that the early gray faced guages )
