Does anyone know of anywhere that repairs factory tachometers? I just got one for the GP and it doesn't work. Thanks......

Google Bobs Speedometer Shop. He is located in Michigan
He restored the tach for my 70 GTO. Installed guts from an airplane tach. (new)
I will say that while the tach works ok, it did read off. I had to install a resister in line to get it to read accurately. I never contacted them about this, so im not sure the reasoning. They were nice to deal with. My electronic points conversion warned of tach problems, so I dont know where the problem was. A 10k resister solved my problem.

Thanks for the info! I will contact them and see if they can do what I need. Also, thanks for the heads up about the tach not reading correctly. I will also ask about that issue.
