Idiot Cluster to Tach Option
If you have an idiot cluster here is an option to make it a tach


Ran across this and thought I would share


73 Grandé
351C 2v
Now 4v Carb/Cam/headers/T5

Gasoline is for washing parts.
Alcohol is for drinking.
Nitomethane is for racing!

Yup, he is also a member on this forum by the way.
I have one of those tach conversions and it is just splendid. The only option worth considering in my opinion.

Check out my video:

+1. I recommend RCC as well.
I hate to say it, but RCC does good work. He does take away business from me...but that's ok. There's room for both of us.

Let me check your shorts!

RCC has done some great work for me... I would highly recommend his services. Midlife has also been very helpful to our forum members.

Plus Bob is a very nice person with a very easy contact.
M7123S: 1971-1973 Ford Mustang 8000 RPM will be the next upgrade I want to make on my car.
+2. Thumbs up for both RCC and Midlife. They are good people to work with and bring integrity to the business.

Thank You!

He fixed my factory tach for me. Did a great job and was very helpful in my follow up questions.

Dude, I have been pounding my head looking at OEM tach clusters, aftermarket tacks, digital gauges, blah, blah, blah and couldn't settle anything either because of appearance or price. Then, the sky's parted and I could hear angel's singing. You nailed it with this tach. I'm still building my capital fund and gathering pieces but without a doubt when I send the ball rolling on my car this is one for the must have list! I'm oddly am into the idiot light + tach thing. It's not OEM but it is so Mustang, and I get to keep my little red horse!
I drive my car a lot, it is our second car at this point. I need to do some modernizing of my interior. I need to get gauges that work all the time and are accurate. My plan is to sell my black full console, buy this console:


I've already bought a new center bezel dash to remove center gauges and I'm going with one of these gauge clusters:





I really love this one:


I've also have been looking at GPS speedometers. We'll see, either way I'm going with a modern gauge cluster. You can't go wrong going with Bob at RCC.
