Rocketman's drop in tachometer - installed!
#1
Just installed my drop in idiot light tacho from "Rocketman's Classic Cougar Innovations" and I've got to say it's the ducks guts (Australian expression meaning awesome!).

Looks totally natural installed and the three wire hook-up was very simple. There is the very slightest mismatch in the white graphic between the new tacho face and the speedo face, but that's only because the speedo has faded over 40 years. The new black face on the tacho matches the black on the speedo almost perfectly. Also the tacho pointer is wider than the speedo pointer, but that's pretty unnoticeable too. Only problem I had was that when I took the car out on the road to test the tacho out it started raining and I had only washed the car yesterday....

I especially like the idea of sending in ones own core (idiot light) and having it modified. I have a core that I took out of my Grandé when I substituted the tach from a Mach I into it...I think I will send the core in and have it doneSmile.

THANKS for the post on your experience with the product!

Do the RIGHT thing.

My mustang is named Beth.

As in

Beth I hear you calling and I'll fix you right this time.
but both the kids need braces and I just can't spare a dime.
Just a few more paychecks and I'll get right back to you.
Oh Beth what can I do? Beth what can I do?

Got no idea how "the ducks guts" became a term of expression here meaning something was great, maybe our early settlers considered the duck guts as the tenderest and tastiest part of the bird Huh Probably originated as a rhyming Australian slang nonsense terminology in a similar vein to something being called "the bees knees" in the US.

Used here in Mad Max to describe the XB Interceptor (at the 1:00 mark - video embedding not allowed so click on the video to watch it on the youtube site):

LOL yeah I don't understand the "bee's knees" reference either.
