    I don't think anything but a performance car (camaro, corvette) would have a tach that reads that high. The tach face can be made to fit from late 70's early 80's camaro's, but it takes some time.

    As a matter of fact, there's a pic of my Camaro tach in a truck cluster here:

    I know someone on here had a tach face printed up that changed the RPM, but all the truck ones I've seen are pretty low RPM.

    I have a 7K tach but it was a 5k tach that was recalibrated by Necormancer on the 67-72 site.

    As you can see it does not have the fuel gauge in it though. I did see a post recently with the one you are talking about. Stoopid question did you PM them to see how they did it:D .

    It was aboot $40 plus shipping both ways. Someone said they did not have good luck contacting him a while back. Greg72 had a thread about it a while ago.
