So I picked up a \"later\" tach dash today... and I'm wondering what year it actually is. The truck was an '87, but various parts inside the truck had been swapped, and there was no factory tach wiring I could find, so I'm not sure what year truck the tach came out of. I know there was/is a thought that '81 was the last tach year, but from doing a search on this board, I noticed post-'81 trucks being parted/sold with factory tachs as well. Just wondering what anyyone elses look like thta are that vintage. This one is definitely the "later" font/script(?), I think it was used prior to '81 ('79?) but definitely the same font/script used up until '91. I've got an earlier (early-mid 70's) tach, and that certainly doesn't have the later font/script this one has. Since I don't know the history, and the plastic lens was removed, I can't say for certain the rest of this cluster hasn't been messed with either. This one is odd, because it has no "red" or "yellowline" to it, it's solid white. My dad has a similar year tach as well, but it's got a yellow/redline. This isn't one of the industrial truck tach's from C60 or whatever trucks, and it's definitely a gas version, having the connector on back marked "ground/bat/coil" Got a decent deal on it, but the housing is broken and its been in the weather. Popped the tach out of it, unfortunately this tach isn't labeled 6 or 8 cylinder, so until I plug it in, I won't know if it works or is the for a V8 or 6. Interesting other discovery, apparently my dads '81 (or so) tach is a 6 cylinder model, we though his gearvendors OD just wasn't enough, but its actually reading about 25% faster than the engine can possibly be turning. Not sure if his is marked on the back if its a 6 or 8 cylinder tach, but I've seen that stamp on Camaro tachs.
