1983 Mustang GT tachometer question
Good morning folks,
I want to swap gauge parts or the gauges themselves, which ever will work.
GT GAUGES work fine. The faces just aren't as crisp as my donor dash has.
Donor dash had convertible switch, and the (warning) lights on the left side had "turbo" as one of the lights.
I'm presuming this had to be a 4-cylinder donor dash.
I did a search about the tachs and all talked about the switch for the 4-6-8 cyl use. I see where the switch would go, however, it is just a hole...nothing to do the actual switching, unless disassembly is required.
I was going to just swap the face and needle, but, knowing what forcing things can do, led to the question...how do I get the tach needle off the stem?
That led to another question...will the 4 cyl tach work on an 8 cyl model. It seems like it would read either half the RPM's or probably double.
Any help is certainly appreciated. I hate to wreck perfectly good parts.
