    Hey everyone, So I've got a 1989 Mustang LX that I just dropped a 5.0 HO into. AOD transmission and all of that. Just your basic 5.0. It still has the factory instrument cluster in it. The thing runs and drives fine, however my speedometer and tachometer are way out of wack. Plus my...

    I have a 70 mach 1. Right now there is a big bulky aftermarket tach right by the steering wheel. Ide really like to change my guages over to the indash tach set up but for the life of me I cant seem to find an indash tach I can buy anywhere. I contemplated putting a hood tach on but I cant...

    I just want to have an idea of what the problem might be and possibly a ballpark on how much it's going to cost me before I bring it to the dealer. It started a while ago but notice it more recently. I don't always floor the gas pedal, but noticed this problem on the highway. I can be going at...

    so for the longest time ive been wondering what the arrow pointing upwards right underneath the "4" on the tachometer does. ive never seen it light up or do anything so im wondering what it does? my guess is that it is to tell you when to shift when racing but ive never seen it light up or...

    I have a 1966 a-code with an original rally pac tach and clock. Last instrument I need to get working properly is the tach. for what ever reason, it is reading VERY high. at idle it starts at 4500-5000rpm when its running at about 600-700 in reality. the needle goes up if you rev it up, so its...

    I am purchasing a 69 mustang and it has had a tach previously. It doesn't come with the instrument cluster so im using a instrument cluster from a 69 without a tach. Is it possible to just plug in the connecter ad speedo cable and e good or do I need to change the whole underdash wiring harness?

    My tach was the first to go, then fuel guage, then temperature guage, and my speedometor gets a mind of its own every once in a while, so i imagine its not gonna be long before that goes too. I've met at least 3 other people who have said their fuel guage does not work in their 2005... can...

    Just bought my uncles 1996 Mustang Cobra SVT from him the other day. He drove it for a while, but then bought another car and didn't drive the Cobra much. Now i own it. The car did sit for a couple years under a car cover with very little use. Anyways, the Tachometer did work last anyone can...

    Installed a new MSD Dist for my '89 351 408 with a new coil and now the tach is jumping. 1992 302 computer still. Know why and how to fix this problem?

    Hey guys....I am looking for an original tach that was on my 68 coupe....It wasnt a traditional looking tach....and sadly was lost sometime during the restoration of the car.... It didnt go in a circle as most gauges do....the numbers were spread across left to right like the old school...

    Hey there! I'm a proud new owner of a 5-speed Manual Transmission 1996 Mustang! It's my first car, and its been great with it so far, although it needs its fixes. Right now I am working on the tachometer and odometer. The former was working well until recently, the latter simply stopped...

    Hi there! :) Our 2005 V6 with 90K miles has a tachometer that works (well it moves) initially upon acceleration although I know it is not accurate. Then when cruising along, it will just drop to zero and stay there. Intermittently, it will begin to work again however very low of the actual...

    I am in the process of installing a Rally Pak on a '65 GT clone. The engine ignition system has been completely updated with an MSD Series-5 ignition (box, coil, distributer). MSD told me I needed a "trigger" to make the tach in the Rally Pak work, so I got one of those too. So now I have...

    I have an original 1968 fastback with a 289. The interior is all-original, black, however the water temp gauge does not work, and there is no tach. Does someone sell these original gauges or original looking gauges in a group or separately? I saw some of the small tachs that look like the...

    I just bought a Phantom 5" Autometer tach and I'm in the process of installing it. So far I've routed the green wire to the coil, and found a ground for the black wire underneath the dash. Now comes the difficult part. I need help finding a 12v ignition power source for the red wire, and I need...
