Had a great time meeting Jon and talking with Chad at Infineon despite the rain out.  Sunday I was at a swap meet and spied a Jones-Motorola Tach, cable drive style with cable, in fairly nice condition amongst a bunch of non-race items so I asked the guy the proverbial "How much?" expecting something insane.  After a bit haggling I walked away with it for $55.  I'll post some photos when I'm not so busy...last week of school!

Mike, it was a real pleasure to meet you and your god son at the track over the weekend. I also had the pleasure of meeting Dale Mathers (kiwiboss) who flew in from New Zealand. In spite of the rain, I still had a great time. That's a nice score on the tach. Last week of school... lucky you!

Thanks for the kind words, Dale.  I appreciate it.

This thread needs some pictures, so here's a set of original Jones Motrola 3.25" face tachometers.  The diameter of the outside edge of the bezel is ~3.7" for each of these.

And I believe the 1970 Chaparral Camaro also used a 4.25" face JONES Motrola cable-driven tachometer, similar to item posted just above.

Here are a couple of pics of the above tach, they benefit from not having been reduced for email reasons.
The numbers on the decal on the back are:  Model 5103-B-113  Ratio 1-2 Code EI Counter RAL

Is that piece original to your Firebird, Bruce or something that you picked up later?

It was something I picked with a view to using but since then I found a pic of my interior and courtesy of Chad Raynal, i now have the exact right version.

Great news that you were able to get an interior photo and get the appropriate tach. Definitely one of the benefits of networking with fellow like-minded enthusiasts.

Here's the pic Jon, I had to reduce it for here, but zoomed in you can see the tach.

Are these hard to come by? I haven't been too impressed with my Jones. The needle seems to bounce around more than I expected. Any one else have the same issue? Cable and tach drive are new btw...
