I did that in 1976,when I first bought the car because thefactoy tach was so'sloppy'...  I sent the factory tach off for rebuilding (a long time ago), and as part of my 'returning to original' activites, I have put back all the original parts.

I don't plan to run my engine to 8 grand anymore...if I can help it..  Smiley    I'll probably be puttering around in it once it goes back on the road.

Smiley ...  I've got a couple of LT5's that can give one almost the feeling of the early 302...   7000 rpm and 4 cams.. Smiley    But I've been *loving* the thrill of high rpm engines for so long, that at my age now, it's almost as much fun just knowing that you can..  if you want to..   Smiley   without having the need to... ?

Henry J with a stick...hard act to follow, had to be a pretty violent launch. Launch the Anglia at 3800....on the primary's...feels like the seat is pulling through your back. Sorry Jon ,we got off on a tangent.

When looking for NOS Stewart Warner gauges, from at least 1965 through 1974 (and possibly other years as well) they came in red and yellow boxes. Always check the part number and date code though, just to be sure. Stewart Warner went to a 6-digit part number later on.
