Hi Greg, your best bet to match the look is probably to reach out to Smith's Gauges (https://smithsgaugesusa.com/chronometric). If matching the look isn't important to you, all you need to do is pick a tach that fits the hole. The tach just gets a couple of wires, a signal from distributor or ignition box, the light, and a ground. Most of the aftermarket tachs (e.g., AutoMeter, Dolphin, Stewart Warner, etc) have a switch or other mechanism to make them work with a 4, 6, or 8 cylinder motor. Hope that helps
I’m looking to put a new tachometer in my ‘79 MGB. I’ve tried rebuilds with no luck and to be honest, I’d be okay with a new style/model.
Has anyone done this? If so, or if you know what to look for in selection, please reply.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
