    Default Tachometer repair

    Is there a vendor who can rebuild a 1973 240z Tachometer. Not someone who just substitutes a junkyard unit, but actually can go through the circuit board and the mechanical and repair. I vaguely remember there used to be some guy, I think from around the San Diego area(maybe not), that said he repaired all Z gages. Anyway, any suggestions are welcome. Victor.

    Just out of curiosity, why not just replace it? I can't see a repair being cheaper?

    Well, a replacement wouldn't be any newer, and might then die again in a short time. A proper repair would be more likely to last, assuming you can find a 'proper repair' for one.

    I just did a search under Automotive Gauge Repair in Portland and came up with a company that does tach repairs in addition to other gauges. The search function on the internet will find most anything. And don't worry about a Z tach being all that unusual internally.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll check the Portland people out. Maybe call them and see if they're up to the task. Tucson, where I live, doesn't have much available. Vic.

    Do a search in Phoenix. There appear to be several listed under that category. I'd guess there are 75 outfits between Portland Oregon and Tucson that can freshen up a tach.
