Re: My tach install thread

63frankintruck, i need pics and your cluster if you want me to look into this. If anyone has a 60-63 cluster that can be without it, or a spare, let me know. I may be able to make a bracket for these years also.

Re: My tach install thread

In my cluster the overspeed hole is the same diameter as all of the other light holes.

Re: My tach install thread

I would like to know if the light socket is the same. None of my "deluxe gauges" harness sockets fit it.

Re: My tach install thread

What exactly are you looking for measurement wise? I have 3 or 4 clusters.
If you make a bracket for 63 what is the cost?
Also, I have not been on forum for a while. ( busy with home remodel)
Are you the guy that restores clusters?

Re: My tach install thread

I just need a cluster shipped to me. Ill proly have it for a several months too. Cost to you 63frankintruck is just whatever it costs to ship to me. I want some pictures first, then i will ask for certain measurements to see if feasible, then you can proly ship it to me if i think i can do it. Post up a pic of the front and the back first tho.

Re: My tach install thread

Update on the Overspeed hole size. The information that I was looking for was right in front of me. The hole size in the cluster stamping is 3/4"

Re: My tach install thread

Re: My tach install thread

Is there a preferred location for the tachometer, L or R? Based on the backside, im guessing the right side as you look at the speedometer face, just cuz the way that the cluster housing is stamped. Looks like it would be where the reproduction tach would go.

Re: My tach install thread

Does anyone have a 60-63 cluster with a Tachometer in it? I would like some closeup pics of the front and back please. Im very interested in trying to design a bracket for this cluster.

63frankintruck, im still interested in getting this up and going.

Re: My tach install thread

So here is a pic of my updated bracket. I have reduced the size of the right side hole to accept a stock harness light socket. It is the "overspeed" hole.

Re: My tach install thread

Are you guys that bought my bracket using the Bosch FST8050 Retro Tach? Im curious if anyone has cut the chrome face off of it and what it looks like afterwards. I designed the bracket to fit the tach in place without cutting it apart.

Re: My tach install thread

The Bosch/Sunpro FST8050 Chrome cup is removable. Does not have to be cut off. Just purchased one off eBay. Very nice. Let me know if your bracket will fit. No rush as I have the front suspension out for a rebuild.

Re: My tach install thread

If anyone has taken apart the newer Bosch Tach, can you post some pics of the internals?
