Re: C10 gauge cluster

Do you mean a factory tach or just any tach? The factory tachs only came with the gauge option so the circuit board for tachs is for the gauge dash. I have stuck a Sun tach in the hole before in a gauge dash. I imagine it would be easier in a non-gauge dash.

I was thinking aftermarket tach if I could fit one properly.The camaro tach shown looks real nice and matches the era well.
