WTB: tachometer for '76 911S

Looking for a decent tach for my newly purchased '76. If I'm not mistaken the original is an 8K RPM tach with redline at 6.3-6.5k. Somehow a 914 tach found its way into my car over the years. So it reads 1.5x actual engine RPM and shows a redline at 5600. Not very useful! My car isn't perfect so the tach doesn't need to be either. Working is preferred but I could probably rebuild one as well if the price is right. I'm thinking value is $100-$250 depending on condition. send me a pic and a price if you have anything. Thanks!

There are some on eBay but I would feel more comfortable buying one from a forum member. I'm trying to build this car on a budget so a $500 mint condition tach isn't in the cards.

You are correct, it is 8k with a ~6250ish redline. Here is a picture of a '76 tach that I removed from my car that is now wall art at my desk (sorry not looking to sell, just trying to help you confirm what you're looking for).

Tach

I have this one dated 12/75 and that would be correct for a 76. Very good condition. The paper seal under the glass is creeping down a bit. You could remove the bezel and repair it or send it out to one of the repair shops. Easy fix. $200.00 plus shipping.

Here you go. I pulled it from a 1977 that I converted to a S/C engine - & therefore needed a different tach. The date stamp shows late '74. Its very good with only a slightly bumped bezel as the only downfall. $200 shipped from me to you.

Thanks. That one would be perfect. However I got impatient and ordered one on eBay that is cosmetically excellent but untested. If it doesnít work Iím interesred in yours. Iíll let you know ASAP.

Same goes for yours. Iíll let u know. How difficult is it to remove the bezel without damage? Is it a crimped fit?

Very good thank you.

BTW the bezel is indeed a crimp fit. It can be removed with home hand tools (with varying degrees of success), but the proper bezel tool is the best option for no damage.

NO LONGER LOOKING.

Thanks to everyone who offered! The tach I purchased from eBay arrived and it looks great (so good it makes my other gauges look bad!) and even better it works! I would have rather bought from someone one the Forum but as I said, I got impatient and jumped on the eBay tach. Fortunately it worked out in my favor.
