Can I get this tach with white Background? I’m looking for Chrome 2-5/8 for clearance and white background because I have trouble seeing red needle on black background 

Asked by: Waggs
Thank you for your inquiry. This product is only available with a black dial. You might want to look at our 3707, which has a silver dial:

can it be dash mounted conventionally?

Asked by: donmc48
Thank you for your question. This can be taken off the pedestal and it will fit in a 2-5/8" hole. However, this gauge does not come with an in dash mounting bracket, so you will need to provide some type of mounting bracket to hold the tachometer in the dash.

i have a 2895 tack its to big for were i want to put it .i want to put it on the column. would a 2893 fit 0n my 68 cutlass s olds with after column flaming river or a suggestion?

Asked by: racerjer
Thank you for your question. We cannot confirm if this unit will fit in another company's panel or pod as we do not know the exact dimensions. This tach is notably smaller than the 2895. If you take it off the pedestal, it's dimensions are: 2-7/8" across the dial face and 3-1/4" deep, it will fit in a 2-5/8" hole.

Can this tach be mounted upside down = under the dash and therefore have its dail / the tach itself turned inside the mount? Thank you

Asked by: GermanMike
Hi Mike, thank you for connecting with us. Yes, the 2893 does rotate 360 degrees within the mounting strap and can be mounted upside down or under the dash.

I am thinking of mounting this tach to the column of my 61 TBird. Typically, column mounts use a strap that wraps around the steering column and tach bracket. In the pictures I have seen of this tach the bracket is too short. Please advise. 

Asked by: bbogue
Thank you so much for contacting us. The height of the mounting piece is the same size as what we use on the larger tachs and should clear most columns without an issue. We've not gotten any feedback to the effect of it being too short over many, many years of production, but are happy to try and help should you have an issue.
