QUESTIONS:

Will tach #1799 work with a mid 1980’s Chevy 454 engine and HEI ignition without having to use any additional parts? It’ll be mounted in the dash on a 1973 Chevy pickup. 

Asked by: Gearup
Our tachometers will typically work with 80's HEI ignitions without issue.

If I sent you an Abarth face, could it be installed in this gauge?

Asked by: abarth nut
We would not be able to install that into any of our gauges as that would be a licensed logo.
