Corvette Tachometer Repair and Restoration


Corvette Tachometers. We repair, rebuild and restore all of the Tachometers used from 1953 thru 1974. If your tachometer has never been rebuilt, simply stated, it needs to be rebuilt.  The grease that was used when the units were built dries up and becomes a wax-like substance. Problems such as wildly swinging pointer, vibrations, and other erratic operation are common.  This type of tachometer is mechanical and is driven by a cable either from the distributor or generator. Mechanical tachometers, like speedometers, require calibration in order to assure accuracy. The first worm, or magnet is charged and discharged as required. Final calibration is achieved by adjusting the spring tension of the speed cup.  We calibrate the tachometer using a machine specifically designed for this purpose. It is important to know whether the tach is generator or distributor driven when calibration is performed.

1959-1974 tachometers have the graphics printed on a metal face. We have the capabilities of re-screening the artwork on the original face. Our screening process results in an exact duplicate of the original graphics.

We stock all parts used in these tachometers. Many of the parts we have had reproduced ourselves.

Electronic conversions are available for all years except 1963 and 1964.  Please inquire.

IMPORTANT PACKING & SHIPPING NOTES: When shipping gauges and other items for restoration, please wrap the items securely! We suggest wrapping each item in bubble wrap individually and cushioning the wrapped bundles within the box with more packaging. When shipping open-face gauges, protect the gauge face by taping the gauge face-down to a piece of cardboard and wrap with bubble wrap. Note that some pointer bases may stick up beyond the edge of the face so the cardboard may need to have a small hole to accommodate it. Be sure to fill the package completely with cushioning material, especially the corners, as any movement within the box can cause damage. Do not use packing peanuts as they allow too much movement within the package. Insure your items for a replacement value you feel comfortable with. Please note that even if you insure your items, if the carrier determines the package was not packed properly they may dispute your damage claim.
