Corvette Tachometer Repair and Restoration

 

Corvette Tachometers. We repair, rebuild and restore all of the Tachometers used from 1953 thru 1974. 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.
