Tach & Speedo Guages

Post by norseman47 » Mon Jun 22, 2015 12:21 pm

Has anyone tried reconditioning their tach, or speedo, gauges? My tach stopped & shreads new cables upon startup. The speedo is starting to whine & swings 5mph either side of where ever you position it. I can't afford neither new, or current eBay prices on the gauges. Thanks!

People have been successful by copiously lubricating the brass bushings inside, but it's just buying time before the inevitable failure.
