SW20 Tachometer and Boost gauge sender unit.

Hi,
My tachometer not reading correctly so I’m after a replacement. They are fairly easy to take out of the cluster,
so I would only want the tacho.
Also after an electronic sender unit for a 92 import Turbo factory boost gauge.

    Teacho. If not working or changing rates of movement. Replace the capacities from a local jaycar for about $15. If just at wrong idle but moves correctly, just remove the needle and replace back on when car is running and the inner spring will reset correctly when switched off.

    I fixed the tacho a couple of weeks ago. Started to read lower and lower until it almost didn’t move at all.

    Need two 10uF caps (I bought bigger voltage ones, 50or 60v - plenty of room to fit larger ones), they are about 10-20 cents each. Quite an investment.... :). They looked fine btw, didn’t display bulging or leaking. Easy to do if you are handy with soldering iron.

    While cluster was out I inserted some LED globes I had (eBay spec). Reading the requirements for needing to sand the back of dials etc I thought I would just give it a go and it has transformed the dials. Looks fantastic and like a modern car.

    Cheers
