used these guys to fix my 240 tacho

$220 and a long 4 weeks, but they replaced some of the electronics and mechanism. works smooth and accurate like a champ

seems reasonable

Have driven past this place a few times on the way to work, was looking at one point in having them update the internals to the Tach given the L28 efi motor i had setup.

Busy Busy is a very good sign.
I am always a little nervous when someone can take on a job immediately.

lots of professional looking gadgets in their showroom

and here's the punchline:

turns out that the amazing, innovative 240z used a license built copy of the smith's instruments - fitted to all the pommy cars of the period

i took mine apart and it looked just like the mgb one

haha - take that you pommies, we're going to formally license YOUR instruments and YOUR carbs - and then completely smash you in the market place
