Got this tacho I’ve had for years.
Haven’t seen a mounting like this before.
Any idea what it’s out of?
Or is it just a general aftermarket job?

Those Smith's 85mm tachometers were readily available aftermarket back in the 80's.

So I set the tacho to 6cyl and hooked it up to the nanna Torana with a timing light as comparison.
Not too bad I think 😁
