Default Rebuild tach on 145, anyone have experience?



Anyone rebuilt one of these?

Mine needs a new window but its also horribly imprecise. Wonder if anyone has experience at cracking one open?

I'm not the guru here, but I've never seen one of those? I thought the factory add on tach was round... that might be an aftermarket unit

I don't believe Volvo ever sold that tachometer.

The Volvo add on tachometer for a pre-1973 140/164 looked like this.
