    125mm Tacho

    Found an advert for this company http://www.farringdoninstruments.co.uk/tachos.html. Useful for anyone building a GRP4 dash. They seem to offer custom faces if required, downside quite expensive at 450.

    Re: 125mm Tacho

    Faringdon Instruments are producing for the Alfaholics Stratos rebuild a replica 125mm Tacho. I have spoken to Max at Alfaholics and they will be producing a batch of these units if anybody should want one.
    It will have the tell tale needle that can operate in two modes, one where it sticks at the highest position reached and can be reset by a separate button or the second mode which automatically resets the needle after two seconds, showing max revs achieved in each gear.
    No indication on price yet but I do have a sample of the facia.

    That Alfaholics Stratos alloy rad is a bit pricey?

    chris Smith could have retired by now if he sold his at that price! Even if it does include the fans.
