That's one to watch out for Dave, good information.

Tcherek had a whole rake of instruments for sale on her site last week.

It's a facebook site but if you contact her on ISIS Imports or norcal_moggirl on here it'll work.

Hi Guys, I just finished the fun task of renewing the rear axle wheel bearings and oil seals, and had the usual fun trying to remember how to put the brake shoes back.
Anyway, I tried the 10 second ignition on, but sadly no improvement with the high RPM reading on the Tacho.
Will take the tacho out soon and try the dip switch trick.
Cannot find anything wrong with the connectors.
Thanks kindly for all the advice.

Hi Guys, having replaced the rear wheel shaft bearings and hub seals, then noticing that the hand brake cable was corroded, then finding that both rear hydraulic brake cylinders were seized, I finally got round to looking at the RPM problem.
Couldnt find any faults with the cables or connections.
I removed the Tacho and "worked" the Dip switches back and forth with some elecrical cleaner and lubricant.
Guess what, works a dream now. Happy me!!
Thanks kindly to all that assisted me in this odd fault.
PS, now converting the dash to stainless steel toggle switches with chrome bezels on the instruments. Also fitting LED illumination to the instrumentation, complete with lots of diodes and an LED Dimmer unit. Looks good.
