Replacing my panel back to original type gauges.

I'm looking for a Clockwise SW tach for my C85. I would like to have a 90 degree drive if possible. Please let me know if you have anything you are willing to sell.

Thanks,

Tadd

P.S. I'm also looking for a 3 1/8" compass as well.

I have the same combination. The angle drive on the tach is also a reverser and is TIGHT to the tank even with wide spread instruments. I guess the right angle reverser should be on the engine end and a standard angle drive on the tach to provide clearance to the tank ?

If you find a tach, I have an adapter for the drive if you're interested.

I know this is an old post, but I'm looking for a Stewart Warner CW tach for my C-85-12.

Check out eBay. I just got one for $35, and I think it is a good one. A speedometer shop can rebuild them - they are just auto speedometers in a can.

For a Vag I think a CCW tach would have been original. Reverse the rotation with an angle drive on the -12 engine
