Re: Rev counter help!!!please, please

Just got at mine to change a bulb.....

There's one screw at 12 o'clock that allows you to remove the 'tunnel' part of the instrument binnacle. I found lowering the steering wheel gave better access to the top screw.
Once that's out, there are 2 more at 7 and 5 that will allow you to remove the tacho. You may have to rotate the tacho slightly before it'll will move toward you.
There are two electrical connectors on the back of the tacho, remove them and the whole thing can be removed.
I understand it's best to disconnect the battery (a la Haynes), before fiddling with the connectors.
Once the tacho is removed it can be removed from the casing by releasing the tabs on the rear and pullling the 2 halves apart., but that's a bit drastic.
Illumination bulbs are 1/2 twist on the back, and easy to change.
Everything else is some elec-trickey stuff.

...if wishes were fishes, we'd all cast nets...
