  1. On mine I decided to keep the original alternator gauge on the left side. Fuel gauge moved to the right side just like the original tach equipped cars. I have oil pressure and temperature gauges on the console, so having temp in the dash doesn’t help much. Of course you could also argue that the alternator gauge in the dash does very little as well and isn’t particularly useful. The tach has oil pressure and alternator and brake warning lights just like a factory tach has.
  2. The tach I have was made by Tribute Automotive. It has modern internals and plugs into my MSD tach output. The alternator warning light works a little different than an original. With this setup the warning light comes on for undervoltage and overvoltage (11.8v and 14.2v) I did not purchase it directly from them though. The guys at Orlando Mustang did the conversion on my cluster.
  3. There are reproductions of the in dash tach available. The one I have is made by a company in Pennsylvania. It does not require any modifications to the original non tach harness. I did have to swap the oil pressure sending unit to the dummy light style unit. The tach has the same warning lights as an original. I kept the alternator gauge on my cluster because I have oil pressure and temp gauges in the ashtray on the console. If a person were to buy the advertised cluster for $900 and then turned around and bought a new tach under dash and under hood harness, you would have quite a bit more invested than converting with a modern repro. I’m sure there is still a market for original stuff like the seller is offering, but there are other options.
  4. Thank you for all the replies. I ended up finding a place in Florida that offers a plug-n-play conversion using an exact looking repro tach made by a company in Pennsylvania. It will allow me to keep my alternator gauge on the left side and also will have the alternator and oil pressure warning lights that function. I don't particularly care about the alternator gauge, but I have a temperature sensor in the console, so adding another temp gauge to the dash doesn't help either. Comes with a 1 year warranty. The conversion is not cheap obviously, but nothing with these cars is. Nearest I can tell, it would be similar price for me to piece all the factory stuff together like Midlife mentioned as this plug-n-play conversion costs. Also, BlueCoupe.....nice job on that tach. That thing looks great.
  5. I have a 69 Mach 1 without a factory tach. My car currently has an autometer mounted on the column hooked to a MSD 6AL. The problem with the current setup is the tach is not particularly easy to see, and if I move it up further on the column it blocks the other gauges in the dash. Seems like an in dash tach would be the way to go. I poked around the internet a little bit and did not find anybody making reproduction in dash tachs for these cars. Should I start looking for a donor tach from an original tach equipped car? I'd like to stay with the original look
  6. What brand of speakers were you using that had the fitment issues?
  7. I’m looking for a dash speaker also. My car is a non AC car.
  8. Do you have a part number for any of the Infinity stuff?
  9. Is the 4x6 Kenwood the higher end one you are referring to?
  10. I have a 69 Mach 1 that I’m planning on taking a 2000 mile trip with. The car currently has the original AM radio and a single speaker in the dash. I was thinking I will add door speakers like the original Mach 1’s with that option had. I was also planning on getting the radio upgraded with Aurora parts. Anybody have suggestions for what speakers fit the doors and sound the best? Dash speaker suggestions welcome too
