Looking for a SunPro Tach Mount: Dashboard

Forgive me if this is the wrong forum to post on BUT......

I'm looking for a part that Sunpro no longer sells.

It's a dash mounting bracket for their 3 3/8" Sunpro Analog Tach....among others.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sun-sst802r/overview/

The tach comes with two mounts: a steering column mount and a dash mount. I'm actually looking for the DASH mount for my 2 5/8" SunPro Retro Tach...but can not find one.

The mount was also sold in a kit: SunPro Part #NC5R.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sun-nc5r/overview/

I realize that this is somewhat of a needle in a haystack.....so thanks for your time.

Tony, does one of the brackets have a flat on it while the other has a curve. If so, which do you need?

Yes indeed. I need the flat one.....and a small miracle.

Re: Looking for a SunPro Tach Mount: Dashboard

Tony, i located the new round bottom bracket, but have not located the flat bracket yet. I remember installing the tach in a 32 deuce coupe years ago. I put the tach in the dash, so the bracket is here somewhere. Will keep looking thru my junk boxes. Could you modify the round brackets base to work?

Re: Looking for a SunPro Tach Mount: Dashboard

Actually, one of the users on this forum found the kit online and sent me a link to it....so I should be good. Thank you SO much for taking the time to look for the part. A very nice move on your part to be sure.

I'm trying to mount my tach as neatly and cleanly as possible...and this is my meal ticket.

Deejay: Today, I was informed that my kit is no longer in stock at the online joint that I ordered it from.

If the offer still stands to dig your bracket up some time at YOUR convenience, I'll gladly buy it off you.

Thanks again for the effort!
