OER tach install

Im planning to convert my 68 Malibu dash to accept the OER 6468822 "roller" tach. Has anyone else installed this tach into a dash that was originally a non-tach panel. I have already sucessfully cut out the center on the dash panel, and have an original bezel to place in the opening. Any other advise would be appreciated.

Do you have the clear lens for the tach opening? Pic

I can't remember what the back side of the idiot light carrier looks like, but this is where the tach mounts in a gauge style cluster-

Re: OER tach install

Bill,
No, I do not have a lens. Where can I obtain one? If its flat, maybe I can make one.
The back side of my carrier is flat, with no opening for tach. If I could see a picture of the
opening, I could duplicate it on mine. Thanks for your help!

The lens is flat and you'll have to make one. Here are some pics-






These are all the pics I have of the tach opening. Hope it helps.

Re: OER tach install

I thought I would pass this information on here. These are reproduction lenses. I just bought a set.
