It's an involved process, and will take a new guy 20 hours of frustration (after you do it a couple of times there's less of both). There is a bunch of good info on how to best tackle a dash removal and re-install.newbie here...just getting started learning with my son. I have a 1969 with 396. the tach isn't working. anyone have idea for troubleshooting?
