I recently purchased an NOS clock for a chevelle. I have been told that a 70 clock has green arms and 71 has red? Anybody else ever hear of this; I thought all chevelle, (70-72) clocks had red arms?!
Well the hands should be "red" (actually a flourescent orange type of color). They were the same for all years I believe (to match the pointers of the same colors in the dash instruments and radios etc.)
And yes, 1970 components have light green lettering/numbering, 1971-1972 units have white lettering/numbering.
that site is what I have been looking for! How did you ever find that! I picked up a small block '70 tack 5000 redline a while ago and I was going to put it into my non guages '70 LS5, but I was really hoping to put the correct 6000 redline tach into the car. Now I have a source to have it converted! I am going to email him for an estimate. I also want my clock switched over to quartz. If anyone has dealt with "The tachman" , please let us know how it went and what type of quality (original) to expect. http://www.tachman.com/
today i ups'd my clock to d and d restorations in greenville , s.c. i called mike at d & d and the tachman, both the same price but sounded like i'd get faster turnaround time from d&d. they'll convert the clock to quartz and ship it back for about $135.
they will bench test it for several days to make sure it maintains the correct time before they ship it back.
