I am about to convert my 70 SS nogauge dash to one with gauges. Is the standard 70 SS tach 0-7000 with a redline at 5500? I have read that L78, L89 & LS6 redlined at 6500. I was assuming the tachs for 396 'and LS5 were same

Chuck, you're correct. The redline for the 454 LS5 and the L34 396 are the same; 5500 rpm. The 6500 is for the others you mentioned.

Thanks 4spdrat. My replacement gauge cluster should arrive any day if UPS cooperates. Anybody out there know of a good gauge tester/rebuilder? I suppose I could find one or two in Hemmings.

LS5 cars could also have a 5000 rpm redline tach.
