I have a '71 SS454 Convertible.
Wanted to know what the procedure is for removing a factory dash tach. Ant experiences/ firsthand accounts would be appreciated. Also, know of any good places that repair them ........ thanks

The tach doesn't come out completely by itself, it is part of a complete gauge cluster but can be removed individualy. Just my $.02... by the time you remove the cluster from the car, I'd go ahead and send in All the gauges to be checked over, cleaned and whatever cosmetic work you may want.

This is the business in Conneticut I'm using:
American Classic Restorations

Hope this helps

It is possible to just remove the tach, and leave the rest of the gauge cluster in. Remove the printed circuit board and the connector. This should allow you to get to the five or so small screws holding in the tach. The bottom couple may be difficult, but I have done it. You may have to slightly lower the dash down a bit. Also, if your dash has any other problems, I would pull the entire dash as a unit, and repair everything.

Good Luck,
