Will any 52mm ones fit in the clock area? If so, i wonder if the tachomenter casing can be removed and a custom face plate made so it fits snugly in the clock area. Could be a nice project for me!

Where does it get its signal from?

Two wires go to the coil (if u have a carb or early injection i think), then there is an earth wire that I just put on the battery earth. They will usually have wiring for illumination in which case I just put mine fan switch.

I'm sure you can take them apart. 52 mm is just about right for fitting where the clock would go. I would try and get a TIM one becuase apparently there are quite a few naff ones that break or can be interfered with.

Remove the dashboard glove box thing and mount a cd-player mounting box - facing the passenger - on the shiny metalwork.
It's gonna look great!:)
