decided to putz around with the old auto shift column today after hooking up and adjusting the cable for the console shifter. Made the decision a while back that i was not gonna swap it, seemed silly to throw $300.00 at it just to get one with out the shift lever lug. I punched out the pin for the handle and to my surprise the notch was just a bit narrower then the hub on my old Sun Tach. I did not want to do the old pipe clamp it to the column thing as it would not look finished, but after i measured the hub and opening i grabbed the die grinder and shaved off some from the tach got it to press fit in nice and snug and drilled the hole just a touch bigger and the pin even tapped back through. I have a guy engraving me a "Tempest" plexi insert for the old shift indicator as i love the art deco look of it....Tempestien will live again.... :grin: (Housing blue or black????)

Thanks Les, was hoping you would look in to see the ashtray, adjusted it prior to the pic so it fit nice....lol. I will post when i get the badge done for the indicator. Tach actually looks pretty good lines right up over my Dummy light hole, and just appears to float there as you cannot see how it is mounted.
