To upgrade the dash you need a rally cluster ($350-500) and a different wiring harness/adapter section. You can install a factory repro tach in the blank housing, or leave it as--is and install a Sun or other period correct tach on the steering column. Column mounted tachometers were common back in the day, and work just fine. (actually more accurate than the original in-dash tach.

So the wife did nothing but complain about the $30 tach mounted on my steering column since the factory dash tach was not working. So $225 later, my factory tach is rebuilt and just got it all back together. While I was at it, spent another $100 to have the factory temp gauge fixed. I will need to remind the wife of this when she complains about the money I spend on the car... :)
