When someone looks at a Corvette, they notice the body. The wheels, the grille, the paint, the iconic Corvette logo – these are what typically catch someone’s eye. If the hood is open, then the engine can become a focal point. It is quite unlikely that someone would notice the Corvette’s tachometer. That’s not even the kind of thing that a person may be able to easily see from outside the vehicle. However, for the most discerning, uncompromising Corvette owner, having a tachometer that works and looks right is critically important. In this blog, we’ll go over how we offer Corvette tachometer repair works and even some restoration parts that we offer.
Corvette Tachometer Repair Plus
Corvette tachometers from 1953-1962 are a rare breed indeed. We take special care with these and any other tachometers to make sure they’re in their best working condition. Our repair packages for these tachometers include disassembly cleaning, restoring the case, as well as rebuilding or replacing the internal mechanism and (whichever is most appropriate) and of course final calibration to insure accuracy. . It’s important to note that those aren’t special “add-on” prices. This is our standard procedure.
Extras for Tachometer Repair
That being said, we do have extra, “add-on” services that can make your tachometers just that much better. We understand that when you come to us, you don’t want to have to settle for anything less than the very best. So, we can take your tachometer repair to that next, higher level. This means that we can reface your 1959-62 tachometers and we can even replace your tachometer revolution counter (1953-1958 applications) if necessary. Often the chrome bezel is dull or pitted. We can replace them with our very own exact reproduction tachometer chrome bezel. Attention to detail is critical at every step of making sure that your Corvette is in its best working order.
Certain Years, Special Attention
Classic Corvettes changed quite a bit from model to model. Our tachometer work reflects that, with the goal of ensuring your Corvette looks just like it should. As you may know, instruments from Corvette manufactured from 1953-58 may require lens backplate refinishing. We can take care of that for you. We understand that as important as it is to have a Corvette that looks fantastic, not everyone has as much money to spend on their Corvette as they might like. With that in mind, we can complete this service for just $20. Giving our customers the best work at the best price point is important to us.
Reproduction Corvette Tachometers
Repair is just one of our Corvette tachometer services. For many different models of Corvette, we have exact reproduction parts. It’s important to bear in mind that we don’t just make a tachometer and then put in a tweak here and there to make it fit your classic Corvette. Instead, we do everything in our power to ensure that these parts are just like the tachometer that was installed on the assembly line. . The lay person won’t be able to tell the difference. The expert probably won’t be able to tell the difference. These parts truly restore your Corvette to an earlier age, like taking years off of the vehicle itself.
When we say that we have “reproduction tachometers,” it’s important to note that we offer more than just reproductions of the complete tachometers themselves. Indeed, you can get reproduction parts for your tachometers. This way, you can have the best working parts for your tachometer. With these parts, your Corvette can continue to run well and look great long into the future. To help ensure that, we have a long list of quality, reproduction tachometer components. . Like so many of our other parts, these reproduction parts don’t look like a reproduction. They look like an original that stepped right out of the past.
The 1953-1974 tachometers that we repair or restore are mechanical. While these tachometers have truly stood the test of time, we know that some folks are looking for more performance and longevity out of their tachometers. So, we offer electronic conversions for all tachometers except for those from the years of 1963 and 1964. With an electronic conversion, you can combine the look of the past with the advanced tech and durability of the future. Our electronic conversion Tachometers can even be used with a modern LS series engine conversion.
Tachometers are just one of the many important parts of your vehicle. We know how much you want your Corvette to look like it should. We understand that because we’re Corvette owners, too. This isn’t just a job for us, something to do where we get to have fun with a hobby – this is something we truly love. These vehicles deserve to be maintained.
