NE1 know if it's possible to install a tach in my 81 300D? If so, how involved is the job? Do I need a complete cluster from a tach-equipped car or could I just swap the tach portion? Which cars could I get a tach from?
While we're on subject of gauges, I would also like to replace my 85 MPH speedo with a 150 MPH version. It's a purely cosmetic conversion, and I have the cluster already. Is it a direct swap?
Thanks.

sure - just find a 300D Turbodiesel and you'll need a complete cluster,

the magnetic pick-up mounted on the front of the motor,

the rest of that wiring and signal socket that is mounted on the inner left fender ,

and of course all the wiring from that socket to the dashboard.

your speedo MPH readings might be off though because of the different rear diff ratios of the 300D and 300D-Turbo.
