Neil, needles 'straight up' is a good idea, and an old one.  The Brit
road-racing mc writers were telling novices at least 60 or 70 years ago
to set their rev-counters(tachometers) so that at whatever red-line they
wanted to use, the needle was at 12 o'clock.  In 'the heat of battle',
just a glimpse would tell them wot's wot.  This trick may have been
thought up even years before that, for all I know.  Needless to say,
that's how I set up the tacho in #124.  Bill
