Just a side note here about electronic tachs, the Stag MK II tach is
electronic and I beleive may the same size as the TR6 tach and even has
the same numerals etc. The Stag MKI tachs has a different set of
numerals but is the same size.
I have sold 2 sets of speedometers and tachs from Stags to Cobra replica
car kit builders who need period style guages but need an electronic
tach for a V-8 engine.
