I recently had the speedo and tacho heads of my 1969 T150 refurbed by gREgg-K of this site.
After a very short time in use the tacho head malfunctioned.
After discussing the matter with Gregg I sent it back to him.
He examined it--diagnosed a problem with a reasonably high degree of probability, rebuilt the unit and retested it.
The examination and rebuild was at no charge--I paid only for the return postage.
These rebuilds were sent to him based on the very successful rebuild of a chronometric speedo several years ago.
If the refurbishment of these instruments had been loused up with no good response afterwards I would have undoubtedly posted here as a warning to others.
The exact opposite was in fact the case so I have no hesitation in awarding gREgg-K 5 service stars.

Tridentman: I have no speedo/tach experience with Gregg but his work on my mags and dynamos has been superb.

The roadside repairs make for the best post ride stories.

I've often found that for the most part customers are quite aware that sometimes [***] happens, whilst in many cases they start of as grumpy (defensive) what they actually want is a resolution to the problem that does not leave them feeling like your extracting the Michael. Good customer service often comes from how you deal with a problem.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!

Rod--I agree with you 110%.
Before I retired I had run manufacturing engineering businesses for over 30 years.
There we had a saying "The guy who never made a mistake never made anything".
My experience was that although you strived not to have mistakes--some mistakes were inevitable.
In those latter cases you were judged by the customer not by the fact that you made a mistake but rather you were judged by how you sorted it out.
In fact I remember several occasions where in the sorting out of a mistake the customer relationship became much more strong and deep than it ever would have been if the mistake had not occurred.
BTW--the above comments are general ones--they do not apply to the specific situation with Gregg which prompted this thread.
In that case it was not his mistake--rather grit from a dirty cable that found its way into the tacho head.
Needless to say--new cable purchased and installed with the refurbed tacho head.

I have had reputable automotive machine shops make mistakes and it seemed their first response is denial or a cover up...I had had problems with hired contractors and their first response was denial or cover up...As an electrical construction contractor, commercial/industrial/institutional, I also made mistakes..I found it was easier to just make the necessary corrections to give the customer the job they paid for. without overcharges due to my mistakes.. I usually didn't tell the customer because their lack of understanding of what I was doing would lead to more misunderstanding....
