So I got all the parts that I needed for my ‘68 Scrambler tachometer, it lasted about 3 miles. Turns out, the shaft INSIDE the engine (forked part) broke off. Half was still inside the thimble drive, the other half is MIA. I continued to rid another 30 miles after it quit registering....I guess the engine is okay....From the pictures I’ve seen, looks like I’ll have a really pretty Tach that DONT WORK!

Yes. The oil pump has to be disassembled to replace the worm drive that has the two tach drive tangs on it.

Thats bad news, how easy was it to fit the spindle? I have a NOS one which wont fit in my engine case, let alone line up... I have another one which fits no problem.

The tang will most likely just find a quiet corner to rest in, theres a few of those in an A65 timing chest area, usually catching sludge.


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug
