If you want to use an vintage SUN tachometer like used in CSX 2128 and a few others you can find these tachs on ebay USA. You have the choice between many 50th to 70th tachs. It will be a bit difficult to find a "Greenline" version and even more difficult to find the 8000 max revs version not the 8500 as I wrongly bought first :( . Then it gives the R.P.M. "Thousands" and "Hundreds" version. 2128 had the Hundreds version. What these old tachs all have in common: they used a transmitterbox with batteries :-(. 50 years old batteries don't work. You can find for insane money working transmitter boxes or electronic circuit boards which can be installed to get the transmitter box working. Well, not for me the electrical bungler. The option is to buy a repro Sun tach that looks okay except the dial. It's black/white. I dissembled both tachs (the old one was easy with a few screws, the Repro one was difficult. I hah to bead the chromed front frame from the body and had to bend the flange very carefully back after assembling the cutted and reshaped vintage scale. But it worked. May I glue on the black knob in front of the tach too.

To made the change from windshield frame (where the mirror is to located to) to single screen and vice versa easier I made a back plate for the escutcheon cover plate. If I use the single screen I have just to remove the escutcheon plate and bolt on the "mirror plate" which holds the Raydyot replica mirrors already :-)

Mounted a new and a used Holley pump, one as alternative if the number one fails which I have had 2 time a few years ago 200 miles from home :(

Both with filters, shut off valves and third filter before hitting the gas pipe to the front.

2128 had only 11 rivets with unequal dinstance between and the position of the badges a little different.

Doors mounted. The cockpit and rear "frame" edges are not in line with the door eges but that was willful done. They are the same bad making as the original were done :)

LH door with the "space" like 2128

Had to laminate 2 more layers GRP. When the bonnet and boot is closed there is still space between the rubber strips and the edges :(
