Tacho Warning Lights

#1 Post by John Clarke » Mon Jan 15, 2018 11:01 am

Hi all
After consulting Brett Johnson's 356 authenticity book again, prior to installing the replacement Tachometer, I'm still confused!
Can anyone explain what and where the warning lights are positioned? (Two at the Top ?) and is there a turn/direction indicator at the bottom?
T.I.A. Cheers Jay

I really am losing the plot! It's a Speedo NOT the Tacho!
Thanks again Jay

speedo has no warning lights

tach has a blue light for high beam at 1 o'clock and a red for the turn signal at 11 o'clock (while facing the gauge from the driver's seat), as well as 2 illumination lights at 8 and 2

combo in a T5 is a red generator warning light on the left and a green oil pressure warning light on the right. then there is one light for illumination.

Is that the same on a 59? Mine are not in the correct sequence.

My '58 is the same as described by Jules. Which reminds me, I need to take the stuck Tachometer to North Hollywood.
