Hi, I have a early 59A Coupe and wanted to verify the tachometer. The one I have has a turn signal arrow on the bottom and I'm not sure I have the right tach???? I know the blue light is for high beams. What is the green light to the left of the high beam light for?

Thanks,
Tim

that is incorrect for your car. you should have a red and a blue lens at the top only, the green arrow on the bottom did not get introduced until the T6B

the green to the left is for the running light indicator. A and Bt5 cars do not have this feature, so i doubt it is working if your car still has the original wiring harness.

That's what I thought... Thanks for the clarification. Is the red lens for the signal indicator?

Thanks,
Tim
