This is a brand new TRD 10k tach still in the box.

You can see that the face is slightly angled. The needle isn't.
When it reaches the top of the tach, it slightly hits the face between 6 and 7k.

This is only minor, but is it supposed to be like this? Seems very strange to me.

Never mind, I see. The face is angled because the cardboard is holding it back on the left. It's screwed in tight against the cardboard in the center, causing the left part to be forced upwards. DOH! Strange to pack it like that though, they coulda done a better job.

I'll keep this open to remind myself to think before posting :blah:

So are we. An oven isn't quite the best place for placing a new TRD tach on.

These things are out of production now, right? I'd like one, but ouch, $450 is a lot.

Anyways, back to the problem. It just seems like the 10k rpm "guage" is "bent" up. Just use double sided tape so it goes down. You won't even see the tape.
