Default 1980-1986 Instrument Cluster w/ tach

This is what a 1980-1986 Instrument Cluster w/ tach looks like:

This is a factory tach, IDK how rare they are, I've had 2 different 1986's w/ a factory tach and had to replace the whole cluster in my Bronco w/ one from a Junked 1986 f250.

I honestly have never seen a tach in any of the pre 87 trucks I've driven.
That may only be a handful, but they were all sticks.
Not like you have much choice of when you can shift with them old 4 speed brutes.

Of the 50+ 1980-1986 Trucks in the yard(they're separated by make) only the F250 I pulled the cluster in my pics out of had the factory tachometer, I told myself before I left to go to the yard, if they don't have a cluster I'll just use the one I have until I find one. My speedometer in the original one messed up, the gear in the head was stripped out, and the tach would only work when you were giving it gas..
