        I am also trying to restore the use of my original tachometer in my Speedster. I have assembled all of the pieces to make it all work - EXCEPT the two little clips that hold the dist. cap and sender to the distributor. I have learned that these little spring steel clips attach to the spring clips on the distributor as 'extensions' and these hold the entire assembly to the distributor. Does anyone have some of these clips or know where I might find them?

          Does anyone know if it is safe or possible to 'bench test' these tachometers? I'd like to test it before I it all back together. Can I apply 6V or perhaps less to test the tach unit?
