Anyone out there with a spare TR8 rev counter they'd like to sell?

I have a converted 4 cyl TR7 rev counter in my Grinnall V8 conversion, but it would be nice to have the red line in the right place.

Alastair:

I would think some masking tape and a rattle can of red paint would solve that with great dispatch.

Of course, if you are anal-retentive like me, then nothing less than a real TR8 rev counter will do. Anything else is simply not civilized.

The lads at Robsport might be able to supply a real one. Email them and see if they can help.

P.S. When I find myself in similar situations, I create a search on eBay, and turn on the email feature so that I am notified when one comes up for sale. Food for thought.

Ebay search notification sounds like a plan!

Many thanks.

I have several. Send me pm and we can discuss. Have to warn you. I have not had good luck sending parts to the uk. I actualy send a tr8 tach there once. Your postal service lost it. 9 months later it ended up back on my doorstep.
