Known issues:

Tachometer does not work: since I upgraded to the Lucas Electronic Ignition system there is no tach gear on the distributor. Solution: replace the tachometer that can accept the electronic connection (I have that as part of the sale)

Speedometer does not work: since I installed a GT6 rear end (taller gears) the speedo cable is not connected as it has a false reading. Solution: purchase a gear for the speedo to match the gauge/speed.
