I was able to get mine out by prying up with a set of tweezers. Just make sure you arent rotating it when you pull it out. Putting it in, you have to have the exact same lineup as when you took it out.Has any body had success doing this without breaking the needle? I had two needles, now I'm down to one. I really don't want to break this one. Any tips?
The cover on the tach I sold him is peeling. I imagine he is trying to re-cover, or repair it somehowWhy are you taking it out??
Seems that it doesn't fully right itself from what that says.Very carefully, remove the tach needle. The tachometer needle is a push-fit onto the pin that turns it. This is easiest to do if the tach face is still attached. The best way to do remove the needle is to carefully lever it off using two blunt instruments, applying pressure evenly with both. I used two chisels covered with a couple of layers of painter's tape. Do not allow the needle to turn as you pull it off. You want the needle to stay at the "0" mark as you pull it off, so when you replace it it will not need any adjustment.
