I have fitted a set of series 2 Xj6 guages into the instrument surround of my XL falcon ute. Looks great but does anyone know of what mods are need to recalibrate the 6 cylinder tacho to 8 cylinder?

Glynn there will be a requirement or some component changes ,and of course recalibration.unless you have the equipment then an instrument shop should do the job for you, I purchased a S1 fitted with a chevvy ,for it,s bits and still have the type 12 trans with adaptor bellhousing and the tacho which I note has been set up for V8[the face of the instrument has "8" printed over the "6cyl",and non standard looking wiring]......Frank.
