Default Mechanical Tachometer

I had the opportunity to buy an instrument panel from a heavy duty GMC that would physically fit in my 1965 C1000. The panel has a mechanical tachometer, and I would swap out my speedo. My question is this: does anyone know of a distributor for the GM 230/250/292 that supports a mechanical tachometer?

I have not heard or seen those but I found this company on the net. Seem to have been around awhile so they may know or maybe build you one for that purpose.

I have a Mallory distributor in one of my vehicles with a mechanical tach drive, so I know they make one for a Chevy. You could check to see if they have a listing for our GMC.

Mallory makes a few for sbc's, but if they made one for the 6 in the past, they do not now. Plenty of options for a Ford 292, but none for the good 292.
