Default TZ tacho: Can you pull the glass cover off?

.
I am currently onto the tacho area of my TZ350C restoration.

Has anyone ever managed to remove the glass face of a TZ tacho?
I'd like to get inside mine to clean it up a bit if possible.

Greg

Hi Greg,

Once i opened a tacho to see what the different is between a standard RD tacho and a TZ tacho.



With a litle scrwewdriver you can unfold the metal brim at the backside.
Do it very easy and take very small steps to prevent that there comes ruptures.

To assemble the rim at the tacho you have to make a contramal for the rim.
Put the tacho including the rim, the rubber seal and the glass opun the contramal and fould the brim back, while you press the tacho hard at the backside. This is to be sure the rubber seal has to make the tacho waterproof. Just as by disassembling, do it very easy and make very small stepss.



The pictures below shows the innerside of the tacho's.
Left a TZ one, at he right side a standard RD/DS.
Note the differents. A TZ tacho is like a swiss watch.

Greg,

If you starting the job, don't forget to make pictures of it and place them on this (your!) Forum.
