Default Dash with Tachometer

I know I saw somewhere someone was making these at one time. Anybody out there a metal worker that can make me a stock dash plate with two standard size speedo holes on the top (for tach & Speedo) and 4 small gauges hole on the bottom? Would like to maintain the stock rolled lip. I'd also like to maintain at a minimum the stock highbeam indicator ... but preferably the convoy lights as well although those are not manditory.

Just let me know if anyone is game and we can talk $$. Probably need it in a couple weeks. Mechanic is starting the wiring now.

Thanks!!!!

The dash plate for a m35a2 might work or from another 5 and 7 ton trucks that have both holes already in them. Just have to widen your dash mount to make them fit.

YEs sir! I got of those. But it doesnt look like there is enough room to widen the hole AND keep the data plates.

I moved the 3 lever light switch to the other side of the steering column like the M35 has it and put my tachometer where the light switch used to be.

I used to make some way back in the day.


My buddy used to work in a race car shop and had access to a water jet and bead roller, but unfortunately he no longer works there. And I used to have the cad drawing for it but lost it when I lost my old computer in the shop fire we had back in 2015. I know I had emailed the cad file to a couple guys at times, so maybe one of them will speak up if they still have it.

Hi Teking,

I bought an M715 yesterday with this piece in perfect condition. I can make an as-built and share it with you but probably canít give that sufficient attention for a couple of weeks. Alternatively, Iím happy to ship you the piece so you can recreate it and then you can ship it back.
