what would be my best option? and would there be any rewiring required?
I don't know if the year you are talking about has the wires installed from the factory for a tach already wired in or not, But i seriously doubt it. I would think you would have to re-wire in the factory tach or a after-market tach as well. But it wouldn't that big of a job to wire one in be it factory or not. Have you thought about finding a decent after-market tach and fitting it in where the stock clock is at now i have seen it done before with the right tach.
I just went out and took a look at my 78 T/A and if i am not mistaken they have pretty much the same cluster and if so i have a old sun tach that would fit in mine with very little if any mods to fit it in where the old one was at. JMO Or you can find the orignal tack from another car and get it all from there and install it get the wires and all from the donor. Or you can order a stock tach from a parts restorer dealer and do it that way also. You should even be able to get the tach harness from the dealer also i would think anyway. JMO
