www.car-part.com search all salvage yards in your state. They dont come stock white so ebay is where to look for the overlays.

The automatic transmission trucks have the tach.

I dont believe so cause it is reading from a sensor that you already have.

Ya they are essentially a plug and play gauge. They still ran all the necessary wires.

I cant guarantee that it will. Just buy some new ones and replace them all.
