The 260 and 280 have the standard cup gauge which is mounted to the inside
of the dash by a bracket. You can replace the gauge, but I'm telling you now, getting that clock out is not the easisest thing in the world.

Matt,

I installed Autometer 2 5/8 gages in my Z car and they are all in a clock housing. These work great.

I read in a FAQ somewhere that the clock can usually be fixed by cleaning and re-oiling the internal gear sets - this is a common problem. There's an adjuster in there too for speed.

You could fit a boost gauge... of course then you'll want a turbocharger as well :)
