    Hi,
    the tach as well as the cable will probably need to come from an aircraft supply place like Chief or Aircraft Spruce and Specialty. The oil temp and pressure can be from JC Whitney or wherever. It may take some looking to find the right fittings to connect the oil temp and pressure to the engine but it can be done. My Lycoming has fuel pressure gage from Summit Racing, the oil pressure from AutoZone and I can't remember where the oil temp gage came from but I didn't pay very much for it either.
    Best wishes,
    Wally
