O'Day 30 Yanmar Instrument Cluster

My old O'Day has the ignition switch mounted in a recessed panel with two red warning lights. I have no idea what each light is for. I suspect water temperature and oil pressure but not sure. The lights glow red when the ignition is on but the engine is not running. The lights extinguish when the engine (Yanmar YSM 12) is running. Any idea of light use?

Also, there is a very old tachometer with a limited range. Where it is mounted down in the cockpit it is difficult to see. I have searched for a replacement that will cover the engine speed range but have not found one. Most are for automotive applications with full deflection at around 6000 rpm. Any idea where to look?

Finally, perhaps best would be a new Yanmar instrument / control cluster. Any suggestions for finding a good used one or reasonable new one?
