How to Modify Hours on a Tachometer

Quick question: I just replaced my engine, but the engine panel was not swapped out. Is there a way to roll back the hours on a tachometer to zero it out, or am I going to need a new tach?

As always, thanks.

Swap out the tach, is still your best bet. I don't think they allow you to "counter-spin" them, like the old odometers.

Good call, I guess I bite the bullet and get a new tach. Thanks.

Keep it.

Why not just make an official note of the engine swap in your ship's log book and keep the old hour meter?
