Hello young man,,I do have the answer to that some where as the rev counter on a diesel was a retro fit in place of the clock I believe

As it was at leasr 3 years ago I will have to look it up shortly

I have the paper for the rev counter retrofit and I will send that.

The rev counter on a 129 is a different cup of tea as it was never a retrofit.

The 250D used the front crankshaft sensor, and the 129 used the other end of the engine.

As the rev counter on the 129 is built into the cluster, I may not have anything that I can print off
