I simply used some black silicone caulk to fill the hole in the rubber grommet... Later front-covers (after the electronic tachs came in ('+78?)) don't have the notch for the rubber grommet, if you would want to go that way....!

I also used some high-melting-point grease, like wheel-bearing grease, to plug the hole inside the front cover where the tach cable had been.....
