Have you tried the aviation instruments section on Ebay? Otherwise, the usual instrument supply companies in the USA always have a good assortment.
Also, Aeromart at AirVenture is a great place for finding old instruments, tho' they may not necessarily be working. Wentworth Aircraft (wentworthaircraft.com) come & buy a huge amount of instruments at Aeromart presumably to recondition them for resale.
Aeromart's website is http://www.aeromart.webs.com/
Good luck. From what I've seen, half the fun is in the searching

Try Kirk McQuown, in the Los Angeles, California area. He has access to a lot of old items.

Have a look at Precision Dial in the USA : http://www.precisiondial.com/index.asp
They can put an authentic antique or classic face on any modern instrument, including modern tacho's
