Sprite tachometers are a persistent problem. The cables fail, tach drives fail, instruments fail, etc. Many of the cars that arrive here come with non-working tachs.
We are always looking for a better solution. This electronic tach is that solution. It’s a brand new unit, built to match our GPS powered speedometer (which you can see by clicking here)
. We’ve custom made this gauge face to evoke the look and feel of the original. You can see in the photos that our new gauges are a close match to the original gauge face.
Now you can have modern new gauge reliability with the correct vintage look and feel. And you can remove your tach cable and cable gearbox from the back of your generator. Get rid of those headaches once and for all!
Negative ground only.
Works with points or any electronic ignition module such as Pertronix or Flamethrower.
Install instructions included.
- There are two wires that are not accounted for on the instruction sheet, a black wire and a blue/white wire. These power the small red indicator light on the tachometer. Black wire is negative (ground) and blue/white wire is positive.
- If your car's original tachometer has an ignition warning light present, the LED red indicator light mentioned above is not compatible for that system. You must keep the original incandescent light installed (we usually tie these up behind the dash) to complete the charging circuit for the car.
No core required for this product. You can see this tach and our matching speedo installed in the photo in a walnut burl dash. (email if you would like a wood dash!). Our gauges are the same size as the originals - 4" including the bezel!
