Was tired of the unreadable stock rpm,. Has this one laying around. I know it's not stock but i can remove it very quickly if needed.






Plus, after 500 miles on the engine, i started to work on it. Revlimiter is now up to 6200 rpm, timing is 20 initial and 12 mecanical. Nice steady idle a 800 rpm. Did Wake up the beast, run like hell, no traction in first and second gear. Will be looking for slick...

Do you have a minimum slip or something of the kind or just an open rear?

Maybe Mickey Thompson or something of the kind, just look for a soft rubber compound or keep your foot away from the gas pedal...which is not an easy thing to do.

It's not attached in the picture. Have to buy a 5" hose clamp, will be covered by shrink tubing as i don't want to scratch the steering column paint.

Looks good Phil, that tach sure brings memories of the old days.
I think I had a tach like that in all my cars over the years and the thing is you could see it in plain view. cheers

That's exactly why i'm using it. Factory tach is almost useless

That is the exact same Tach, that I have in my Duster. This is why I was asking about installation, I used the hose clamp. I just don't like how it looks.

Could you not do the same thing with a very heavy zip tie?

I believe that sun and heat will make the zip tie get brittle and break

Possibly but my car is only in the sun when I'm driving it so not many hours of sunlight each year. I guess a person could replace it once a year just to be sure. On the other hand zip ties are a common fastener for wiring on farm equipment and some of them have been exposed for years with no issues. I'm pulling my steering column this winter to restore it and was going to replace the gear clamp with a zip tie but I think the shrink wrap idea has some merit also. Likely can't get a zip tie as tight as a gear clamp.
