Nice but....

August 19, 2010
nice retro, works well but the INNER glass face is smudged and when backlit at night hard to read. Can't be disassembled without return to factory.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Auto Meter 9117 Tachometer Signal Adapter, Distributorless Ignition
(Part #1829117)
                        

If you have a modern engine, chances are it doesn't have a distributor. If you want to add a tach you're out of luck, unless you buy this neat little box that creates a signal that the tach can read. Simply wire into the power going to the coil pack. Allows any Auto Meter standard ignition tachometer or Digital Pro-Shift System gauge, tube, or controller module to be used on distributorless ignitions.

  • 12 volt
  • Works with 4, 6 or 8 cylinder engines
