i have a 91 s10 , with no tach, currently my dash is out and it may or may not be a good oppurtunity to put in a tach. how hard is it and what would i need besides the tach itself. is there a kit?
hell yes folks.....this 'un here is one smart cookie:thumbup:goatpounder said:there is no kit that I am aware of. If you get an autometer tach it will have instructions. You can go to the autometer site to find out what wires to hook the sender to. If the older models are the same as the newer ones (ie. ignition) then they have to do something to the tach before it will read correctly. If anyone reading this has seen where I have given any wrong info or knows more about the subject then please correct me. It is an extremely easy install.:thumbup:
thanks for your help i think i have a project next weekend for my truck thanks for your help :thumbup:SummerWolf said:yes you are, there should be a wire that you tap into to cause the tach to work....all the trucks have the tach wire, some just aren't connected. Just find that wire, ground, and the power thats hot when the engine is on and you're done.
