Has anyone used something like this on their T or other application that Rpm's is important?
I am in need of a universal type tach for lawnmowers,and cars and what not and this is reasonable in price and looks like something I could use.The shipping time is no concern. I bought a clock mechanism from them and it came just as it was promised. Almost a month after purchase.
that looks good I think I will buy 1 also. that will be handy for a lot of things. thank you for the tip Mack
Garrett Green runs a Tiny Tach. in the Montana 500. It is an induction tach, it requires no batteries, has two wire leads one ground, and one that wraps around a spark plug wire.
There are Chinese knock-offs of the Tiny Tach that can be had for substantially less money - there are a lot of them on eBay.
Harbor Freight also sells a photo tachometer.
The Tiny Tachs DO have an internal battery which you can't replace when it goes dead - you just throw the tach in the garbage then.
I have one like that, works good. Came with a couple of strips of sticky back reflective tape that you cut off a small piece and stick onto the shaft or pulley that you want to measure the speed of.
I see that one uses 3 X AA batteries, mine uses 1 X 9 volt battery.
