Hi all
Does anyone have any photos of a T tacho set-up?
I cam across a Stewart Tacho for sale but have never seen one in a T.
It looks very similar to the Stewart Speedo. It apparently ran off the fan belt(?)
Thanks again
Glenn

I have seen tachs driven off the back of the generator on some tractors. It is possible to buy ratio changing gear boxes for cables that should make it possible to calibrate it correctly.
If you are running a distributor ignition then you can run a electronic tach from there. I wonder if it would be possible to run a electronic one off of the timer using the buzz coils?
Maybe Ron Patterson would know?
I won't ask WHY?

I bought one of those new ones from Equus (sp) at Wallyworld that's supposed to work on engines from 1 to 12 cylinders and will take their input from either a sparkplug wire or from a typical modern ignition coil. About this time my garage got very cold and I decided my T-ing was done for the year. I'll see how it works in the spring. I'm guessing it won't just because it's me trying it. The pickup from the sparkplug adapter is shielded but it may still not help get rid of the hash ..... only 3 months to go to find out.

They have printed manuals online for their products.

Regards,
Garnet
