Nothing tacky……….


XMAS finally arrived for me – arriving in the mail last week was my 1972 Stewart Warner pedestal tachometer.

Spent today fitting it up and it works a treat directly off the Crane Hi-6 ignition box . 

I made up a bracket from some metal strap and a plastic base –  the strap slides under the crash pad and the base is screwed to the strap and mounted on a double sided adhesive tape – thus avoiding cutting into the crash pad.

I knew the old factory tach was not reading correctly because the rev limiter on the Hi-6 was cutting in well before the indicated RPM. Hopefully the SW tach will prove a little more accurate.
