Re: Can my tach be repaired

Did you already check the wires and circuit board? Maybe even install a temporary jumper wire from coil to tach just to make sure... Isn't there an instrument fuse, as well??? Just spit ballin' here...

Just checking... You measured the tach input by probing the stud and nut above the tach, right? I've never measure it w/ a meter. Didn't know you sees 12V. But I suppose it is some kind of pulsing signal and could be "caught" at the 12V level? Thinking out loud again... lol
