    Default Tachometer Upgrades

    Are there any tach upgrades available?? I see some have used Autometer 3990's 5" units. However you lose the turn signals and high beam indicator and the tach is to large to fix the bezel. Any other choices or ideas???????

    You can always send yours off and have it modernized - works great once completed.

    I've used the speedhut 4" Gps speedo and tach. They have turn signal and hi beam indicators built in. Their system is excellent quality. And I'll never have to reach back in their like a contortinist and attach that dang speedo cable ever again!!!

    A friend (& member here) used Bob's Speedometer for his tach IIRC. He was pleased with the results, too.

    T-Man where did u get ur's moderenized, i'd like to look into that.

    ZK - I've seen the speed hut web site but was unaware they had a tach with built in indicators. Did the tach fit in the exisiting bezel? DO you have a part number.

    thanks for the infor.....

    I sent mine here.

    It cost $175.00 2 years ago. It has worked great ever since and will accept any kind of wave form (ignition) as input.
