    I bought a 87 mustang gt today and when you turn on the key the tach goes straight to 4k rpm without the car even being on. I did notice that when i turned on the lights that the tach went down to 3200. The engine was replaced so I don't know where to even start. Thanks!

    I have a 1966 a-code with an original rally pac tach and clock. Last instrument I need to get working properly is the tach. for what ever reason, it is reading VERY high. at idle it starts at 4500-5000rpm when its running at about 600-700 in reality. the needle goes up if you rev it up, so its...

    I've been trying to finish up my 289 EFI swap and im running into some tunning issues. besides my fuel delivery being off causing the idle rpm to be super low and rough, my tachometer is bouncing after the vehicle stalls. after it stalls the tach needle bounces back and forth from 0 to7 and...

    I have a 1966 coupe 289 and I just bought a Scott Drake rally pac and I am having problems with the Tach not working with my HEI distributor. Is there a way I can make my the Tach work with a GM style HEI distributor or do I have to switch it out or is there a tac box I can buy to make the tac...
  9. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hi there! :) Our 2005 V6 with 90K miles has a tachometer that works (well it moves) initially upon acceleration although I know it is not accurate. Then when cruising along, it will just drop to zero and stay there. Intermittently, it will begin to work again however very low of the actual...

    As far as to my knowledge, my 1995 ford mustang has an AODE auto transmission in it, computer controlled, which takes reference of ECM Signals of Tach Speed, and TPS to shift right. How (if i have a carbed V8 under the hood) do i get the transmission to still shift properly if its not got the...

    I just bought a Phantom 5" Autometer tach and I'm in the process of installing it. So far I've routed the green wire to the coil, and found a ground for the black wire underneath the dash. Now comes the difficult part. I need help finding a 12v ignition power source for the red wire, and I need...

    Hi there, I was wondering if someone could tell me a bit about the factory options for the dash instruments. I have speedo, clock, oil, coolant, fuel. was thinking of putting a tach in but not sure if I can just swap 1 or how easy they are to find? Thanks for any advise

    I am new to the boards and I recently purchased a 68 mustang with 302 3 on the floor. This mustang like many of that age didn't come with a tachometer. The previous owners installed a MSD 5 box. I recently installed a plantronic points conversion. The tach never read correctly and would...

I was careful with all the needles putting them in the same positions they were in when i took them off but now...

    I have a 66 mustang, and I have all the regular gauges. However I would really love a tachometer, I have no desire to modify the existing gauges I either wanted to add one on the steering column or add one to the pillar. So here are my questions based on that. 1. Where can I find the...

    My stock in-dash tach will sit around 2500-3000 RPM at idle even though the car is not idling nearly that high, but the tach will never go lower than that until it goes back to 0 when i turn it off. When i am driving, it will move, but it will still never go below around 3000 RPM. Is there any...

    I have a Tach and I was thinking of putting it above the gauges on the dash. But I'm not sure if the plastic there is to thin to hold it. Suggestions?

    Ok- I just got an aftermarket tach and have no idea how or where to hook it up- I have a distributor setup with electronic coil- I am also needing a new alternator- what amp rating is suggested for a 289 with AOD and no accessories except cd player. Should I replace alternator harness as well...

    Need some tachometer help I purchased a used 1965 6000rpm Shelby tach. 3 wires (blue, red, and black). I figured blue is the light, red dist side of coil and black would be ground so installed this way as stated above. Car wouldn’t start but needle on tach moved as it was cranking over. Unhooked...
