Tachometers in EVs

dont think it would cause a problem dont try and run it on 96 v though
the sensor would mostprobably only want 1 or 2mm clearance unless you use an industrial type proximity switch
Have you thrown the dizzy out ? check it

Tachometers in EVs

Im Guessing you would require 4
you need to look in the distributer
This was a carby engine with electronic ignition ?
you would need to try and see if the output from the trigger would operate the tacho as it would most probably be connected to the neg on the coil

Tachometers in EVs

Gday Plugger,
when making the coupling between the motor and box i have machined teeth into this for a proximity switch to read so you may need 4 teeth for a 4 cylinder etc check the crank trigger or dizzy for the pulses required??
