    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tach Impressed with the quick processing and delivery of my order. I placed my order in the late afternoon and Jegs still shipped the same day. The tach feels hefty and has a quality look about it. The retro style was just what I was looking for to complement my '71 Dodge Sweptline. Making the electrical connections was a snap as the instructions are simple and clear. A good value for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT NOSTALGIA LOOK FROM THE 60 s Installed in my 56 Chevy on the steering column, running points type distributor but instructions show it is compatible with other systems, easy installation, up and running in an hour. Reasonably priced, highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like they should be made. Beautiful. I like mine so much that I bought one for a great friend to put in his first ever hot rod. He finally has time to find and build a car. I know that this will be the best looking tach for his new car, whatever it may be. It's a classic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like the 60's Just like the one I couldn't afford when in HS back in '63, except better. Simple 4 wire hook up, no external electronic box.. Would have liked the dash mount to be chrome plated and I wish the light was white, not green. An option would have been nice. Unit is sealed, so if the light fails.......??

    is this unit water resistant, can it resist rain? I'm thinking of using it on an old jeep.

    Does it need a sending unit like the originals

    Asked by: 406 Tom
    Hello, This unit does not require a sending unit like the originals and is updated with modern electronics to work with distributor and distributorless ignition systems. A signal converter is required for magneto and diesel applications.

    Asked by: THE ACE
    Hello, It can be used with a magneto but will require the use of a signal converter such as the MSD 8132.

    Its said to be modern electronics, however nothing is said if it will work with an MSD box. After all, most of us use an MSD nowadays so why is nothing said??

    Asked by: Irishblueyes
    Yes, this will work with the tach output of any aftermarket ignition box.
