Thread: Tach Question

  1. #1

    Question Tach Question

    Okay, about 2 months ago my original tach died, just stopped working while driving. So I checked all the plugs and connections and everything seemed to be plugged in, I replaced the tach yesterday with another stock tach out of my friends 83 GT, it is a good known working tach, and nothing.

    I guess what im asking is there any fuses, circuit breakers, relays, etc in the tach circuit? or where could I possibly start looking? wiring colors? I dont really want to put an aftermarket tach in. Its just the Stock duraspark ignition system on my 83 5.0 Capri.

    any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Have you switched out the duraspark box? If what you say is true, that would be an easy test.

    I will have to set aside some time to scan all of the EVTMs I have and post them in the library...

    Say, I know this is old, but you wouldn't happen to have the LTD LX EVTM, would you? I am trying to swap the LTD LX instrument cluster into my SSP basic dash.
    I just need the pages with the instrument cluster terminal diagrams and the tachometer diagram. thank you

    I have posted question on LTD LX facebook page and nobody there seems to have a LX specific EVTM. Also searched this forum, read many posts, but the LTD LX is a niche model, so very difficult to find literature. thanks.

    Glue the needle over to redline - at least it won't look sad anymore. And if anyone asks, it died happy.
