Is this gauge backlit? I am looking for a backlit not edge lit black faced tach in 2-5/8" size and which uses replaceable bulbs so I can match my LED dash lights.

Asked by: Krasniak
Thank you for your question. All our gauges are backlit. They are either perimeter incandescent lit, or they are through the dial LED lit. This gauge is perimeter incandescent lit. The Incandescent lit gauges can have their bulbs replaced, the through the dial LED lit gauges utilize LEDs embedded on the circuit board of the gauge so their lights cannot be changed.

Will this tach work with if directly connected to MSD 6A Ignition Tach Output without the tach adapter?

Asked by: coolwilliejoe
Thank you for your inquiry. As long as the tach out on your MSD is functioning normally, there should be no need for a tach adapter to operate the 2892.

Will this tachometer (Product # 2892) work with a 1997 Chevy S10 2.2L 4 cylinder , also will I need the Tach Adapter (Product # 9117)?

Asked by: GWB83
Thank you for your question. Tach #2892 will work with your transmission and you will not need to use our 9117 tach signal adapter.

I have this tachometer. It was made in 08 and looks like it has the 3211 light socket. Does that whole socket have to be changed to replace the bulb? I want to put an LED bulb in to match the rest of my dash.

Asked by: Chad Hurn
Thank you for your question. Yes, your tachometer uses a unique 3211 socket assembly. You do not have to replace the entire socket to replace the bulb. In fact, you should be able to access the bulb from the back without having to disconnect the socket assembly, and I would recommend not disconnecting any of the wires while replacing the bulb. You can replace that bulb with our #3288 white led or any of our colored T3 wedge LEDs. You can also use any 161, 193, 194, & 168 style wedge base bulbs. All you have to do to replace it is take the old bulb out and put the new bulb into the socket where the old bulb was.
