What wiring harness does this come with or I would need to buy?

Asked by: Keith45
Hello, Thank you for your question. This gauge does not come with wiring. You will have to provide your own along with spade connectors in order to apply power, ground, lamp, and signal. You can also use P/N: 3299 instead of supplying your own spade connectors.

Some Retailers claim this tach will work on 6V or 12V.  Others claim 12V or 16V.  What is the truth?  I need to use it in a 1955 Ford Thunderbird which still has the original 6V Positive-Ground system.  Will the Auto Meter 88088 tach work in my car?  

Asked by: Stingray
Hello, thank you for reaching out to us. 880088 is compatible with 12v and 16v applications. Unfortunately, it will not work in your application.

Hi Joseph. Thanks for the reply. I will wait for the cup to be available so I can ensure it will look right in my coupe. Will they appear on the website soon?, are any pictures available yet?

Asked by: Lyall
Hi Lyall, they will be up on the website as soon as they are available. As of this moment in time, I unfortunately don't have an exact date for you. They will look exactly like the existing cups, just very slightly smaller: Hope this helps!
