Will I need anything else to install this tach #5990 to a corvette LT1 in a 64 Belair?

Asked by: BelairBrad
Thank you for your question. Based on your ignition system you may need our 9117 tach adapter. That would be the only additional accessory you may need.

Will I need any conversion parts for this tach #5990 to use on LT1 corvette engine installed in 64 Belair?

Asked by: BBelair
Thank you for your question. When it comes to tachometers and the tach signal, the engine does not matter so much, it is really determined by the ignition system. If you have a single coil or a computer/box with a tach output, you can get a signal directly from that. If you have coil packs or multiple coils, you will need our 9117 tach adapter.

What would I need to do to change the color of the led bulb in this tachometer?

Asked by: Blm21
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the ES series is only available with the red back lighting and there is no way to change it to a different option.
