Is there a way to hook this with out the impulse wire running thru the fob [ it has inductive pick up ] Can you go direct to the coil post Hooking up to Mag 44

Asked by: Baldie
Thank you for your question. The old version of this tach did have an inductive pickup wire, the new version does not and only has a green wire coming out the back for the signal. Either way, we recommend contacting MSD and letting them know which one you have and asking how they recommend hooking up the gauge as they know best and could offer additional insight we cannot.

hi i'm ron spencer, we bought a racecar and it came with a 6601 autometer tach in it. it works good but they cut the recall and memory dial off and taped it up. would like to know the color code to those wires to make work. ant ideas???

Asked by: big ron
Hi Ron, thank you for contacting us. We do offer that switch and there was a design change at some point that changed the amount of wires, but here is a direct link to the instructions showing the different wiring options: https://www.autometer.com/media/manual/2650-578X.pdf

Can this tach be used one a single cylinder engines?

Asked by: Adam454
Hi Adam, thank you so much for contacting us. Unfortunately, this is an automotive tach and is not compatible with single cylinder engines. We focus on automotive, marine and motorcycle applications; there really isn't anything in our lineup directed towards small engines. The ignition systems are very different and require a different type of circuit design for a tach to read correctly. Sorry for the bad news.
