I have the 2499 tach. It has the incandescent bulb. Can I install the T3 LED lamp instead of the incandescent. It appears it should work.
Thank you for your question. Yes, this will work.

I have four Autometer gauges. On 2421, 2532, and 2592, I am using red condoms on bulbs. Is there any way to change backlight on my 2499 tach to match? It did not seem that the bulb was as easiy accessible in the 2499 as it was in the other three. Thanks.
Thank you for your inquiry. The 2499 has a light twisted into the circuit board. To access the light, first remove the plastic cap on the back of the tach, then use a needle nose pliers to twist the light socket counter clockwise and pull backwards. The light will look like this: https://www.autometer.com/bulb-socket-twist-in.html

Will this tach work with a 0 to 5 volt pulse signal in place of a direct connection to the ignition coil? (Pulse width is approx. 100 microsec.)
Thank you for your inquiry. A 5 volt signal is right at the trigger threshold. Please contact our Tech Support directly for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org

How do you take the chrome bezel off the front of this gauge I would like the paint the hand black instead of the orange
Thank you for connecting with us. The bezel on the Traditional Chrome Series is a very rigid, chrome plated copper bezel that is machine pressed and crimped onto the instrument. There is no practical way to remove it and reinstall it without damaging it.
