Is the needle supposed to sweep to midrange on power up like the speedometer?

Asked by: Paul V
No, the tachometer will simply go to zero.

Good day. Is it necessary to purchase the connector and terminals part number 3299 separately for the tachometer installation? Or is item 3299 included with the tachometer? Thank you for your reply, best regards Petr

Asked by: Peter Simice
#3299 is not supplied with this tachometer. If you would like a one piece plug in connector for the back of your tach, 3299 is the correct piece to purchase.

Can the bulb be changed to match the dash lights?

Asked by: diz357
This gauge style uses LEDs integrated onto the circuit board. The lighting cannot be changed.

Is it possible to have a custom built version of this made, I need one to read 0-4500 instead of 0-8000 and work in increments of x100 instead of x1000

Asked by: Shane
Thank you for the question. Unfortunately, our American Muscle series gauges are not available to customize.

why does my tach flutter periodically talked to one tech said put 10,000 OHM in the wiring

Asked by: morton
Hi Morton, thank you so much for contacting us. There could be a number of reasons for a flutter, but the most common one is electrical noise. This can be caused by things like poor grounds, inadequate shielding on ignition components or even just a hot rodded ignition system or module. It's very similar to hearing an alternator whine through a radio. Because we've engineered our tachs to be hyper responsive and quick reacting, they have the capability of picking up that electrical noise or interference when it's present in your vehicle's electrical system. Adding a 10k resistor to the signal wire is an easy, inexpensive way to quiet down some of that noise without adding enough resistance to negatively affect the real world performance of the tach. You can see an example of this here: In some instances, really noisy ignition systems (aircooled VW's with hot rod ignitions are infamous for this) may need a bit more than just some resistance. For those instances, we offer a tach filter that does a great job: Hope this helps!
