Since 1957, AutoMeter has set the standard in performance, accuracy and durability with their legendary Tachometers. The absolute pinnacle of engineering and technology, it’s no wonder AutoMeter can lay claim to more motorsports victories than every other gauge manufacturer combined. The patented air core meter movement, wound in house to exacting standards, can move the needle from 0 - 10,000 rpm in 333 milliseconds. An inaugural inductee to the Hot Rod Speed Parts Hall of Fame, no other tachometer on the market has had anything approaching its impact on professional racing. Built for a lifetime of service under the harshest conditions, this is the no compromise tach for no compromise builds. When you’re ready for the best, there isn’t another choice.

Will this tach work in a 86 Buick GN? Do I need any adaptors?

Asked by: Erds
Thank you for your inquiry. The 5795 will work on your Grand National without modification. You will obviously need to calibrate to 6 cylinder following the included instructions.

Hi, I currently bought a car that had this tac in it, but it will not light up but does work and i was wondering what I could do to fix that. Thank you

Asked by: Deej
Hi Deej, thank you so much for contacting us. First off, make sure you've got power to the white wire coming from the tach. That typically goes to the headlight switch and lights up the tach when power is applied. If that checks out, it may be as simple as needing a new light bulb. The little rectangle on the shield on the front of the tach is the light socket. Give it a 1/4 turn counterclockwise to remove it. It takes a #86 bulb which should be readily available at any auto parts store. Hope this helps, if you've got any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact our tech team here: http://www.autometer.com/resources/index/ask_a_question
