This tach has just started to bounce ahead a couple of hundred rpm at idle. It is ok above 1200rpm. It was ok for for at least 8-9 years. I have Crane ignition distributor and fireball coil pn a 331 SBF.

whats a good way to mark redline on these? do you guys offer anything to do that like a transparent vinyl decal set ?

Asked by: cj599
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have any type of decal or auxiliary indicator you could use with this gauge to mark red line. You would need to come up with your own method/material for doing that if you wanted to.
