Description
This compact and easy to install module will allow you to easily adapt AutoMeter tachometers and shift lights and many other aftermarket RPM-based devices on your alternator-equipped diesel or non-standard ignition gasoline engine. Equipped with a sensor which is mounted to the alternator casing, a one time setup calibration is accomplished via push button interface on the module to synchronize the alternator signal with engine crank RPM. Perfect for diesel performance applications looking to add a tachometer or upgrade from factory equipment and a great problem solver for engine swap builds in need of working instruments. Pair it with AutoMeter's low-rev tachometer models to complete your diesel-specific gauge installation.

DIESEL TACH ADAPTER is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sensor works fine, easy to install. Had to use a 1K pull up resistor for the adapter to work with a VDO tachometer gauge. A circuit diagram of the adapter o/p circuitry would have been helpful.

Questions

Do the tachs come with the pickups of the aultinator and do they work on all aultinators , do you have any with numbers up to 3000 with the big numbers and how much are they

Asked by: Delmer
Hi Delmer, thank you for the question. We have two tachometers that come with alternator probes and are designed for diesel trucks; models 2888 and 3788. The 9112 Diesel Tach Adapter will allow you to trigger any standard AutoMeter tachometer off you alternator. We have nothing in a 3000 RPM, but do offer several 6000 RPM options in both 3-3/8" and 5".

Hi, I have a 87 f250 ( was a 6.9 ) with a 95 PSD in it. The tach signals are not compatible from what i understand, and i cannot use the stock tach in my gauge cluster. if i installed this would it allow me to read the 95 PSD signal on my 87 tach?

Asked by: ferd
Thank you so much for contacting us. We engineered this module to drive AutoMeter tachs and it outputs a 12v square wave signal. While this will probably work with a lot of other tachs on the market, we haven't tested it in any applications other than with AutoMeter tachs. As such, I'd be hesitant to recommend it as a solution to drive your OEM tach. It's possible it might work, but we wouldn't be able to guarantee that it would. Sorry for the bad news.

Hi i was wondering how this would work without an alternator? I have a diesel pull truck amd i do not run a alternator

Asked by: Der3k
Hi Der3k, thank you for the question. Our 9112 Diesel Tach Adapter does require an alternator. For a pull truck application without an alternator, you may have to consider something like our model 6806: https://www.autometer.com/5-tach-6-000-rpm-w-mem-4-pulse-diesel.html

Will this work with a glowshift tachometers?

Asked by: 52 ih
Thank you so much for contacting us. We don't test any other gauges when developing our products and as such, would be unable to provide any assurances as to compatibility with an imported tach like that. Our tach adapter outputs a 12v square wave which in theory should work with any aftermarket tach, we just wouldn't be able to guarantee it. Hope this helps!

Asked by: Dmartinez1989
Thank you so much for contacting us. The mounting strap to secure the pickup to the alternator is indeed included. Hope this helps!

Hi  Do you make a 24 volt Autometer Diesel Tach Adapter  kit to suit old slow reving caterpillar engines.   1400 rpm max Thanks Jarrod

Asked by: Jarrod
Hi Jarrod, thank you so much for contacting us. Unfortunately, all of out tachs and tach accessories are designed to work with either 12v or 16v electrical systems. We do not currently have anything specific to 24v systems. Sorry for the bad news.
