We still have the original six-circuit fuse panel with glass fuses—a less-welcome vintage feature of our 1968 Valiant that we hope to update soon, but for now it will work. Disconnect and discard this computer. The speedometer works off a small black cable,that run's from the back of the speedometer under the dash to the transmission even if the line looks good it can still be broken inside the line.
There is one other wire on the negative side, plus the wire for my tach. As engine rpm climbs, so does valvetrain inertia and friction. Hey Travis, I've had a few similar problems, that were answered on the tach Mfg's website. I recently picked up an Autometer electronic tach. Auto Meter also includes a small selection of colored filters that slip over the small serviceable bulb inside the gauge; these allow you to change the color of the light to match your needs. The computer will start from scratch again and perhaps correct something that created the problem.
We have a 1968 Plymouth Valiant that we want to use in double duty on the street as a cruiser, and at the track as a bruiser. The one on the left hops over to the other side of the engine bay and the one on the right feeds into a wiring harness close by. Once you have selected a mounting location, you can run the four wires that operate the tachometer. This is the side provides 12V only when the brake pedal is depressed. Be sure that wires are not in danger of heat, exhaust, or sharp edges.
I chose off the the steering column because hiding the wires was easy from there. It does have a - symbol on it, it's just hard to see under the wires. The new tachometers that are being sold today are mostly electric and very simple to hook up. Or is that what you mean? Louis has been very helpful so far but I think I am being a bit doff so I have put up these pics. A couple of the wire colors were different than what is listed, but I just used the connector numbers and everything works perfect! For the black ground wire just find a bolt somewhere either under your dash or in the engine bay that contacts real metal. My truck doesn't have this but I've got one in the mail that will be here tomorrow.
Ours came set for 8-cylinder from the factory. I can not get a signal. So I would therefor assume it is the negative wire on this plug that I tie into?

This should be connected to the battery + terminal with an 80-100A fuse or fusible link in between. Refer to your instructions to be sure of your wires.
Your coil is stock, when you say has nothing connected to it, you mean nothing but the tach wire right? Right now, I'm looking for What tach signal, a 94' Toy, factory tach is expecting. Step 1: Once you've picked out your Tach go ahead and mount it in the desirable place. I was hoping I could connect to the factory wire in effort to minimize another wire going through the firewall. This will be the wire that powers the speed sensor into the speedometer. I rolled the miles to match my actual mileage using the following link: The odomoter and Trip meter are not moving.
Connect this harness to the alternator. I also have an 82 non-sr5 model. The hard part is finding which pin-out slot is for the tac and merging it into the harness to make it plug and play. You currently have 0 posts. If anyone can verify this it would be appreciated.
A good tachometer has value in that it can maximize performance at the track, and help protect your engine investment from damage by over-revving. We highly recommend that all these parts are removed from the same vehicle. First of all, great write-up. Splicing into main cluster wires And connecting those to the new cluster I used 16 gauge wire I need to pull the piece that actually connects the wire to the oil sending unit from a junkyard. Hopefully the manual will do it for you! To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater.
My unit came with these. If so, where does it connect which plug number? Some aftermarket tachs require that you wire it a certain way for however many cylinders you have. Oct 10, 2009 If you have a 22r carbed then all 22r carbed engines from 1981-1995 will interchange. There is a lot at stake here—namely a 657hp low-deck Chrysler big-block stuffed with a lot of high-quality parts. Do you have to do all of the pin-outs before anything will work? Nor advancing and i cant figure out why.
Connect this harness to the alternator and route this harness if necessary to the driver side fender-well area. Find a tool similar to a dental pick. I tried to hook up the fuel gauge with the new pin-outs and nothing happened. It only has two terminals on either side of the main coil output to the distributor. A reminder that your email address on your account must be valid and working to receive the reset request. You need to go get a sending unit not for a light for the oil and put it in another spot in the block and run a wire from it to the gauge.
