Re: 82-88 tach fix

Yes; it will work on MOST model tach's.
I have fixed 3 various year model tach's.
I have an easier way though. When I get home i will take pics.
It involves tracing the wires from the Resistor-Pack to the edge of the board;
where there is MUCH more room to solder a resister.
Just clip the leads of the chip and trace the PCB-traces over to the side.
Scratch the coating off of the trace and solder correct resistor there.

Re: 82-88 tach fix

tach board looks different for earlier models; but the same FIX works.

Re: 82-88 tach fix

Sorry, dont have a clue bout the filter.
All 3 of the ones i fixed were the same problem.
Resister pack
symptoms: tach pegs; or tach is wildly reading high
All 3 were the resistor in my case.
mike
BTW...all 3 were older tachs in my case.
one '89, and 2 '86

Re: 82-88 tach fix

I can sell you one i fixed for $45 + core. I do a professional job and I also replace the capacitors and carbon resistors that can cause a tach to malfunction.

thanks, Greg

Don't deal with Buloushie, This scum bag ripped me off. Hes going to take the money that he stole from me and buy a part from you. If he even pays you. This is fair warning for anyone dealing with this piece of sh*t.

You've created your own replacement board with new components?
Could you post a pic please? I'm sure several would be interested in seeing it.
Thanks

Iíve sold about 20 without a single complaint. I calibrate them on my test bench, but some may need slight adjustment. I build in a potentiometer for fine adjustment. It comes with a 1 year warranty.
