This heater vacuum hose to tach came out in 1970 due to GM having problems with the tach fogging up. GM's fix was to connect a vacuum hose to the bottom of the tach to the heater box on the firewall. What this allowed was to keep warm air blowing into the tach at all times. The biggest problem was they built up condensation inside the tach, causing the movement to fail. This tach will work with factory GM points or factory HEI.It may need a tach adapter when using this on MSD or after market ignition. Tachometers will work with factory GM points or factory HEI ignition. When using an aftermarket ignition system likes MSD, Accel, Patronix, ect. A lot of these systems generates higher output voltage to the tach lead than what a factory GM tach can handle. Factory GM tachs can operate on voltage ranging from 11.2 to 14.7 Most aftermarket ignition systems generate over 18 volts.
Please note this hood tach is only compatible with 8 cylinder cars. They will not work on 4 or 6 cylinder cars.
