GM STYLE RETRO SUPER CAR YENKO COPO HOOD TACH HIGH QUALITY AND VENT LINE KIT. New factory style hood tach now available from The Parts Place. Don't confuse our tach with the others out there that have copied our white outer shell.
Also includes - a harness and installation instructions(for GTO and Buick). Competitors don't have a backlit pointer design, making ours superior to the others out there.If you always like the look of a hood tach, but thought it was silly to bolt a tach that said Pontiac on your Chevelle, now you can! The face of this tach doesn't have a name on it so you can use this on pretty much any muscle car out there.
This tach works with factory points and GM HEI distributors, will work with aftermarket ignitions only if you use a module (available through most speed shops). A few quality points with our tach: 1 Has clear glass lens (not plastic that will discolor or scratch) 2 Uses a GM style tach harness (for GTO and Skylark, not generic universal like the competitors) 3 Top and bottom are screwed together like factory (not silicone glued together like the competitors) 4 100% like original in fit and finish 5 Can be connected to the dash light to be dimmed 6 Made in the USA with all new parts.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 kit includes the tach, and vent line kit at a discounted price. 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. Has been serving the muscle car industry since 1990, taking care of the past and present to preserve the future.
