Contact 'Fester', he has a microtach in his s12 and has the tacho hooked up and working I think. He is quite good on electronics and the microtech, from memory there is some trick to getting the s12 tach to read accurately with a microtech that he knows, (use the member search facility to find his profile so you can pm him)


:) /me shakes head sadly at poor gerry... :orly:

As it happens my tacho isn't hooked up (it was with the old Digi, but not the MT8), but that's mostly because I'm a lazy bum. There's a bunch of other electrical stuff that's died or is on the way out, but I'm too damn lazy to fix that as well. I should take a couple of days off work and pull her apart a bit I suppose, but its so hard to find care factor :P

I'm thinking about making the trip up in 1-2 weekends kingos, I'll let you know. Always good to see another gazelle :)
I used to spool, but now I drive a Barina :/

Sorry to raise an old thread but i wonder if some electronics wonder boy has an answer for this one. I have an RB25 neo running an EMS 8860 whats the chances of the stock tacho running on A 6 cylinder??

might get away with using 4 diodes not 6... if you use 6 you'll have rev's another 1/3rd higher than what they actually are.

But i dont know how effective that would be.

I have discovered the secret. Early import v6 Maxima's have a circuit board nearly exactly the same as the Gazelle, i will be using the board and keeping my motor and needle. As the new board is slightly larger i will run it remotely and this will also enable me to adjust the trim pot to get it as accurate as possible.
