Default (really) Inexpensive Tachometer

For anyone interested, I snagged one of these tachs the other day on flea-bay. For about $12 shipped I figured I had nothing to lose. I was quite happy to find that it works like a charm. I have a pretty good ear for engines and a feel for where they are "comfortable" but I wanted to verify my RPMs and didn't have a bunch of spare cash to play with. I hooked this up this afternoon in less than 5 minutes and went cruising around my neighborhood and was pleasantly surprised! Not only did I verify my rpms on my cart for next to nothing, but I can use it on any small engine around the house if I need to.

Hi,

No idea what brand it is. It came in a white box with directions...no manufacturing info on it..but for 12 bucks shipped I don't really care as long as it serves my purpose.

I see that link went dead but the one Roady posted is the correct one...thanks Roady

SUPER COOL - Thanks for the link, with the new HEI and the muffler all BBQ'd out, my cart is running like a raped ape - this will def let me know when I'm pushing the limits .... Now I just need to find out what the limits ARE for an 88 2pg :)

I just ordered mine for $13.68. That includes shipping. I bought one very similar to this about eight years ago and it was $35.00. I really don't care much about the tach but I want the hour meter for oil changes. Thanks for letting us know about it.

Mine's an 89+1/2 PG2 (same as the 1988 ) which is slightly different than most other years of PG2 motors from what I've found. Slightly larger carb and different exhaust than the others.

I've got the service parts and owner/operator manuals both here and nowhere that I can see does it say anything about RPM. I have searched this forum and others and the consensus seems to be 4 grand and maybe a skosh more on occasion will be fine. That seems about right the way the motor sounds to me. Cruising around yesterday after hooking up the meter it showed me 3500-3750 average cruising RPM and nailing it at the bottom of a hill to climb it or rolling out down the back side hits maybe 4250 peak. Sounds to me like that 4 grand number is right on the money.

Is the tach backlit? I would like to be able to see RMS at night.
