Alright guys, as discussed in this thread: http://www.gttalk.co...all-engine-393/

We want to try and gauge(no pun intended) interest in how many would be interested in a dash mounted analog tachometer for their tractor(s). As suggested by DH1 it would be better to take a poll so see the interest that would be there. Please only vote on the number of tachs that you would actually buy, not what you might buy.

Currently they have them for $85 a piece shipped. We would like to talk to the seller and see if there is a possibility for either a group buy or a gttalk member discount.

This is the tachometer in question. I would love to get one, but I have to pay off my loan for my last tractor acquisition.

That is the same size as a standard 2" gauge right?

It's designed to run on a single cylinder or a twin?

You need to add some more choices to your poll.
I can't afford one
I don't want one

2 1/8" hole This tach will not work on engines with a waste spark, which make a spark on every revolution. Only works on engines with points that fire every other revolution. Will work with Onan twins, and Kohler K singles, or any that work the points off the camshaft which open the points only once per revolution.

Get them to put "GTtalk" in it some where, cut a real good deal with them somehow, sell them here and take the profit for the Forum.

Instructions say single cyl. for battery ignitions that fire every 2nd revolution.

I tried for a couple weeks to find something that would work. The only option I found close was to import and I never did that before and don't think I would want to try. I know my luck and it wouldn't be the tachs that got imported and my money would be gone LOL.

I think it would be awesome to have some gttalk logo'd tachs.

I will add the can't afford one unless it was cheaper option. The I don't want one option can be remedied by not voting LOL.

For those with a waste spark you can use a harley twin tach, they have a waste spark as well... or so I'm told.

I just bought a tach for my MF2655 project. I hope it will work, or I may be in the market.

Be nice if they had a switch inside to select spark every rev. or spark every 2nd rev. like the old car tachs. had 4 6 8 cyl.
