Using a 12 V tach for a 6V 1600


Recommended Posts

Funny, just answered a similar question over on the UK '02 forum....


Yes it can be done and I would do the same for my '66 1600-2 when and if I get around to putting it back on the road. I actually called and talked with a shop about doing this. I bought an NOS 6V tachometer a few years ago and haven't tested it yet.... Jeff Goss put a 6V tach in his '67 and his RPM is a bit off, keeps meaning to send it out for calibration.

The Porsche 356 crowd does it all the time.....

Palo Alto Speedometer is one I know of that'll do this.


North Hollywood Speedometer is another.
