Aftermarket Tach

Mike Ervin Update by: All of these gauges are in-dash units so I had to figure out how I was going to mount them. I have seen setups with all of them mounted on the face of the bezel, and also using the billet aluminum replacement bezel that you can buy from LMC. I just didn’t like the way it looked after you get them in. The gauges are tilted forward on the same plain as the bezel which makes it hard to see them. After a lot of thought I went ahead and ordered the gauges still not fully having made up my mind on what I was going to do. After I had them I started doing a little figuring. With some grinding and cutting I could mount them from behind the bezel which will look almost factory with a lot better gauges. Below is how I accomplished this.

Just a nudge is good for a quick 10 lbs. With this, I could hold the adjuster in the correct position and get a 17mm combination wrench on the nyloc nut. I found the 17mm socket and short extension I dropped down the front of the motor. I am glad I found it, as it made me kinda uncomfortable leaving a rather large hunk of metal floating around an open timing belt on an interferance motor.

Most of the factory gauges gave up the ghost long before I acquired the truck. The factory fuel gauge only kinda worked (when it reads 3/4 it was actually empty).

We have a Plymouth Valiant that we want to use in double duty on the street as a cruiser, and at the track as a bruiser. There is a lot at stake here—namely a hp low-deck Chrysler big-block stuffed with a lot of high-quality parts. The only real thing to decide with an Auto Meter tachometer is what features you want, what size you need, and what cosmetics you like. It also comes with basic mounting hardware to strap it to your steering column, dashpad, or instrument panel.

Models are also available for in-dash mounting without the cup or base. A small inspection hole in the rear allows the user to select a series of DIP switches for four-, six-, or eight-cylinder operation. Ours came set for 8-cylinder from the factory. You must remember to hook up the white dash light wire for this to operate.

Basically, the gauge has two mounting studs that get in the way of everything. Use a hacksaw to cut them off. Now the gauge should just press into the pod without any trouble. With the gauge in the pod, continue the wiring job. The sender wire and ground wire should already be attached on the chassis end.

Some late model vehicles use electronic sensors in their pressure and temperature senders for engine control functions. Before removing the original sender, we recommend that you contact your automotive dealer to be sure no critical functions will be disrupted. With pressure gauges it is beneficial to add a T-fitting to install your new gauge and to keep the warning light operational. This allows you to monitor the pressure and still have a warning light to indicate emergency conditions.

And largely because of the circuit design shortcomings, the best choice of gauge to monitor the electrical system is a “VOLT” rather than AMP gauge. A good explanation of the AMP vs. VOLT gauge may be found at in the Tech Tips / FAQ section of the web sight.

Dave King I was inspired to write this article because of the overwhelming help and support I got from fellow readers of Modularfords. Before I decided on doing this project I was a bit intimidated. I thought about doing this conversion last year but I decided against it because I thought it would be very involved and that a shop would have to do all the work. So I kept sticking clutches in it and wasting money. I approached this article a bit differently than any other article I have done before.

This is the first article that I really took almost a month to write. This article took about 3 weeks to write.

The FI version has a blind hole near intake 3 for the temp sensor II. If you use this head as part of your engine project you don’t have to worry about the hole because it’s blind. If you have the head from the 74 bus, then you’ll notice two holes on either side of the intakes. These are not breather openings to vent pressure from behind the valve cover. They are air injection holes to allow oxygen to be introduced into the exhaust stream to help burn unburned mixture after burning.

Two tubes were hooked up to those ports which lead to an air pump that way driven off the pulley. Removing the air pump is a good ideal because it’s overly complicated and not very effective. Some people rebuild their engine using these heads and have no idea why there is soot in the engine compartment or why it’s so noisy. The holes have to be plugged up after the pump is removed. Two tubes are screwed into the holes and they are difficult to remove sometimes without stripping the threads.

After removing the tubes you need to plug the holes and the best way to do it is with a 10×1 valve adjusting screw and some Loctite If the threads are in bad shape you will have to chase them with a tap to clean up the threads.

I bought a used AutoMeter tach from ebay, the oil, temp and volt gauges were budget units from Summit racing, and the MPH was displayed by a gps app on my phone.
