V8 tach mod

Postby ColinOpseth » Sun Feb 10, 2008 12:39 pm

Here's an image demonstrating how to convert your 4-cylinder tach to v8. Thanks djv8ga for the image.

Later,
Colin

'72 Vega with '93 Camaro LT1/M29 T56/12 bolt 3.31. 16" IROCs all around. Sanderson headers into duals with an H-pipe and Flowmasters. It's loud but at least it's faster than your grandma's Buick. pwned.

Is that just for the Vega? Didn't the cars that came with optional 6 and 8 cylinder engines have something on the back to switch? Similar to the jumper on a hard drive.

Thanks for posting this; I have an old, yellowed, hard to read photocopy of it from "back in the day" that another Vega enthusiast gave me 20+ years ago. Now I can modify the 4cyl. tach instead of using one of the v8 Monza ones that I have with the ridiculously low redline!
The "fleet"-
77 Vega Estate wagon- project(someday)will have TPI305/T-5, S-10 spindles/axles
72 Vega HB Drag Car -383/'Glide/9"(9.35@146.19)(5.94@117.28 1/8th)
76 Vega GT- 400/4spd/9" retired from active duty(rusty)
03 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (work truck/parts hauler)
04 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (retired)
06 Haulin' 20ft enclosed car transporter
93 Suburban- 350/4L60(retired)
00 Saturn SW2- wife's car
01 Saturn SC2- younger son's project
00 Saturn SL2- daughter's car
98 Saturn SW2- spare
and 3 more Saturn "parts cars"
Note- the very act of listing all of these has made me realize I have some kind of problem.....
