I don't know if you can still get these or not, but back in the day we used to remove the tachometer and lube the head with dry graphite we used to have a little ball that we put the graphite in and screwed it on to the cable threads and pushed the graphite into the tachometer, i would think you could make one out of a turkey baster and a hose clamp, you can get the graphite at most any hobby shop......HAVE FUN

Sometimes its the cable not the tach making noise, if you could take the cable off the back of the tach and lubricate it that might help

    Very likely the cable spinning and squealing away inside the tubing - Thank YOU!

My 1981 corvette tach quite working how do I get working again?


1981 Corvette has an electical tachometer that is driven by impulses from the distributor. First, check for blown fuses, next make sure the tach wire is plugged into the distributor. Next bypass silver tach filter or capacitor located by manifold to see if the tach moves at all. If these steps do not reveal a change in tach operation, then the most obvious next step is to remove the tachometer and get a new board for the tachometer. Unscrew and remove cluster lens and then unscrew tach bezel, and gently pull out the tach noting position of insulators. I believe these boards are available still at local autoparts locations. Replace board, note position of insulators and reinstall tach, bezel and lens. Old corvette are cool and are pretty easy to work on! Should be fixed, enjoy!

What year is this engine? and ci


From this chart - I think you may be misreading the number - 3970010 is possibly the actual number: Which makes the engine pretty old 68-72 350 V8 - 4 bolt main. I included past this number so that you can see that the number you posted doesn't actually exist. And thus my conclusion that the 9 is most likely a 0. Hope this helps. 3970010 350 69 Corvette late 69,4 bolt main 3970010 302 69 Camaro Z/28,Late 69, 4 bolt main 3970010 350 69-79 Truck 2&4 bolt main 3970010 350 69-79 Pass,Chevelle,Camaro,Nova,MonteCarlo 2&4 bolt main 3970010 350 70 Corvette 300,350,370 HP 4 bolt main 3970010 350 71 Corvette 270,330 HP 4 bolt main 3970010 350 72 Corvette 200,255 HP 4 bolt main 3970014 350 69-77 Pass,Chevelle,Camaro, Nova,MonteCarlo 2 or 4 bolt main 3970014 350 69-79 Truck 2 or 4 bolt main 3970014 350 72 Corvette late &undefined;72,200 HP,255HP 4 bolt main 3970020 307 68-73 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova 3970020 307 69-73 Truck 3970024 307 69-73 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova,Truck 3992386 327 68-69 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova,Truck Large Jounal

Speedometer and tach gauges pegged


Heres the bad news, I owned this model before and had the same problem, I was told by the dealership this is a common problem in this year model, the only solution is replacement of the dash assembly for the speed and tach, the problem is, its expensive, as much as $500 a few years ago, I purchased a GPS for $100 that tracks my speed, and found it to be extremely accurate, so this is a cheap fix to track your speed, as for the tachometer, I just lived without mine.

How do i wire a smiths tachometer in a triumph spitfire 1500


easy... remove the mechanical tach and fit the light from the old one to the new eletric tach. Next run a wire from the back of the tach connection that looks like a small pole and run that to your ignition coil - negative side. Also make sure the ground wire (black) is mounted to one of the install bracket posts that hold the tach in place behind the dash.

I have a 1991 camaro and my tach wont work .it tays stuck at around 4500 rpm and goes u from there.is it grounded out maybe?


I had the same problem with the tach on my 92 Camaro. Tried the resistor fix but it didnt work. Finally found a tach board at the junkyard that worked for about a year.
I found a new replacement tach board. Only had it for about a week but it seemed to fix the problem! Hurray!!

Tachometer is not working


please rate highly if this helps.

Check fuse #37, 10 amp yellow in fuse panel on dash.

The camshaft sensor in the distributor sends the tach signal to the instrument cluster. wire is BU = Blue?

1988 Ferrari 328 gts tachometer quit working.


The Tach is a tricky thing and sometimes just goes out. If all the other lights, etc....work and the tach is connected to the sensor, I suspect the Tach is bad.
