Driving aftermarket tach with eecV

Unread postby Mnorman1964 » Tue Nov 05, 2019 2:20 pm

I have an eecv 2000 model with an rpm out pin that's not being used. Does anyone know if that is compatible to drive an aftermarket tach?

You would need to ask the tach manufacturer if their product supported the eec tach signal.

You would be wise to put a multimeter on that tach pin to check for a signal.

Another interface solution.
