sun super tach

1989 v2500

Any pics/ideas on tach mounting locations. I was going to strap it to the column like we did when we were kids but there is too much stuff on the column to get a hose clamp around. thought about the dash, or getting a small tach and installing it where there is a blank under the volts.

Re: sun super tach

My current truck has one strapped to the column. I like it there, easy to see when needed. My old truck had one that the previous owner mounted on the dash. I didn't really like it there, and it also required screwing it into the expensive dash pad. So I wouldn't recommend that. When I redo my gauges, I'm going to put the tach where the gas gauge is, and then move the gas gauge to the blank.

I think they look cool strapped to the column.

What year truck do you have? The column was my first choice but no where can i get the hose clamp around it with out something in the way. (key, blinker, tilt)

It's a 1978. I don't have tilt, but I have a lot of room on my column. I imagine if it did have tilt it would still fit. The clamp is probably about a half inch wide, and I have the tach as close to the gauge bezel as it can comfortably go.
