Tacho with electronic ignition.

Postby midget » Fri May 10, 2019 8:00 am

I have an MGB rev counter which I am fitting to my project. Previous owner fitted Accuspark ignition, so need a wiring diagram please for I understand that the conventional method will not work?

Thanks for that, I think I will revert back to conventional points/condenser set up.

I would suggest that you contact the distributor doctor for your points and condenser. The country lanes are littered with copies from eBay.

I concur with 'paul300358'. The good doctor's points and condensor are top quality and will give you a super-reliable set-up which will give long and reliable service. I wouldn't use anything else now.

Yes, absolutely. I already have their/his kit on another A series powered Marina. Works beautifully now.

I fitted a cheap 2" E-bay tachometer (the one in the middle of the three) to my Traveller with Accuspark, and it works a treat! :D I connected the tacho input (green wire) to the switched side of the ignition coil (blue wire from the Accuspark).
