I asked this question on the old BBS w/ no responses. Anyway, I hate not having a working tach on my dashboard because it's made for a stock 6 cyl and I have a V8. Is there a tech article anywhere for changing out the internals of a tach so it can read a V8? I don't want to buy a new tach unless it looks exactly like the stock one.


Has anybody installed Phantom guages from AutoMeter into their YJ? Are the Tach and Speedo in a YJ 3.75" and all the other guages 2 5/8"? For the smaller guages I have the option of electrical or mechanical. I'll assume I need electrical, but how hard would it be to wire these things in place. I really don't know a whole lot when it comes to vehicle electrical systems except that when the battery is disconnected nothing works.

Go to and check out Chris Waterman's YJ. he did the tach mod you're talking about. I still need to do mine.
