I've been using impluse type rev counters - both direct connection and induction type - with electronic ignition - both optial and Hall effect - for a long time and haven't had that sort of problem.

Quoted from Rodger Howard, posted August 27th, 2010, 07:49:24 at here
I am about to set up the 'driving position' in my car.
Is the standard mini pedal box and accelerator pedal in a reasonably good position in a Marcos?

I had to do a bit of adjustment with the pedals as I was having trouble with hitting the accelerator when I wanted to brake

I ended up repositioning the pad on the accelerator and bending the pedal sideways a little. It now sits slightly lower than the other two pedals and I haven't had any problems with it.

The steering column is very close to the brake and clutch, may be a problem if you have big feet  

You may also wish to change the angles of the pads on the clutch and brake as they are designed for a higher seating position. I haven't done this yet.

Thanks they are very good points, particularly the angle of the clutch and brake pads.There also seems to be little other than fresh air for the front of the pedal box to connect to.
Admin, you must be lucky with your paticular tacho or not reving it very high.
They will indicate in many cases but not much more than waving hello.
As an Instrument maker for the past 25 years I have had many people who have had problems so much so that we have circuits made for all of the tacho's from the 60's and 70's to overcome the issue.
