R32 Tacho Problem

Recommended Posts

I swapped a set of grey series 2 gauges into my series 1 instrument cluster instead of the blue ones.

Everything is working great except the tacho flickers occasionally.

I want to swap the grey face back onto my original blue tacho but I don't know how to remove the needle and refit it in the same position.

Does anyone know how this is done?

move the needle fully clockwise until it stops. then continue rotating clockwise to loosen the needle. do the same anti clockwise and do this a few times. then get a fork and GENTLY lift the fork until the needle comes off. the shaft should remain in the tacho mechanism.

Have you done this yourself?

How do you know the needle is zeroed when you refit it?

    • Interesting, i thought inconel had superior strength properties when subjected to extreme heat. My mates newphew says Monash got a million dollar EOS printer thats printing in Ti and Inconel and SS etc Apparently the kids are trying to figure out how to steal and or buy powder to make their own things after hours.  Apparently one of the cooler things theyve done this side of the world is making some really efficient w2A heat exchangers in 3d, apparently these things are almost twice as efficient as conventional ones. Cant remember the price per kilo for the metals but it aint cheap and its rather slow to make stuff but i thought cool nonetheless. The future of ICE? I think that will depend heavily on bio-fuels and or how EVs are going. California wont allow Chinese or Korean EVs one of the two cant remember - are not allowed to be parked in underground carparks -what a PITA
    • Sorry this happened @Zabuza. Not much we can do unfortunately, looks like the IP's used were in the states. The account has been banned but not deleted so we still have access to the PM's if we need them. We will be putting a PM restriction on all accounts until they've posted 15 times. Hopefully will help us weed out any more scammers as the SAU'ers will be prompt to report any dodgy posts. 
    • If you are buying new, just get a spool kit, but better yet ask your engine builder what they like to use. I go with CP because my engine builder told me to. I also went Nitto I beams and CA625 rod bolts because my engine builder told me to. Research shows that's a strong rod/piston combo, but that's a 4 cyl trying to make more power than you air aiming for so the HP/L equation is worse. Have a quick look on marketplace at least, you would be surprised what stuff comes up for dirt cheap.   
    • True. Whats some good pistons to go with? Was looking at Spool Imports
