Mk1 Escort tacho

Recommended Posts

hey guys,


i have a MK1 escort with a 6 dial dash. Link g3 with g4 firmware running a turbo sohc2000.

question is the tacho had a inductive loop that the power wire to the coil would normally run through.

this is how the tacho recieved its signal. is there a way i can replacate this by triggering some sort of solid state relay powering

a resistor through the inductive loop? or am i way off the mark.


Cheers Jason

Didnt it take a neg trigger off the coil like most rev counters ?


What ignition setup are you using now ?


And have you tried simply inputting an aux out signal to the tacho input ?


Whilst not ecu specific, you could ask over on the Turbosports Forum. Lots of Mk1 Escort users there, and I'm sure someone has come across this before

nah, well not my one, it has a loop wire that you unplug and wrap around the power feed to coil then re connect.

im using single coil with dizzi running from link.

it needs to replcate a load simular to a coil to make the tacho go.

yea i should ask in the uk, just thaught the people at link mite have come across this before.
