Are the tachometer different for the diesels than the gas? The one on ours wants to take another lap around the gauge when running. The tach cable isn t rounded and it did this with the old generation. The engine before was a 3000 gas, this motor is a 4000 diesel.

Thanks, I'll pull the tach out and push it in tomorrow and see if it works.

You tach cable is in a bind and is pushing in on the tach, this causes the inside components of the tach to rub against each other making the needle spin farther than it should.

This usually happens when the cable doesn't fit in the generators tach drive far enough.

The engine doesn t have the tach driven off the engine. The engine is a 1968.

Tachs are the same. Parts book confirms that.

Could the replacement engine have the tach driven off the engine not the generator?

There is only one part listed for the tach for both gasoline engines and diesel engines across the 3 cylinder 2000/3000/4000 series. Original part number was C7NN17360B which has been superseded by part number EHPN10489AGV. Neither part number appears available from New Holland any longer. The entire cluster with the gauge already in it was EHPN10849A which has been superseded by EHPN10849AGV, which also appears to be unavailable from New Holland, so the only ones available are third party after market gauges.
Does your tractor have the original generator with the tach drive, or has it been converted to an alternator with a tach drive? There have been a few people recently saying that the alternators with the tach drives don't spin the cable at the same rate as the original generator tach drives.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
