I started the old 550 the other day to move it and the needle on the tach went crazy, jumping all around. When I shut it off, the needle stayed at 1000 rpm. Started it back up and it worked ok. Sounds like I'm about due for a new tach??

If you need another tach, I have one. Price will be right.

It will sell on Friday. I'll try lubing the cable. I've had the tach drive strip the gears before and when that happens, they usually just stop working.

I have seen a few Olivers that had the drive gear stripped the tachometer drive under the distributor.

Try pulling the drive cable out first to lubricate it inside the casing, a sticking cable can make it jump too. Might still need a new tach, but worth a try..

As far as I was aware a fordson was a fordson and it was only through trial an ... [Read Article]
