Anyone know of a maker of a tach for a 6volt pos ground system. My N did not come with one, and on the older N's the only way to add them is to replace the governer. Not something I want to do. Just woundering. I plan to use the tractor, and it would be nice to know what engine RPM's I am running.

I bought one about 17 years ago for my 46 Plymouth that had a 6 volt positive ground. I think I got it from J C Whitney. You might check with them.

I was just reading that some 8N tractors had a cable driven tach.
I think it drove off the distributor. They are available but I am not sure what parts you need for the complete setup.

OOPS
I did not read all of your original post that the original type will
not work with your set up. I will post if I find a 6 volt 4 cylinder positive ground tach. It is turning out to be hard to find.
