Use this table if you are using your tachometer with an ignition coil.
Use this table if your ignition is the type that provides a pulse-per-revolution type signal. 4000 RPM Alternator Tach 2:1 ratio set for 6 cyl. gas; use pot to calibrate.
CAUTION: Read these instructions thoroughly before making installation. Do not deviate from assembly or wiring instructions. Always disconnect battery ground before making any electrical connections. If in doubt, please contact your dealer or VDO Instruments at (540) 665-2428.
Clamp over the back of the instrument. Its direction depends on the thickness of the panel (Diagram B). Tighten the clamp until the gauge can no longer be rotated by hand. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
1. Run wires from the tachometer location to: a) A +12 volt power terminal. (This positive power source MUST BE SWITCHED, and should be protected with a fuse); b) the light switch (also after the fuse in the fuse box); c) a good ground location;

Instruction Sheet #Rev. 03/00
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION OF THE TACHOMETER ARE CONTAINED HEREIN. USE IS RESTRICTED TO 12-VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. LIGHT BULB, IF SUPPLIED, IS 12 VOLT.

d) the location of the signal source (alternator, coil or other ignition signal source). 2. Connect the wiring to the appropriate tachometer terminals as shown in Diagram C.
another type of ignition system, determine the number of pulses per revolution the ignition signal provides, and set the DIP switches as shown in the bottom table.
Adjusting the Tachometer Pointer:
Use of the VDO Tachometer with an alternator or other type of ignition that provides a signal in pulses per revolution may requre calibration of the pointer. This can be done as show in Diagram E. Please note that this calibration is designed to adjust the reading between 30% and 100% of the RPM range. At this point, the installation and wiring of your new VDO Tachometer is complete. Turn on the ignition and the lights in the car and check to see that the instrument and light work properly. If they dont, recheck your wiring, referring to the wiring description in Diagram C.
Configuring the Tachometer:
Before your VDO Tachometer will function properly with your engine, you will need to configure it as shown in Diagram D. The table at the top of Diagram D shows how to set the DIP switches for use with an ignition coil; the table at the bottom shows how to set the DIP switches when using the tachometer with an alternator.
