I've jsut been surfing round, and although my panda buying days are in the near future, there is one question i have: Can Fiat Pandas be fitted with a Rev-Counter? If so, how easy is it to do, as a DIY job? Thanks for any imput
Depends on the age of the Panda:
older, with points are OK.
Search google, you'll find things like
and search for K2625 on the site.
if you're a dab hand with a soldering iron...
later fuel injected Pandas could be more problematic, if it has two coils... even then I suppose you could fit a tacho which is designed for 2 cylinder 4-stroke with connection to one of the coils.
Which is something I should of thought of months ago when the query was raised elsewhere :-(
If anyone's good with a soldering iron i got a circuit diagram for a tacho it works from a wire wrapped around the coil (it shows a oil cooled type).
It uses a NE555N timer, BC107's and a coil type meter 0-1mA.
The timer gives out a current of between 0-1mA, if the meter has a 1-7 scale, 1mA will equal 7000 rpm. PM me for more technical info/circuit diagram.
