    Question Tacho Stopped Working - '83 WB Ute

    Hi Guys, I have a '83 WB 253 Ute complete with a GTS dash. Recently my tacho stopped working, first time ever. The Tacho has worked for as long as I can remember without an issue. I haven't made any changes to the ignition or anything else for that matter. Anyone got any ideas or had a similar problem before. Cheers.

    Have you checked all the wiring? No new brakes or suspicious rubbed areas?

    Check for an inline fuse in the wire from the coil to the tach. Only small current draw, so fuse might be 2a or 5a. Thin wire in these fuses can fracture from age. Check connections, loose wire[s]. Otherwise if the engine runs, it can really only be the tach.

    Thank you for reply, I have or thought I had checked the wiring back to the instrument. Didn't find any inline fuses. Should there be some? Maybe I have traced the wrong wire!
