mine is on the collum at the 3' clock it covers the alt meter, but otherwise not too shabby. its also an automatic, so you have to have enough slack in the cable when you move it from p to d

[quote=Warmachine]Am I the only one that puts the tach behind the indicator (on the moving collar) on an automatic? quote]

No. I do it to. Kinda cheesy i think. It looks goofy when in park or 1st as stated before. I would really like to put it on the dash in the corner but can't because the base is rounded and it wouldn't mount right. It's an old sun tach from the 70's. Mabey i should get a new one.

Be careful if trying to drill into the column, great way to ruin the collar inside (AMHIK)

i had mine in the glove box and loved it at first... i just moved it to the column, problem is, i often transport my gun in the locked glove box, that doesn't work it i need the tach for something, it also sucks to have to open the glove box off road and it means i cant store anything in there while i try and watch it.... thought i had a great idea... think again, the steering column is a popular place for a reason

if i had another glove box door i think i would probably move it to the door but i just dont feel like cutting up my glove box door

MattMopar440 did the same on his '91 and doesnt clash with the sqaure gauges IMHO

I have mine mounted on the column with a metal hose clamp - same as a few pictures above. Its an inexpensive Sunpro. I have a manual trans and steering column. My engine doesn't see more than 4k, although 3k is the norm.

im not a huge fan of the pillar mount, its just outside of my major field of vision of my other gauges and i like to keep my sunglasses right where it would sit... plus the extra hole, my wag is rusted enough already

I was about to ask for this... I want to see exactly how it looks with the late interior. Is that a 3-3/8ths tach or a smaller one??

From my install post. Not really an option unless you swap to a stick though. And no, it doen't block the gauges in the way it looks in the pic. I can still barely see the amp gauge over it.
