bought a tacho for my Kubota 3cyl diesel. my electrician opened the box, and said, no good, its for petrol, 2-4-6-8 cyl. can it not be adapted, or do I have to change it.
A lot will be soldered too especially if they are car derived which a lot are.It's an easy fix. I had to do it on my alternator as it didn't have a W terminal. First google a pic of a car alternator stator, this gives you a heads up on what your looking for. Then take the end cap off and you'll see a circuit board with three large bolts, these are the stators. Undo one of these bolts, withdraw it and then put a ring terminal connector under it and bolt it back. Just make sure that the connector is touching the circuit underneath. All that's needed us too connector a wire from the newly added connector back to the tacho. There's a load of info if you google stator wiring. Paul
