Electrical / Re: Tach from OER... same connection as stock ??

Tachometer Troubles

I purchased an OER 5659065 replacement tachometer for my 1978 Pontiac Firebird Esprit with Rally Gauges from Ames Performance Pontiac. The OER tachometer is a direct GM replacement part for 1975 thru 1978 Firebirds.  Ames said I would need the Mallory Ignition tachometer adapter 29074 in order for the tachometer to work properly.  So, I purchased that too. My distributor is a Proform Parts HEI distributor with a magnetic trigger and both mechanical and vacuum advance.  I've read posts from others where their tachometer would not go above 500 but was then fixed with the use of a tachometer adapter.  But, my tachometer needle does not move at all.  Everything is hooked-up correctly and all connections are good. The tachometer does not work without the tachometer adapter.  The tachometer does not work with the tachometer adapter.  But, the clock in the tachometer does work. Any ideas???

You can find production numbers here:  http://www.78ta.com/production.php
Unfortunately Pontiac/GM didn't break production numbers down by options.

Gold special editions were in '78 only...only black for '80.
