Re: Electronic tacho

Hi John, The diagram shows a small icon picture of an alternator, with no mention of a magneto, however, if it works that would be brilliant as the magneto switch is right next to the tacho! The diagram of the hookup on an RV would be very helpful, I dare say electronic tacho’s are very similar in t...

Electronic tacho

I would like to change my Walter Mikron III tacho from mechanical to electronic, mainly due to routing difficulties. I have bought a suitable indicator, (sadly of Chinese origin!) but there is no clear suggestion of how or where to connect the black signal wire. The diagram shows a picture of a sens...

CherryLock Rivet gun

Does anyone have a CherryLock rivet tool (G700, G784, or G689 with a H681-4C pulling head) that they are willing to lend/ hire for a week or two? I have approx 100 rivets to close but cant really justify spending £1000 on a tool I may never use again! I am Sussex based.
