I have a 69 Mach I with the factory tach and am running a MSD 6 and factory electronic dist from a later model 360 truck. tried the adapter that MSD recommended , no luck. Tach moves but doesn't read correctly. would be nice to have it work properly. RR

This won't work

with most 60;s era Ford factory tachs. it states that it will not work with current triggered tachs. If you have a 60;s factory Ford tach in a Mustang or Fairlene it will not work.
I quote "TACH-ADAPT is not compatible with current-triggered tachometers. Such techniques were
used in some older (60's) Ford and Chrysler products that run battery feed to the coil through the vehicle
tachometer. "

Try this onehttp://www.technoversions.com/TachMatchHome.html They have 3 versions for different styles of tachs.

I have the MeterMatch for the fuel gauge and it works great
