The RC card is unfortunately at home in India and am holidaying in Qatar now. Its a diesel folks, a 1.5L engine. So does this also have just 4 cylinders?

Edit : Just googled and found out that the Diesel 1527cc engine is a 4 cyl.

So now got to go shopping for the tachometer

From the alternator of course... The stock RPM meters of big diesels like Safari, Scorpio etc., sense it from the alternator unit..

Exactly, as gd has said!

Please don't pick up one meant for distributor type engines.

Ok this is frustrating! The whole of Doha doesnt stock even one Autometer/Autogage Tachometer! Wah! All fakes! That too at around 3000INR. The only Autometer stuff I saw were 2 gauges (2.5") - oil temp and voltmeter.

Guys, how much does a pillar pod with a votlmeter, oil temp cost? Does the water temp gauge help? Has it got anything to do with coolant, etc?

Hi guys,
I had a lousy experince while getting a tachometer fitted for my m-800.I went to a shop at Milan subway to look for a tacho,found one i liked at
Jai Car acessories shop.It cost 1600 bucks + 300 for the tacho holder.I think it was a auto meter one.After the fitting i checked the tacho it worked fine,paid the guy and drove off and decided to rip the car to see the needle climb up.What happened next took me by surpise as the needle did a 360 turn all way round and rested at > 10000 rpm
I simply took a U-turn and went back to guy and showed him the problem
After careful observation it seemed that the needle placement had broken and it was moving around freely.
Now comes the lousy part.The shop attendant agrees to replace the unit with a new one but the shop owner gets the impression that the guy who did the fitting broke the tacho and refuses to get the new tacho installed by the mechanic.He inisits that i go to a certain garage near Raheja college and get the tacho fitted.I argued that this should have been told to me earlier but he refuses to listen and hands me back my money and asks the mechanic to unintsall the broken tacho from the car.
I guess i had no choice and had to give in.
Well i was glad that i got my money back but this episode left two holes
on my driver side A pillar as that is where i had asked to install the tacho.
I guess both the shokeeper and me suffered some loss and the funny thing is nobody really knows who was at fault... the tacho or the mechanic.

Hi,

I don't think that is correct. A stock Maruti 800 easily revs to about 6500 Rpm ( Carb & MPFI both) am sure of that. A modded one should do more
