    tach problems

    the tach on my 72 tr6 is gyrating wildly. i hooked up a drill to the cable, and it was quite smooth. apparently there is an issue with the dizzy? maybe that little plastic gear? any thoughts. i have another full, rebuilt distributor complete with labeled spark plug wires that i will swap in, but i'm not doing anything until VTR SouthWest Regionals are over in 2 weeks.

    Have you talked with Duncan Wood of Red River Triumph Club, Jeff Sloan at British Auto Specialists (Haltom City) or Byron ( definite last name is escaping me at the moment but I want to say Carlson) at Sports Car Warehouse (Arlington)? They could probably help you with this. It's been a while but when I had a similar problem with the tach in my TR6, it was the tach itself.

    It's likely just the cable. It's either dry and sticking or starting to fray.
