Have anyone tried the electronic tach from mick hemmings?

I`m running a magneto system, and would like to try this one out on my A10. But would first appreciate any experiences with both the tach and the man.

You can see it here http://www.mickhemmings.com/ at page 17.

Old Britts also sells the Hemmings tach.

The product literature says the electronic tach will not work with a magneto system.

Yup, most electronic tachs out there trigger off the primary side of the coil. There are ones out there though that will trigger of the secondary, but the ones hemmings sells don't seem to be it. Also, every one I've seen required 12V.

Rocker,

I use Scitsu tachs. They are well made in England and are cheaper than Micks'. Just do a google search for "Scitsu".

I use a snowmobile tach off 12v but you require a tach with lead that clamps over on outside of high tension lead to plug so that each spark is caught. Most of the shop tach that are digital and inexpensive are like that.
