11 years on from the initial installation and I still own the car and the mega jolt is still going strong.
The Tacho however never worked as I never got around to wiring it up
During this time of lockdown I decided to get the smiths RVC tacho up working, along with upgrading the dash bulbs to LEDs.

Using the mega jolt Tach output didn’t work but splicing into the PIP lead got the needle moving

For anyone wanting to know about smiths tachometers, I found this quite helpful
