    looking to sell an original Dixco hood mounted tach built with the Chrysler Pentastar logo. Built by Dixco for the Mopar Hustle Stuff line (later called Direct Connection) and can be used for a 6 or 8 cyl. Was Mopar part number 3420740 though that is not on the tach at all and i do not have the original box it came in. It's a 4 wire and has the cast nut for install. Nice condition
    Sorry forgot to put in the price and i cant figure out how to edit the ad. Asking $950.00 C$ which works out to aprox $750.00 US$

      Have you tested it functionally? What are the four electrical connections?

      No i have not tested it functionally as i traded for it and have never used it. not sure about the four electrical connections either though there are some threads on FABO regarding the wiring.

            Don't come in shittin on somebody's for sale ad man. That's not cool. Start a thread of you own on the forum and show every the differences.That's the right way to do it. Otherwise it makes it look like you're trying to beat the guy down on his price.

            Sure ive had 4 of these hood tachs 2 original used in mint comdition and 2 N.O.S so i know what the difference's are . The later tach's like yours have a large Black plastic mounting nut and Black phillips anti spin screws. The red line pointer dial has a different shape and knurling to it. Also reproduction's had the Pentastar logo on the face plate as they could not use the Blue a Whit Chrysler Parts silk screen for copy right law's. I have a complete N.O.S " Hustle Stuff " " Chrysler Parts " hood tach now.

              Im not knocking his tach at all just wanted to educate him on a honest misconception nothing more .Before i knew the difference i had a tach just like his then i found out what's genuine and what's a reproduction no harm intended. Id put his tach on a car no problem its still a cool tach.

                @toolmanmike can you help this guy's for sale ad? Some prick came in and dicked it all up. All the rest of us were trying to help.

                Post #8 should have been handled in a different forum or through private messages.

                Lol i was sorry for posting that the tach this guy is trying to sell is a repro i should have sent him a private message my mistake but now i don't care all the humanoid's bashing me can go jump in the nearest lake. This tach is maybe worth $ 300.00 because real tachs cant get $800.00 right now , nuff said. These pics are a REAL tach look close for some free education.

                  How is this a Dick post RRR? He stated it was still a nice part and just said it wasn’t an early tach. It’s interesting how text can be interpreted differently, depending on who’s reading it. To me, you’re the one bring a Dick, but you’re the most prolific poster on this page with a ton of great useful info, so I guess it’s ok. I’ve read hundreds of your posts and have learned a ton from you from stalking your responses, this is one is off base though. In my opinion.

                      Only if you think he was coming at him side ways. Before being called out, he didn’t state the value he thought it was, or try and get in his face about what he was selling. It was a passive response to help educate. Someone like me who doesn’t know shit appreciates it, because if it wasn’t stated, someone like me could’ve bought it not knowing it wasn’t what was advertised and way over spent without the possibility of recouping. It was an honest mistake by the seller. I don’t think anyone will judge him for it. I feel bad for him because he probably got hosed on his trade, considering.

                        This very much should have been handled exactly the way it was...
                        This is like a buyer beware of someone paying $800 for a $300 tac...
                        This makes it fair for the seller and the buyer...
                        since you're doing the occasion how about me doing some and thinking that you're in on the over $500 markup maybe you get half?...
                        I wanted to make a reasonable offer but when he started at $800 I couldn't think of anything reasonable... If you would have started at 300 and ask for a reasonable offer it would probably be on my car right now....

                        But this is going on the assumption the seller knew it was a repop and was trying to get NOS top dollar. He didn't know it.

                        Should have been handled in private.
