Ontario Onboard Tackometer Hellp!!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
hi Guys:

I have a DA 50 and I wanted to Install an on-board Tack...
The Da CDI does not have a Tack lead on it like the new CDI's like DLE.

I used a "Y" harness between the Pick up and the CDI, that was a no go.
You would think that would work, but Hey what do I know...
any other Idea's

the Tack that I have is a "RC xl"

now for just Sh*ts and giggles I plugged it into a battery and the display tuned on..

yes this plug does have W,R and B wire coming from it...

so I thought I would ask you gentlemen. any thoughts or any wire diagrams that might help?

Re: Onboard Tackometer Hellp!!


Maybe I can give you some insight

Early 3w,s and , " ALL " , DA,s , don,t use hall sencers , and only use two wires . That thing in the holder is an , " inductor " . So you , " Can Not " , connect youre on board tack .

The way I see it is that you have two options ( but I,m sure there are others )

Buy a Hitec Aurora 9 with telemetry
Change the ignition system . http://www.prcmodel.com/home.html

But if my memory is good . I remember the guys at the field haveing Da,s and they were connecting a tack to there engine .

E-Mail DA and hear what they have to say .

Or,.............. someone else will step in here and give better info .
