    I'd like to install a tach in the 'wee beastie' and thanks to the forum, I knew that Equus had at least one model that would work with a three cylinder engine. I sent sales an email asking which models would work, their response is below:


    Our model 6068, 7068, 8068, and 8080 will work on 1-12 cylinder
    vehicles. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to
    reply to this e-mail or call one of our ASE Certified Staff Members at
    1-800-544-4124. We are available Monday through Friday 5am - 6pm
    Pacific Time.

    Now all we need are some numbers to go with the tach.

    Peak torque at 4000 RPM
    Peak HP at 6000 RPM
    Red line at ???? RPM:confused:

    These numbers are not in my James Danko, English shop manual.
    Can they be verified for an official Suzuki source?

    Anyone have a tach, and STOCK sized tires?

    I want to know rpm's at 60,70, and 80km's for a 94 Carry, w/4sp.

    also, would like to know the spacing of the carb mounting bolts, if anyone has a Carry carb laying around??

    In 4th gear on my 92 carry 60 kph is 4000 rpm 100 kph is 6000 rpm.
    Roughly 1000 RPM per every 10 MPH.

    does the carry have a 1:1 4th gear?

    At the bottom of this page:


    it lists the specs for the minicabs. The top of the line minicab has a 4 speed auto, but mine only has the 3 speed auto. Could I assume that the ratio of my third gear is the same as the third gear in the four speed, and I am just missing a gear? Therefore making my final drive 1:1?

    The reason I ask is that I can't find a tach for my truck as it seems to be too new. It doesn't have a coil with wires off it to each cylinder, but rather it's the setup with each cylinder having a plug/coil (one unit) setup, with only electrical wires leading to each cylinder. Anyways, if I thought my final drive was close to some the trucks you guys have, I can kinda figure my RPM's based off your calculations (example...10mph = 1000rpm's).

    Here's a picture of the 8068 I installed on my Carry. Also, I've taken out the radio and have installed three power outlets and a voltmeter (which isn't hooked up or mounted yet.)
