    On mine, the green wire gets attached to brown/white wire on the coil.

    On the newer gereration mini trucks with the EFI and coil over plug ignition the green tachometer signal pickup wire goes to one of the two wires from the cam position sensor on the rear of the cylinder head. Tom

    I run 6700 rpm all the time at 100Kms/h and I've run the little beast at 110 which means almost 7400 rpm. I've peaked at 118 once (8000 rpm) So it must be higher than 7000 RPM otherwise I'm running over redline all the time. 8000 must be closer to redline.

    thanks Little Foot

    Thanks for the info. I have a 2001 Suzuki Carry Da62T K6A eng. It has the
    coil over plugs. As I am hard of hearing and the engine is quiet I worry
    about over rpm in low range. With ATV Mud Lite tires. They make more
    noise than the engine on gravel or a hard surface. I have found Tachometers
    that will work thanks to this forum. Plug wire induction won't work. I really need
    to find a where a wire,and what color, to use for the tach pick up.

    What's up guys? I have a little bit older model truck compared to the ones yall have been talking about, but i though i'd post up in case anybody needed help with one like mine.

    I have a 92 Daihatsu Jumbo with the s83p motor. It's a carb'd 660.
    I used the Equus 6088 tach from O'riley http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detail/EQU0/6088.oap?keyword=tachometer&pt=N0531&ppt=C0134. I ran the red wire to a key'd hot under my dash, the black to the same ground i used for my fog lights, the white to the hot wire going to the parking lights (so the tack lights up with the dash lights), and the green wire to the signal wire on the coil. The signal wire is the smaller wire going to the coil. Mine is red/black with silver dots on it.

    And i'm not sure how far yall are comfortable rapping your trucks out, but mine doesn't seem to like anything much over 5000. I ran it up to 6000 yesterday, and it was really screaming. Idk how you guys are getting yours up to 7500-8000??

    I've taken mine up to 8k but it's really screaming, stock tach on the Atrai van version of the hijet shows a redline just over 7k...I would assume that the speedo is an accurate representation of how high you can rev it,a truck with no stock tach would not have a 120km speedo if the truck couldn't reasonably reach that speed...the turbo versions of the same vehicle have a 140km speedo...

    Is this your way to stop tire shirp between shift? I really hate that tire shirp when I shift from third to fourth at 8000rpm, plus it attracts the POLICE. Those long burnouts from first gear don't help either. I might buy slicks to stop tire to pavement slipage. Maybe I'll have to detune my engine to cut power. Bring it down to 38 hp from 42 hp maybe!

    1999 suzuki tach

    Just up in a equus 6068 tach works great with coil on plug. I tryed to use the sunpro that I had in my diahatsu no luck. I tryed using the signal from the cam sensor but even the draw of an LED test light would cause the engine to die. Useing a GPS unit it runs 60 miles per hour at 90 k because of over size tires (165 80 13s) its at 5300 rpm Tires are on 2000 up Accent wheels and clear fine.

    Well I imagine this is a topic good as any to post what I found in a owner's manual for a 1998 Carry/Every(thus I'd imagine it would apply for 1991 onwards).
    The manual shows 7000-8000 rpm as redline(and the meter only goes up to 8000), however all the pictures of the RPM meter are for the turbocharged automatic transmission.

    As for gear shifts, manual says 0-20km/h for 1st gear, 10-40km/h for 2nd gear, 20-60km/h for 3rd, 30km/h upwards for 4th, and 40km/h upwards for 5th. There is also bunch of instructions for EL, and 4WD, but they seem rather specific, and I cannot read Japanese so I really don't dare posting those not knowing what applies when.

    I recently purchased a Equus 6068 Tach and cannot get it to work on my 2003 Suzuki Carry ?
    I’ve tried to connect the Green wire to a connector which I thought was the Cam Sensor but it don’t
    seem to read correctly it just goes bonkers... Like someone else said on this topic when checking these
    Three wires with a test light one wire the test light goes solid light another will shut the engine down
    And the other nothing happens ?.

    This is the Three wire connector on the front of the engine up high where the timing chain is. Any help would be appreciated .

    I have a 2002 Carry so I suppose you have the same K6a engine. Wonder if you might be able to use the crank sensor as a pickup signal and use a different setting on the tach itself. Only offering suggestion as I have not tried to install a tach on mine.

    Tried the Cam Sensor and every configuration on the Tach but no luck
