Re: Best sounding muffler ?

I used two 24" glass packs. Like 2manycars, I went with 1 3/4" dual pipes. Nice tone right from the start, they get better with age.

Re: Tachometer wiring/ 8BA

Tubman- you are correct, 6 volt pos. ground system. And it is a double whammy deal breaker. I heard back from the folks at Tach Match and they pretty much said the same thing. Their "clone" box needs...
