I ran out of cat food today. :( dog food is soon. Wood stove is sitting outside, no where to put it.

The 6bt should have a CPS, couldn't you get a feed of that?

It does have the CPS, but pretty sure it would require some voltage I guess,
I'd be leery frying the tach knowing my luck.

i think that the dodge CPS from 91.5-93 is only 5 volts (actually i know, just searched this afternoon for 1/2hr.).. the tachs on our diesels are 12 volts... it will work on any alternator if it can be center tapped....

I'll take it, got no money to pay you, can't pay heat, family has no food, but at least the truck would have a tach.
if you are serious we will send it to you rich....

Your correct, but it gets 5v from the ECM, yes it has one. Went through all this when mine stopped charging.
I've been looking for one for a while, but no, I can't ask you to send me something. Legend is a nice guy and don't want him to feel screwed, you guys need money all most as much as me.

I wired up mine with a old school mopar regulator, couldn't you do the same to get it charging?

That sounds awesome J&J. I've had my mind on one for a few years after a thread on an E-bay listing.

Yes. I got the regulator and the pigtail but never quite understood the wiring. I ended up getting the CPS to work when a few days of searching revealed the proper gap.

read about the gap today too...LOL.... the problem/reason i was searching is that the guy i sold the dodge tach to wants the pigtail with the plug, but the tach was in an early 1991, without the plug in the harness and was wired into the ECM.... but i told him i will include the 4WD shifter knob with it for free to compensate... :eek::

So your is charging now?

I found the wiring to be funky myself, but I got mine working so if you need pics, schematic, etc let me know.
Thought for sure I was gonna smoke something , I hooked the wires up but left them loose so if it did fry at least burn the harness or truck to the ground :D

I got in a big argument with my buddy that has the 71 k20 with the 3-53...
He was busting my balls about having all this mopar stuff on my truck...
I fired back the only thing mopar is the front half of the trans (47rh, the O/D is made by new process)alt, voltage regulator.
He said hello...what about the motor... Hello Cummins I said , he pointed to the data tag that had the chrysler logo and walked away.
I said that's after you have I'm your K20 to the scrap yard :D
