    Default Magnetos & Tachs?

    From what I understand, magnetos only work in Oklahoma, but I figure Arkansas is close enough.... So maybe I'll get lucky?


    If I install a Mag, what are my options for hooking up a Tach and Rev limiter?

    if you run a mag, easy wiring and should work just fine (pending on your motor etc)
    running a tach, do able, but it will be tough finding a 5" tach with the famous yellow wire, or you can try running the converter that MSD sells, i know a few guys that have tried it and it either didnt work or didnt read accurately.
    Rev limiter - i have no experience there. I have never ran one with my Mag, i let my impeller do the limiting and out of the hole i just rolled into it so i didnt send it sky high.

    lildave, just for clarification purposes. magnetos -can- work in other places, at least for awile; but they never fail in oklahoma.
