    Hey just put a new tach on the boat, hooked up per instructions all the settings are right, but when i get on the gas it goes up to about 1200 rpms and then drops to zero, what the heck is going on any suggestions?

    Had a problem with a new tach once.
    Would function then stop like you describe.
    Ended up being a bad wiring crimp connect.
    I'd check my wire end connections for continuity.

    OK i have checked all the connection and have made sure all the settings are right found out i had it on the wrong setting, put it to the right one and hooked it up just like the old one was, i went from teleflex to teleflex tach and now i get to about 2400 rpms and it goes to zero, looks like i will be contacting teleflex technical dpt in the morning to see what i am missing here.
