How many times has one thread been resurected?! To keep the info in one place I'll add it in here. Someone, somewhere on here, found out that the Bosch 120A alternator (as fitted to 'new' beetles) fits onto vw 1.9 diesels but doesn't have a 'W' take off for the tach. Well, looking through Sven's website I found that inside the plastic back panel are 6 connections (each a clamp with 2 copper wires), any of these can be used as a 'W' take off, just solder a wire onto the (cleaned) connector. So a big thanks to Sven for putting the info out there, I just thought it might be handy to people searching the subject here.

I have recently acquired a job-lot of 1986/87 vintage, new-old-stock, 52 mm diameter, VDO Cockpit 0~6000 rpm alternator-sensed tachometers; one of which I intend to substitute into my 1973 VW "1600" Type 2 Westfalia Continental campervan, with VW Type 4 style air-cooled engine.





When I have the opportunity to test them, I shall put the surplus tachometers up for sale, including my 52 mm diameter, VDO Cockpit "Night-Design" 0~6000 rpm alternator-sensed tachometer.
