I used heat shrink tubing...sry does sound like i used tape...i mounted the small bracket with 1/4-20 bolts and washers...i havent taken her out yet but i did have her running in the garage when i was done to see if the tach worked and there was a slight diff but the thing i noticed was the autometer responds alot faster than the stock tach...hmm should try to post a vid on youtube or something
I have mine on the side of the cluster bezel and have never had an issue with it. No, its not the strongest point but a small metal plate on the back will help some. My stock tach is a few hundred behind the autometer I have....
Hmm good info but for what it's worth it did use washers on the back side cause I didn't want it to pull thru
As for draining the battery is hooked it to a key on location so it's not on all the time, I just spliced into the radio wire (also red) so when I turn the key its on and the back light to my headlight switch green to the coil and ground to a chassis ground
