Fitting a rev counter to a 200/300 Tdi Defender


Recommended Posts

I remember reading somewhere on here (I think Western still answered) the part numbers for fitting a rev counter to a 200Tdi (Disco). I cannot for the life of me find the thread so if someone can direct me there I'd appreciate it very much.

Also, how difficult is it to fit a rev counter to a 300Tdi Defender?

Thank you very much.

VDO do a nice diesel-compatiable rev counter in their Vision Range, VDO make the LR instruments too.

on a tdi, the rev counter is fed a signal from the W terminal on the rev counter. You'll need to make sure you've got a W terminal on your alternator.

Welcome to the forum, btw.

VDO Vision fits straight in and matches the other instruments. They are fully adjustable, so can be made accurate no matter what they are hooked up to. If you do not have a W terminal on the alternator, it is easily added.

Rather spend your money and fit something useful like a boost gauge, or even a voltmeter. My 110 has a VDO tacho fitted as standard. Looks pretty as above and fills the hole. I can't remember when I last looked at it. With a Tdi you change gear depending on the noise level and the vibration.

lol indeed, I have a list of things as long as my arm that are far more important, however it is a bit more gadgety than the greasy and rusty bits that need work so it appeals to the inner geek :P

Can you tell me how you over rev a diesel?

Old thread, but just wondering. I've driven mostly petrols, is it hard to over rev a diesel?

I've mine booked in for a full service tomorrow, after the decent boost of power from the turbo (300tdi)it quicky runs out of steam.
