Sounds like you've got a petrol cluster, you need the TD one

thats the thing, did they do a td with the digi miles with the rev counter?

I know the late td vans had digi miles clocks (like mine) but not sure if they ever had rev counters?

ahh you have the later model, sorry i didn't realise.

did they have tacho's? i'm sure they did, the wiring on the back will most likely be different (ie it might not be pin8)
but it will work the same ;)

Right, got these in the other day, and funnily enough as white van man said, you do need to remove the needle.

Look good though!

Just a note of caution, dont shove the needle back on too hard, it'll stick on the dial face if you do!

did this earlier, has anybody observed the difference between the two modules, only difference i could see was the value of the large electrolytic capacitor, if this is the case it could potentially mean that any dial could be converted without buying a td one, will look into it in greater detail tomorrow!

Right I have diesel van with no tacho.
I have 2 sets of petrol white dials with tacho.
Do I need to buy a set of diesel clocks with tacho and swap the white dials over?
