    I have a auto meter tach and a jacobs electric ignition system and the tach needle always jumps from 1000 to 2000 at idle and it smooths out on the highway but not sure if it is correct. any ideas on what to do? /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    If it is hooked up to the right wire I would check the connections for tightness and make sure the ground for the tach is on good paintfree metal. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
