with the smiths generator driven tachometer gear reduction unit, it could
care less about rear axle ratio, tire size or wich transmission is in the
car. it has to do with the diameter of the generator pulley! bigger
pulley = slower rpm of armature Vs. smaller pulley = faster rpm of armature
at the same specific engine measured rpm's.
