If the TR6 used the same size guage as the TR250... the TR6 tach is about 6"
in diameter and the Spit unit is only about 4 or 4.5".
And.... the Spit tach is designed for a 4 cylinder. If you can get used to
your tach reading 50% high.....
I wouldn't be surprised if Smith's hadn't done an electric tach in the right
style/dimensions as your TR250.
Or most autoparts chains have an inexpensive tach available.
