I have picked up a nice littly 52mm Yakazi? revcounter in a pod and want to fit it without destroying my car too much. The mounting bracket requires me to drill about a 12mm hole in the steering wheel cowling, the pod bolt is hollow and the wires run through this, so I guess it would keep the wiring neat. Anyone come up with any neat ways of fitting revcounters.
You don't normally need to drill the cowling. Can you show a pic of your pod etc as it sounds different to mine.
The pods usually have a shoe which can rest on the column and be secured by a large jubillee clip. The wire thus exiting via a separate hole. Below small 55mm Yazaki, installed in my first V4, and the 80mm version mounted in the "Troll".
For the first time ever i have seen something on Woody's car i don't quite like...the idea of a sharp spike fixed to the steering column is something the SAAB designers would have lost sleep over and something i would'nt want to get close to in a crash! Sorry woody..no disrespect intended. I used 2 thick cable tie's to hold the "foot" of my rev counter to the steering column..i also used a smaller rev counter so it doesn't obscure the lower part of the speedo..something we need around here as they are introducing more and more 20mph zones.
