Default Proper Care and Feeding of the Tach Sending Unit

This was a great thread! I noticed that my tach was a little "bouncy" around 2000 RPM's over the past year or so. Today, I had to replace my alternator belts; so while in there, I dripped some 3-in-1 motor oil in the cap on the sending unit. Took the coach out for a 20-mile test drive and the tach behaves alot smoother. I've attached some photos for anyone with a PT model. It's my understanding that all of the 6V92's and 8V92's had a similar arrangement.

Shane,
Great post & photos. On our 87PT I could oil the tach. sender from the curb side by reaching between the down exhaust and the forward wall.
