It's mounted on the engine side firewall, and is to smooth out the tach needle.

If you don't have that filter the tach does all kinds of wacky things. Mine was out for like 2 weeks and the tach would go backwards, roll over and start going around again. All kinds of insanity

i have one for a camaro, it will work but you will need to add a connector.the differance between a camaro one and an elco one is the camaro one plugs into the engine harness and the elco has a long lead that goes through the firewall into the car because all camaros came with a tach and elcos didnt. if you want it let me know. i can send you every thing needed to make it a sanitary swap to the camaro style. as long as you dont need the entire lead into the dash to convert a non tach car to a tach car. i dont have any pod connectors

Where does the tach filter wire to? I have installed a tach, it goes to 4,000 RPM, stays there most of the time and then jumps to around 6,000. When shut of it drops to the right. Start-up, it again moves to 4K. Will a tach filter solve this? I do not know if this tach came from a V-6 or V-8, but was the same 78-87 as I was told. I installed a separate wire back to the dash "coil' connection and thru the firewall to the distributor. What's wrong here? Thanks, Nick
