My car is a 1993 1.0L Metro. I want a tach and would rather have the oem tach in the instrument cluster than an add-on tach. But the only car in the salvage with an oem tach is a G13 4-cylinder car. Can a 4-cylinder tach be adapted to a 3-cylinder car?

yes it can, you have to take it apart and change out a resistor. maybe a little complicated for a newbie, but anyone with some intermediate electrical experience can do it.

or I could sell you my t3 cluster I pulled (140kmh wasnt enough, needed the 180kmh outta the 4cyl so I adapted it) I wanted 50 bucks for it

Which resistor and change it to what value?

Does your unit have MPH or just KPH?

i converted a Mk3 tach [what you have] for a friend like i did my Mk2. he says it is very wrong. mine is fine. when he gets it out again, i will look at it. i have done several Mk2 and i suspect the Mk3 tach may be different.
for $50 i'd get the vert or T3 cluster.
