there's alot on here about tachs and trying to sort through all of it is giving me a headache so i'll just ask. i found a late 97 (november on label) metro with a tach and wanted to know if it would straight swap into my 98 as the 97 is so late in the year. i looked at the engine and it appears to be identical to mine. the yard i found it at is pricey and if it won't swap easily i'm not going to bother picking it up. thanks for the help

I believe they are the same, but don't get mad at me if they aren't. You can always go buy a good AutoMeter for a reasonable price. I have had mine for 12 years in 3 different cars and still works great.

I just finished performing the swap. Mine is a 99 and I pulled the cluster out of a 96 I believe. The vehicle I took it out of had the single port injection, distributor equipped engine. My 99 has the multi port, dual ignition coil engine. The swap was straight forward but the tach did not work. Because the cluster is getting a different signal, one of the resistors on the circuit board of the tach needs to be jumped. Solder in a jump wire and it works amazing. Also, you should grab the speedo cable from the donor car that you get your
cluster from as the speedo for the cluster with the tac is longer. I need to pull the cluster out to swap the speedo tomorrow and will try and take a pic of the resistor that I jumped.

Checked the vin and is coded as 98 model so should be straight swap. Thanks for all the advice
