Re: Tach ?

If it's mechanical any of the airboat makers will have them. They run from 60 to 100 dollars for the gage, 15 or so for the cable

Re: Need Advice

Take it to the muffler shop weld on two flow masters with regular exhaust pipe and flex joint on each side. Chinese knock offs are half price. Bolt it to the cage with muffler clamp welded to cross bar. That's how we do it up here.
