Re: Perkins 4108 - Wiring diagram

This is what I have. I didn't mark it but the 1 circled is the input from oil under pressure and temp high sensors which are not the same as the monitoring gauge sensors. On my unit it was/is a separate wire. According to Mainsail it is best to get rid of the connector, which I will be doing.

Re: Perkins 4108 - Wiring diagram

With few exceptions on 4-108 The Tachometer (revcounter) gets it's signal from the "AC" connection on the alternator. If your alternator does not have one any rebuild shop can add one. The tacho should be calibrated using a photo or handheld tach.
