Hey guys,

just a question is there any chance of a way of installing a taco into my n360 which didn't come with one factory, i know that the taco was cable driven that came with the n360 that come factory with one but is there anyway of installing one in a n360 that didn't come with one factory

All answers will be appreciated

Thanks

There are electron tachometers that run off a wire from the (-) side of your coil. The tach must have a (1) cylinder setting not just (4) and (8). Summit Racing in the states has them. I also saw an electronic racing dash for go carts that had everything. Its tach ran off a wire wrapped around one of the spark plug wires. Any mechanical tach should work that is calibrated at 1/2 the engine rpm. You would have to make an adapter.

Ive been having a look at distributorless adaptors but i haven't been able to find one that is for just a single coil which the n360 has, and also finding a tacho that works for 1 or 2 cylinders is like so hard to find ive had no luck :( maybe im looking for the wrong things

i didn't think i could use a z600 one because my engine didn't come with one factory with a tacho i didn't think it would have the necessary port for where the mechanical line goes in the motor to drive the revs counter, that is if the z600 still had a mechanical driven tacho.

Should be plenty of electronic m/cycle tachos set for two cylinders?
Probably easier than finding the mechanical drives of early N/Z 360.

I have done this conversion in my n600

what you need:

*N600 Deluxe dashboard panel with tacho and small fuel guage


this panel has 3 holes instead of 2 the tacho is big like the speedo and the fuel guage is small and sits in between, you current speedo is fine.

*z360 camshaft


which should have a thread in both ends one for the distribuitor and the other for the tacho worm drive to bolt into. in your case it must be a z360 camshaft as the n600/z600 camshaft is different spec.

*z360/z600 or n600 deluxe camshaft holder


this will replace your current blank plate and give you the outlet for the tacho cable to hook into.


*z360/z600 or n600 deluxe tacho cable

you'll find a rubber bung in the firewall where this will fit through in the correct position a the tacho cables are a just fit for length.

check your "big blue Honda" service manual for the correct camshaft measurements as z360/z600/n600 camshafts are extremely close to being the same, from what i have found the only visual difference is the 600cc camshafts are slightly fatter in the center where the timing chain goes on. but always use digital calipers or similar to measure the lobes to be sure.

you'll find alot of this stuff on ebay in the US or try honda600carparts.com

Hope this helps

I like the fact you kept it mechanical. Can you post some pictures? I am also surprised the 360 and 600 cams are similar. I had read that the 360 is a 9000 rpm motor and the 600 is a 5000 rpm motor. I would think they would have different lobe design.
