Post Fs 78-83 W123 Diesel Tachometer 300D 300TD EURO Tach RARE

Look this:

EBAY: 78-83 W123 Diesel Tachometer 300D 300TD EURO Tach RARE | eBay


HI This is the very hard to find Mercedes W123 Diesel Euro Tachometer 300D 300CD 300TD tach 2plug

This is a tachometer removed from a euro W123 diesel,they have different IP pumps on some models. This 1982 euro non-turbo has a higher redline. The US models use the same tachometer amp (years 81-83) as the euro cars. US cars can not redline because the IP pump will cut fuel. It is a plug and play upgrade with a working clock .If your w123 doesn't have a tachometer you'll need to get wiring / tach amp from another vendor, as I don't have them .

It will fit:W123 2pin 1978-1983, it will not work in the 3pin 84-85 model years if your W123 came with a tach from the factory.


This tach is in great shape/ tested!!! The clock works great!!!

It is an early tachometer for a 280/280E. Maybe it has been modified to work on diesels.

I thought of that too. The redline was a clear indication.

What's the price of the tach without the wait of bidding?

Benzmizer, you still have this tach and like to part with it?

Wasn't the last of the clock with marks for each second available in the 116? Are we sure this is a 123 tach?

I don't recall ever seeing a 123 tach/clock with seconds.

It is an early W123 tach. See also this (German) page:

the google translate the page:
Tachometer compared

In particular, in auction houses like tachometers are available with the wrong map. By far the highest prices are paid for W123er DZM (80 - to 200 - €), while not pack as often W124er DZM the 20 € mark.

Here, first photos of the various W123 models for a rough distinction. Within the series of course there are other distinctions:
Diesel: 6000 IMP or 14 or 000 Hz alternator terminal W. DDZM Most have no red zone. Except very early models, which also have a clock with minute scale.
Gasoline: 4 - and 6-cylinder; for breaker point or electronic ignition, to various red areas. To 8 / 82 with silver cap on the needle. Very early models have a clock with a minute scale. There also have different zero points.

so its good for the diesel or not?

No, it will not work on a diesel.

The red-zone tachometers for diesel have a redline at around 4500-4600 rpm. The redline at 6500 rpm indicates a tachometer for a 280 or 280E. It will only work on a six-cylinder gas engine.
