I was wondering if the original tach for a 68 chevelle would work in the hei distributor and wouldn't fry it. Does the hei push too much current to the tach and eventually fry it, or will it work ok. I know for a fact it does work, I have tried it a couple of times. But I ran into the problem that it doesn't work now. I haven't took it apart to see if it is burnt up yet. If it did burn up, it didn't smoke like my clock did a year ago.

Any comments will be greatly appreicated

I've been running the '68 "roll" tach with HEI for several years in my '68 El Camino. No problems.

A hei wouldn't burn it out. Factory tachs are perfectly compatible with hei's. If you get it working again have no fear about the hei killing it. Its a pretty common thing to do. Hope this helps.
