My M1070 has the original design older one piece combination speedo/tach gauge w/out hour meter, instead of the more typical and updated separate speedo tach gauges. Well, I came across a new panel with the separate gauges and would like to use it in mine. But when I got it and was able to see how it works, I noticed these newer gauges use electronic inputs for the speedo and tach while mine is cable driven. Does anyone know if my DDEC III/1V engine is set up to run these gauges or is there extra add on pick ups/sending units needed to run the newer style gauges. I cant seem to find any useful info in the manuals and the only wiring diagrams I find online are to small to actually read which is really frustrating. I did read somewhere in the engine diagnosis section that with the pro link 9000 scan tool you can read the mph and of course rpm so it seems that the engine electronics may already have electronic the outputs but whether they can and/or how they can be tapped into for these gauges I do not know. Does anyone know what it would take to fire these gauges up?
