I have a 1994 Aerostar without the electronic(digital)speedometer that I had on my `93 Eddie Bauer.
I REALLY miss having the tachometer and want to know the easiest and best tach to buy or what to do to install one?
I'm sure I'm not the first to do this,and any help is appreciated.This is the speedo that only registers to 90,which is okay.Thanks! don-ohio :)^)

install an instrument cluster from a F-150 which is analog and contains a tach.

Thanks,Brooklyn and Jose for responding.
I'd like a digital,Brooklyn and it's a 4.0 engine. Jose,how would you wire it up? Things like oil pressure,temp,voltage and speedo?
Sounds great but I'd need details. I know from my search that you did do this. don-ohio :)^)

I haven't done it to mine, but if you want Digital, it doesn't exist unless you add a tach outside of the instrument cluster.
