I have checked the rpm's with a digital tach, it it appears fine. However, I do have a problem when my batteries are full, the alternator doesn't put out so my tack reading is off until I turn on a blower or something.

I guess a side question would be, anyone know how to get the tach reading from the engine and not the alternator?
