Installing any tach on a YSE8 Yanmar??

I need to install a tach on my 75 YSE8 to solve some other problems involving low power and black smoke. After researching, it appears I have no way of connecting one without rebuilding something...is that right???? I've found the "Tiny tach", but I don't have enough straight steel fuel line to install the it's sending unit, otherwise it would do great I think.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated, THANKS!!!!

Use an alternator pulse detection tach, not too expensive.
example:
Auto Meter 2888 Performance Series Pedestal Mount Mini Diesel Tachometer

I checked out the Auto Meter 2888, and it would do the job it appears, but I'd like to install it dash mount.....I guess I could customize it to do so. I'm still looking at the Tiny Tach as well, just have to see if I can squeeze out enough straight fuel line to install the transducer Thanks again for the suggestion, and keep any others coming!!!

I have just installed the Tiny Tach on my YSE8. The suggested location is as clost to the injector as possible. Mine isn't registering and I have to try and sort this out. I believe a tach could be installed off the alternator but would have to be calibrated for pulley diameter etc. The third option is off the ring gear but this gets very complicated. The Tiny Tach was suggested to me by another CS27 owner who is very happy with his so I think mine will work after some adjustment I've not got to yet.

I think the Tiny Tach is the way to go too now...I've been talking with Steve, and he says they've put many on YSE8's already...the transducer is much smaller that I though, so there should be a spot to install it on my short line.
thanks for the help guys, and good luck mitiempo with yours
