They still list it, but dont have and can't get one. I called Wicks and they never called back, suggesting that it is no longer available.

I am also looking for a cable driven dual drive that runs two tachometer It is a Stewart Warner Number # 669 R2 1 to 1 ratio. These were originally used on fire trucks back in the 60s 70s and 80s thae were also used on trucking equipment that required an additional tachometer at the control station for power takeoffs that ran a number of different accessories. Does any one know if these are still made or are in a surplus obsolete parts warehouse? I tried Googling it up on the net but could find nothing. Dave

For the truck one, you might check the tractor restorers.

The dual adapter was also used with some electric speed sensors on automotive aftermarket cruise controls. I put one on a car I used to have back in the 80s.

I know where there is a Stewart Warner dual tach drive D-778-T, it is a T drive with the two tach outlets 180 degrees opposite each other on the cross shaft of the T. Let me know if interested, the drive wont be much but the shipping will be a bit as it is in New Zealand (I would imagine still under US$100 for the whole lot, but would need to check)

Let me know if this is what you are after.
