    You need a Dakota Digital tacho signal converter. Search on that and youíll find tons of info about it.
    You also need to use the original TB45 temp sender.

    There are more poorly done conversions out there than good ones. If you were really set on a TD42, the only ones to consider are stock late model TD42Ti with reasonable Kms and good service history....
