    Hi everybody

    I have a E36 318 late 1999 (v) convertable.

    I think some history is needed before anyone can help.

    the head gaskit had gone and so i desided to install a 2L engine.

    have installed the engine, gearbox ECU EWSII diff and prop. starts great runs wonderfully but

    the rev counter is reading wrong. ( the rev counter is counting 4 cyl and not 6 cyl)

    so when i'm going 70MPH im reving about 6500RPM which is wrong.

    the clocks i have are 140MPH dails, black back.

    the clocks from the 320 donna are also 140MPH dails but the back is light blue.

    when i plug the other clocks in the car wont start.

    dose anyone know how to get the correct revs on the clocks is there a jumper or something or do i need to get then programed to the system. thanks

    Summo

    blue one is a VDO cluster and the black one is a Motometer, A20 had to change the clocks on his M3 conversion and had no problems so I would say you need black 6 cylinder ones
