Years ago there was a discussion about the E-series V10. I THINK there was a tachometer output from the PCM, but finding it is a chore. I think there's one of those "blunt cut" wires under the dash for it.

Finding a tach that's capable of 10 cylinders, that's even more fun

Don't know if this helps. But it looks like Autometer has built an adapter for their tachs and the V-10. You might call or email them.

More here on FTE, given my google search of "e450 cto tach" (where cto stands for clean tach output, learned from the autometer page linked to by David).

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/11...10-engine.html

Looks like you should be able to find a white/pink wire labeled "CTO" under your hood

Yes I found the cto wire stubbed out under the hood..I called autometer about their tachometers and they said I needed one with 5 pulses and they want an arm and leg for one of their's..I guess that I will do without..

Found this, but still, $110 for a tach?

Owner's manual for that model only shows 4-6-8. Ask him to take a picture of the back of the tach

The only Sunpro tachs I see that work with 10 cylinders are the "retro" versions.

Weird though, Amazon says the CP7915 will work with 10 cylinder engines, but the Sunpro website doesn't say it at all.

I'd still say "look at the back and see if it has a setting for 10".

You could get a ScanGauge or the Edge monitor, both will show RPM and will add other functionality as well (mpg, temps, etc).
