IF you have the installation instructions for the tach, it prolly tells you where to attach the tach wire. If not, call the manu. of the tach or search for their website online.
pin 48 on the pcm connecter is tach signal connect to your green wire from tach
run it to the blue wire on your distributor. That's the tach lead.
hook your green wire from the tach to the white wire from the coil PAC it should be a white and a yellow wire coming from the coil. the tach should have a white wire that will be your light inside the tach a red wire for power and a black for ground.. good luck
Tachometer Filter Tach Wire Plug Connector ON A 1979 TRANS AM
you can install any kind of tach you want to in your car..if you do not have a stock tach then look in your manual for the rmp sensor wire..should be blue or green coming off the distributor...just splice into it...if you have a stock tach you can just splice into the stock tach wires by taking off the dash
If the tach wire shorted or melted.
On the 88 jeep the trigger wire at the tach is blue.
a tachometer, wire and wire terminals
hard to find the tach signal wire due to the fact that the ignition coils are built into the distributor (old cars always easy to work on) to get the right wire l have posted a page on how to install a tach to your Mitsubishi. go to www.sureyya.biz and click on Mitsubishi tacho install. Dont forget to give feedback on how useful the info was.
I'm trying to install a factory tach my self. the guage cluster harness has a connector for the tach but I'll have to find the other end. this much I know there is a tach filter that connects to the distributer the other end attaches to the tach. try www.elcaminocentral.com they have a lot of good info on the process & yes it looks like you may need to run a wire from the distributer to the tach.
its the blue wire, alot of ppl run it off the distributor, but why, when these cars came with a tach in the Si trim, just splice into the blue wire on the gauge cluster harness
On the distributor cap where the wiring hooks up is a terminal that says tach. Install the red wire to it and the black or ground wire to a suitable ground. Sometimes the tach has a green wire that connects to the white one coming from the ignition coil plug side that has 2 wires
In order to install a tachometer on your 1987 Monte Carlo SS, you must first find the tachometer wire by using an automotive diagnostic tool. Mount the tachometer on the dashboard. Connect green, red, black, and white wires to the distributor, ignition power, cigarette lighter, and headlights, respectively. Turn on the engine to test if the tachometer works.
on my tach, the green wire connects to the neg on the ign coil pack
You will need to connect the tach to a ground and +12v source, the signal wire will have to be connected to the ground on the coil. Since the truck is fuel injected, you will likely have to find a way to wire it in with the connector on the coil. Kyrasis6 Mazdatruckin.com
White wire coming from the distributor.... remove a section of sleeve from wire and splice the signal wire from tachometer to it!
my 94 has tach machined on the coil mine is a 4.6L
theirs a green wire by distributer that is for the tach
if you look at your dist. towards the front of the dist the is a little square box. on the right it says batt and the left it says TACH. get a connector and wire it up.
this depends on the year, that will determine the type of ignition and the conection.
The green wire from the tach goes to the negative side of the coil.
As far as what tachs will work: buy a tach that has what is called an "inductive" pickup. this is a clip that you put around a spark plug wire, it will give your tach the signal it needs from the engine. the rest of the basic instructions, even though they wont be for your exact car, will be in the package with the tach.
If the wires are Red,Black,Green,and White I can help you. Im also assuming you have HEI ignition. The red wire will go on the positive battery terminal, make sure you run an in line fuse. The white and black wire are for the light, so you will have to tap in to a dash light. White being positive. The green wire will go on the tach lead also known as negative. The cap has the words TACH and BAT on them. Hook it up to the TACH.
look on the distributor cap, there is a slot marked "tach", connect the hot wire there and ground the other wire
Use an inductive pickup on plug-wire #1, and connected to tachometer located in vehicle.
