look on the distributor cap, there is a slot marked "tach", connect the hot wire there and ground the other wire
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.
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
the tach wire is a solid green wire that runs from the dizzy to one of the loom connectors.
where is the tach wire en Toyota tacoma 1999 4 cilinders
what colour is the wire i use to hock up a tach on a 1989 Chevy 350
sounds like a dead short in the tach wire, trace the tach wire and see if it the wire insulation has been broken.
green wire on aftermarket tachs are the signal wire i belive
theirs a green wire by distributer that is for the tach
tach signal wire is a blue wire with a black cap that ends on the top of the strut tower near the firewall...done
At the dist there should be one to power the dist. & one for tach signal. Unplug one & see if car starts or if tach still works. Can't really remember for sure as its been a while lol. My 1972 tach wire is brown and it has a inline fuse from the factory. Your tach wire will be connected to the negative side of your terminal witch is labeled "tach".
You do need a switched live to the bat terminal, but not to the tach terminal. The tach terminal is the negative side of the coil, the bat terminal is the positive side of the coil. Normally the tach terminal is for the green wire from the tach.
The tach should connect to the distributor.
Blue wire is for a tach I believe
aftermarket tach is fairly simple one wire hooks on to the distributor it says tach lead one ground wire and one power wire some have optional light wire the power and light wires i just tap into the corresponding wires of of the radio
at the tach it is white-pink green at coil
Tachometer Filter Tach Wire Plug Connector ON A 1979 TRANS AM
Tach signal wire is located at the PCM near the connector. Use the manual should there be need for help in locating it.
u have to look at ur distributor if it is an HEI "coil on top there is markings on the distributor cap for the tach but if it is a regular distributor with an external coil you hook it up to the neg wire off the coil neg/ black wire
I have a 99 Ford Contour that doesn't have a tach. (even though its a stick) I think most of the contours don't. Some of the Mercury Mystique's do though. I don't know if it still has a wire, if it doesn't actually have a tach.
It should work ok if the wire for the tach under the hood is connected and I don't remember which one it is.
Since the coil is in the distributor, simply hook the tach 'trigger' wire to the out put on the side of the distributor cap marked 'tach'.
one white wire goes to the distributor, the other goes nowhere. This is the lead that goes to the tach
there is a white almost tanish looking solid color wire on the group of wires that plug into the guage cluster use a quick connect to connect the signal wire from the tach to the white wire on the guage cluster
