what colour is the wire i use to hock up a tach on a 1989 Chevy 350
if you mean tach/tachometer you have find an aftermarket tach driver and plug it in where the original tach plugs in
You will have to find the coil first.
I havent found the location yet but im currently looking into it, but you have to find the tach lead, I know the lead exists but i cant find it yet
theirs a green wire by distributer that is for the tach
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.
Yes you can
This entirely depends on the vehicle and the type of tach your referring to such as a add on tach or an OEM in dash tach. To explain how to install and OEM tach would take far to long. I would suggest a add on tach that mounts basically where ever you want to mount it. Most of these tachs explain the installation instructions. I personally recommend a tach by Autometer you can view their products on the web at the link below. , EzForJesus http://www.autometer.com/
There is a lot of free software such as HDD Tach and others.
It should work. I have a 94 w/o a tach and put a LE version cluster with tach in. Works fine. There should still be a tach wire grouped into the harness plugs. Just unplug your old one and plug in the new one that's it.
V tach stands for ventricular tachycardia.
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'.
there will be a spot on back of distributor cap it will say tach run wire from there to gauge. You probably need to run a switched 12v lead as well to illuminate the tach at night. The tach slot on the distributor will take care of 'timing' the pulse to the tach. Often times the tach will have a switch setting for 4-6-8 cylinder. Read the manufacturer instructions carefully.
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".
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.
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
Do you mean an oil pressure gauge? Not tach?
The tach should connect to the distributor.
at the tach it is white-pink green at coil

You don't. A tach (tachometer) measures engine RPM (Revolutions per Minute), not mileage.
A tach (short for tachometer) is an instrument that measures the rotation speed of a shaft or disk, as in a motor or other machine.
