If you are talking about the stock Tachometer, the connectors are in the Large white connector block at the top rear of the instrument panel. If you are installing an after market tachometer, you should be able to tie into the same wiring harness.
Note: The dash is a Brick wall to get through. Don't try to Houdini your fingers up behind the dash. They may disappear forever, or you may have to call 911 to get unstuck. There ain't no way to get back there. Save yourself time and frustration. Take it apart.
You would hook to the negative side of the coil. Some HEI distributor caps are marked "tach".

to hook up the tach use the hot lead on the disributor and to any good ground wire and if there is a light hook it to the wire on you light switch

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'.

The Mazda tachometer and the speedometer have separate cables. The tachometer cable probably does not work properly. Change the tachometer cable.
You should hook up the wires for a tach on a 1985 Chevrolet s10 blazer to the negative side of the coil. You should be sure to identify the positive and negative sides of the coil.Ê

Should have four wires: Positive, Ground, Light, and Tach. Put ground first! I made this mistake and took out all the lights in my dash. Hook the tach wire up to the male end on the distributor cap (you'll have to route it through the firewall). Hook the positive up to a nearby wire or open spot in your fuse box. I tapped off the radio. Hook the light into your panel instrument light circuit.
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
Hook up the red wire to the fuse box or another wire that gives power when the key is on. Hook up the white wire to a wire coming out of the headlight switch. This will make is so that when you turn your headlights on, the light will come on on the tach. If you don't mind the light on the tach being on all the time then just hook it to another power wire. Hook the black wire to a ground like a screw or a bolt. The green wire is the signal wire. Run it through your fire wall. Hook it up to the negative side of the coil. There will be a negative sign on the coil denoting the correct side.

The green wire from the tach goes to the negative side of the coil.
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.
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
Its EASY! just connect the (usually green) wire to the negative post on the coil. Hook up the power wires and the illumination wire and ground for the tach wire and ur done its easy!
There should be a tach output connection on the side of the box somewhere, you just plug your tach pickup into that. If it doesn't work you'll need a MSD tach adapter. I'm unsure of the part numbers but there are 2 different ones, it depends on what you used to wire in your ignition. If you used the white wire there is one and if you used a magnetic pickup ( green and violet wires ) there is another one....MSD-8920. I have a sunpro tach and I had to go out and buy an adapter to make it work...for about 50 bucks.
