Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
I hooked all other wires up except the green. It says to hook to the negative side of coil. Maybe i should tap into the tach on the dash
The green wire from the tach goes to the negative side of the coil or if its an HEI distributor it will connect to the left of the hot wire going. to the distributor.

Sounds like you are getting power to everything but the engine.
Was there a ground wire to the head that you may have left off ?
Hope this helps

That should be the white wire rom the dist to coil. eather way you will not hurt the tach if you were to get it wrong. There are only two wires. I would look at the distributor and on the top of the cap there it writing and it will say tach an you can plug it directli into that.
