One wire goes to the igntion coil (- negative post or terminal) and one goes to key on power and one to chassi ground, refer to the wiring colors of the tach to ID these wires from the tach to the diff hook up points

Who manufactured the tach? Maybe they have a web site and instructions? Did you tach come with instructions?

I looked at autometer instructions for your vehicle, have to use an adapter, it ties into the power wire for your coil pack. The adapter costs about 97 bucks, not including tax.

Different tach manufacturers may have different hook-ups?

Installing tach on 1997 airstream motorhome with chevy 454 gas power plant need color code for -side coil wire for tach pulse or other way to hook it up


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.
