A points system wiring is simple. All you need is a switched hot wire. Connect that to a coil that has a primary resistance of 5 to 6 ohms, (a early points ignition Sportster coil will work) on one side with the points connected to the other side of the coil. The points grounds the circuit causing the magnetic field to build up. When the points open, the field collapses creating the spark in the secondary side of the coil going to the plug. If it's a single cylinder engine, simply buy a coil for an early points type automobile engine. You want a primary resistance of 5-6 ohms to keep the system from drawing too much current.

Good Luck
Steve

Hooking up a tach on a 89 harley sportster 883, green wire goes to ignition wire, where and what color is the wire?


Most aftermarket tachometers will employ a 3 wire system. A "power" wire, a "signal" wire and a "ground" wire. On a stock Sportster's ignition coil there will be 2 terminals/posts. 1 post will have a set of white wire on it the other a blue or pink wire. White is switched 12VDC (vehicle power) and the blue/pink is the secondary side of the coil (signal). I'd really need more information to be most helpful.
