I saw you replied to my post about tachs, but thought I would repost since my previous one was already pretty well-buried. Rich says to tap into a red/green wire at the fuse block, and a red/green wire at the steering column. The wire at the steering column is the resistance wire, what is the one at the fuse block? I assumed it was just a 12V switched source, am I wrong? When he says "tap" does he mean to cut the wire completely, or leave the wire intact, just hooking the new tach line to it? Thanks alot, I appricate the help!

Tap in this case means to splice the new wire into the existing wire.

The tachometer lead is in series with your ignition coil, unlike EVERY other car manufacturer. So if your car starts and runs with the tach disconnected, something isn't right. Good luck.
