Pretty straightforward... hot, ground, dimmer, and pickup.
Problem is I can't seem to get a signal anywhere with the pickup wire it says to wire to the negative side of the coil and I've wired it there are well as the negative wire running into the distributor...
So where do I wire it?

Did you have the tac. grounded when you tested it?
There may also be a switch on the back the needs to be set to 4 cylinder before it works correctly.
Hope this helps

The backlight works when it's grounded and when I wire the positive wire the needle adjusts itself to 0 rpm (as opposed to sitting lower).. but that's it. if I tap the pickup wire on things the rpm goes up.. but otherwise the rpm is rock steady 0. The engine is running too... :-\

* One wire to the Positive of the ignition coil.
* One wire to the negative of the ignition coil.
* One wire to the negative of the battery.
Simple as that.

Just now I could get the tach up to 3000 rpm by tapping the ground wire on the engine ground... but I could not get it to stay there.. (even when i bolted it there).. might open up the tach just to look (2 screws).
