Its kinda under the cap. If you're staring down on the distriputor cap you will see a little square piece that comes out on the driver side. It will have a clip with 3 wires going up to it then a single clip with a red wire. Right next to that wire is where the tach plugs in. It should say batt where the red wire is then tach

oisinirish is an unknown quantity at this point

Did you find one that fits in the stock cluster or are you mounting somewhere else?
