You need to load photos onto a host site like Photobucket, then coy the IMG text from that site into your message - it's easier than it sounds!  :)

ok, even easier... you have two coils
look at the wires they have, you will end up with THREE different colours as they both share a colour, pick one of the others preferably on the front coil

Holy shit I'm glad I pulled to the side before reading that  ;D ;D

But hopefully there will come come photos later, but I was actually also talking about the spark plug wire ;)

if you dont want to modify the loom, or have limited soldering skills, the best way is to get a piggyback spade connector: disconnect the coil wire from the coil, crimp the piggyback to the new tacho wire, attach that to the coil, attach the coil signal wire you disconnected back onto the coil via the piggyback.

if you dont know what one is:


as far as sparkplug wires go, i thought youd have understood that thats the OUTPUT from the coil, and not the signal input . attach that to your tacho and kiss your money goodbye. 20,000 Volts zapping & frying your electronics many times per second. :D :D :D

I hope I finally figured out how to put in photos :)
This is a photo of the speedometer, coil and the wire I'm sure you are talking about:)

Those crimp connectors anywhere near those ignition coils is the worst idea ever. Good luck when your stuck at the side of the road in the pissy rain wishing you learned how to heat up a piece of metal and flux a wire. If you desperately want to use a crimp connector then get the ones with the rubber boots not those plastic crummy ones which degrade in a year or two and the plastic falls off.

Take the time now rather than wishing you did waiting for recovery or worse the fire department.

Well i don't know what method I will use yet, because the main thing is to find that wire. I tried a few thing but I simply can't make that needle jump
