Probably simply connects to one if the sides of the coil. I can't remember which one exactly.

^^ Yup Attaches to the coil . Instructions should inform you on that part . And if there is a power lead for the night light ? It generally plugs into to your lights fuse or ignition

Aftermarket tachs are a simple four wire hookup. I've never seen one stray from this wiring scheme. Green to the negative side of the coil, red for key on power, white for lighting, and black for the ground.
