I can't get my tach to work...!

This is on my YJ but it is an 89 and has the same setup that most of you CJ kids are running here is a link to the thread in the YJ forum. Any help would be great. I would like to fix this before I head to florida next week but if I don't oh well.

You tried the monsterslayer writeup? Not sure how similar that is to your setup.... And I believe the tach does run to coil negative, but it sounds like you've got something else going on.

I just recenlty installed a tach on a cj. If everything else is hooked up (i.e. pwr, lights) as far as I can tell you just need the wire from the (-) coil terminal to the tach.

sweet then all I have to do is figure out which wire coming off the tach to use... hmm I'll get that done tomorrow.
Thanks hopefully I will have figured out before the weekend.
