Smile yeah! My tach now works!

I traced the green wire backwards through the wire harness through the firewall and along the front of the firewall right above the master break booster. I twisted the harness around and there right before my eyes was a green wire that was buired in the harness and it was snipped.

I spliced it together and now both my tach and my alarm now works.

The PO who sold me the car said he had the alarm disabled because he lost the key. I was lucky enough to have bought a brand new alarm switch with two keys and replaced it before.

So now I am happy and will replace the face of the tach with the white guage face.

I have been taking digital pictures of the guage face replacement and will be writing an piece for my local PCA chapter on how to do this.

Thanks for the help!

PS the other tach I bought off of ebay did not work - the one that came with the car did.
