Porsche 928s Tacho Signal

Hey everyone, new here.
Recently I purchased a 1985 928s automatic. I have no signal going into the tachometer and wanted to check where the tachometer signal is originating from. I have replaced the tachometer and cleaned the connections on the back of the pod. If someone could tell me where the signal originates from I'd appreciate it.

Do you have a wiring diagram, and do you know where the EZF is located? If so, that's where it comes from. Starting at the inst panel its via connector B-2, out on a green wire to J-11 on CE panel, loops out to W-11 on same panel to EZF-16.

the signal is from a reed switch attached to the outer housing of the transmission. IIRC, it is a round sensor held down by one screw.....you should be able to see it.

Gary are you talking about the round thing bolted to the rear of the transmission?

Sorry for the extremely late reply, been swamped with school work. Thanks for the replies everyone. I do have a wiring diagram and I see now the trace back from the tachometer to the EZF. My new question is when measuring connection B-2, should i be looking at the voltage or something else? I measured in voltage today and was getting at idle ~12volts, when i depressed the gas peddle the voltage would drop slowly. No life in tachometer still.
