    so you have a 6a ignition box? Look on the end of it, the end w/ the purple/green wires and there will be a black ring. You can put a spade terminal in the center of that and run the tach off it.

    Thats where I run mine, actually that is where autometer says they have to be run if you are using an aftermarket ignition box.
