    I need help asap was installing a tach in my k5 and everything worked at first then it died and will not start back up does anyone have any ideas.....Jason

    As of the morning of the 31st the truck is running again all I did was unplug the wire that I plugged into the tach spot on my HEI distributor and she started right up now why is this I am drawing a blank as to why it did this because when I first installed the tach she started and ran for about 10 sec then died so what is the deal is there any where else I can tie that wire into other than on the distributor.....Jason
