You can hook up a tach to the negative on your coil, right?

    I bought one of those MSD ready to run billet distributors, and it doesn't have a terminal for a tach. In my opinion that is not so ready to run if you have to buy an MSD controller just to have a tach. An MSD offroad box is further down the road, but I can't afford one right now. I called MSD and the tech guy said to just run the tach off of the negative terminal of the coil...I've never heard of that before and wondered if any of you had tried it?
