Welcome to Ford Forums ratboy!
Does your rev counter (tacho) come with wiring instructions?
Most have 4 wires that need connecting. I'll have a guess at the colours which may vary depending on brand. You can buy a set of crimping plyers and various plug ends that make wiring everything nice and tidy.
1. Red: wire into 12V ignition wire.
2. Black: connect to earth/chassis frame
3. White: connect to dash lighting
4. Green: Connect to coil negative terminal (tacho signal input)
Happy rev counting
