Tach signal wire on dist'less v6 ign.

My wife picked this truck for me while gone for the war. I could'nt have done better myself, except that this 5-speed v6 had no tach- how can you pass anyone without- just let the rev-limiter shut it down? I need the tach for other reasons, too. The ignition is wired like a rocket bike's- one coil for every 2 cylinders. On my bike, the signal comes from the computer to the tach. Does anyone know how I can find out how to connect my aftermarket tach's signal wire? Any advise greatly appreciated. -Jeffy.

Re: Tach signal wire on dist'less v6 ign.

If it uses the ignition block, it will likely run from the computer to the tacho, just like your bike.
I know the Falcons use a pink/blue wire, better get a manual or ask a sparky to find out which wire it is...

Re: Tach signal wire on dist'less v6 ign.

Thanks for your response to my inquiry. I will investigate as to which wire it is. It takes good people to help others, while expecting nothing in return. I've been out of country for a while- what is a Falcon? I only remember those from the -60's. Hey, I like your quote. -Jeffy.

Hehe cheers on the quote :)

A Falcon is an Australian car, large sedan with a 4L I6 motor. Has been around for donkey's years, and IMO is the basis of Ford's car sales in Australia.
Goes bloody hard too!

Anyhoo, good luck with the tacho wire, can't stand driving a car w/out one, myself.
