Re: Connecting OER tic-toc-tac for my 68
Your welcome and yes you could hook the tach directly to the distributor. However you may want to check to make sure you have the wiring correct first. Is it a GM HEI? Do you have anything else connected like a MSD box? Is it connected to the tach pin in the cap? I am running a separate coil so it is easy to make sure it is on the -ve post. You could test the wiring for continuity between the tach and distributor. Be careful you don't want to fry your new tach!
