Hi All:
I'm working on installing gauges/tach in my car. I'm using a Factor Fit wiring harness and I have a question on the tach. To hook up the power to the tac/clock, the instructions say "Plug the orange wire with the single pin type connector to the clock power terminal on the back of the tachomter" I have an OER tach I got from Classic Industries and I don't see a pin connector on the back of the tach??? There is a threaded "post" on the back but that actually looks more like it holds the tach together rather than where a power wire would go?? Can anyone tell me where it is exactly I connect this connector to the tach????

Thanks!!

On an original, the wire is connected to a brass pin in about the 4 o-clock position on the housing (when looking at the back). It also has "12V" stamped into the case next to the pin. I'm not familiar with the reproductions. They should be at least close to the same, though. Is the threaded post on the back of yours insulated from the metal case?

I do have a threaded stud at the 4'oclock position. Since there is nothing else, that has to be it.
