I have an 87 camaro it has a carburated 305. I have a proform mecanical advance distributor. I have the proper ignition wire hooked up I am not sure on the tach wire. The wire that was in the same connector with the ignition wire hooked to the coil is not it.
Also my tach is not on zero it is either redlined or pegged all the time. any help would be apriciated.

I can't remember if the '87 had a tachometer filter or not...sounds like that might be your problem?? I know that the tachometers in the third generation are notorious for this...very seldom will you find a half-way accurate one.

thank you for your input. I will check and see if there is a filter or not. The chiltons wiring diagram really is not helpful on this year model.
