Need help wiring my cluster

I have a 1980 Camaro, and adding Z28 parts, I have removed my Cluster and installed a 1980 Z28 cluster, I need to know how to re-wire it to work right. I have already ran a wire from my distributor for the Tach, I just need to know where on the big plug to put it.. Nothing on my Cluster is working at this time.

Any help would be appreciated.

Can I add that a bad ground is worse than no ground?

what I did was run a wire from the coil, to the main plug on the cluster. Someone else on this board pointed to a diagram, that showed multiple wires had to be moved on the main wire harness, and the coil wire ran to the number one plug. Once I did this and put the cluster in place, Cranked the car and my RPM guage is now working fine. Thanks to all the help.. Now, I see a couple of you said Ground. On the back of the RPM guage are 3 stluds with plastic looking screws of some sort are tight on them, Nothing is coming off of any. I have no idea, if I need to do anything there.
