old sun tachometer hook up from garrell.770

i want to install a vintage 1960s sun tach in my 19
39 chevy truck hot rod, but i do not remember how. it has a red, black, white and green wire. which two are the rpm sensors? will the tach work with an electronic ignition? let me throw two cars i used to own, a red 1967 SS impala with a factory 427, four speed, 4:10 gearing.i bought it when it was four years old and it was immaculate, no accessories except for power steering. a 1963 split window corvette, FUEL INJECTED COUP that was seven years when i bought it. heck, lets make it three cars. a 1963 409 red impala,SS again all low mile original cars. two were bought for under 1200. dollars and the 409 car for 10.000 that i traded for a new 1993 indy pace chevy truck, even. some advantage to being older. thats all folks, thanks. garrell.770 alias hotrod truck

The original Sun Tachometers needed an EB Transmitter to function properly. While you could still use the correct transmitter with a points ignition system, the internal batteries for these transmitters are not available any longer. You would have to build a circuit to stepdown 12v to the required 1.35 volts needed. To be used with an electronic ignition system the transmitter would have to be converted for this purpose. There are several gauge restoration companies that will convert the transmitters for electronic ignition use.
