Post Tachometer wiring

Rooting thru an old box of mine I found an old tachometer I figured I could put to good use in my 28 Ford coupe. The problem is I don't remember how to hook up the wiring. I have 5 wires. Black(ground), yellow, green, red, and blue.
Can anyone help as to how to hook it up? It looks like an old Sun tachometer.
Thanks

Hey, Bullheimer -- there's a simple black & white drawing on the site-link posted above, and there ARE 4 wires of the same colors you said you have ... and the pic shows where they go, too -- only the dang picture is so small, I can't read anything or figure out where the wires are going to!
