wiring diagram

Hello,

I purchased a Tic Toc Tach from a '69 442 that I have installed in a '69 Olds Cutlass Supreme. I am needing a wiring diagram or information regarding the posts. There are 3 posts and one small wire (for the lights). Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Jay

Probably one of your best chances at getting a diagram are going to a dealer and hoping they have books that go back that far. My guess is that you have a hot post, a constant and a static ground. No guess on the wire. Good luck man.

Tach

[color=yellow]Doc Here

The posts on the Tach are gonna Be Power (12 volts switched) usually a red wire, Ground usually a Black wire , and Distributer usually a Gray wire, and of course you have found the Lighting..sometimes black, blue, or yellow.

Unless their Marked, there is no way of telling what is what without a Diagram, unless you want to pull it apart and trace the Circuit down (which Requires knowledge of the Circuit)

Some times gages have the letters "I" for ignition, "S" or "D" for sender or Dist, "G" for Ground next to the terminals...are these there?

If still in Business, look them up online and see if they have a diagram.

JBLE, are your brake lights working? Do you have running lights, front and rear? Do the front turn signals work and if so, do they flash faster than normal? I don't know anything about the Falcon wiring, but bet it is the same as the 66 Mustang, which I am very familiar with. and probably have the diagrams you need. Answer the above questions and we can go from there.
