The Tach wire DOES NOT provide spark...

However , it will be the white wire from the body harness, that used to plug into the Old HEI unit..

Spark for your MSD will come from the Switched Ignition , a 12 gauge orange or Purple..It will only have 12 volts on it when the Key is on.

Depending on what engine came out..

The White wire goes to the computer and the tach..nowhere else.

If your not running the factory computer than it will only go to the Tach.

The Pulse is an OUTPUT to the computer from the HEI, not an INPUT, and serves as a reference pulse for Computer signal coordination..should you be running FI, TBI, or EFI..and the whole sensor pack for the engine.

The only way your going to find that out, is to unwrap the harness bundle and follow the wire out...The stock diagram offers no information about it..just white wire from Tach to HEI module, then into the computer ...Pin D4..

It also shows no other white wire.
