Iam stumped trying to fix my tach. Found the tach filter but the wire comes from the firewall goes to the filter and the other end comes out with a connector both sides of it but the wire is broke off and can't find where it attaches to the distributor. There's no broken wire where it would be attached it's not the distributor with the coil in it that's separate . Any help would be appreciated. Thanks John

What year? Sounds like 87'+ with the separate coil. I'm familiar with how the 86' and older distributor is for the tach wiring, forget how the 87'+ goes. The stock distributor in the 86' and older has a connector for the signal/filter.

It’s an 88. I can’t find the broken wire that should go somewhere. Nothing has been cut previously it’s still stock right now

Thank you very much. Now at least I have a starting point finding that elusive wire. John
