I was wandering if anyone knows how to hook up a tach in a 1984 rabbit that didn't have one. I'd like to just run a pod instead of a cluster swap and I am 100 clueless how to install one.

I thought all gassers had tachs?

4 Wires. 2 for illumination 2 for the tach. Did a install diagram come with the unit? if yes follow the directions. If no, for illumination, one ground wire one positive wire. Connect the positive lead to #15 on the coil and the ground to an unpainted metal surface. For the tach, connect the positive lead to #1 and the other lead to an unpainted metal surface. This might work then again maybe not. This hookup allows the light to come on as soon as you turn on the ignition and unless you have directions to the contrary, follow the correct information for the tach.
