That's a possibility, I did install custom gauge faces on it.

Does anyone know what the tachometer signal type should be? I think it may be a square wave w/ varying frequencies, but I'm not sure.

Anyone know? If it is infact a square wave it would explain why my digital multimeter does not acurrately measure the output of the tach signal.

Why not pick up a cheap aftermarket tach to check it?

Hmm, I hadn't thought about that... I may try that if I continue having issues.

That's what I did when trying the tach in my '05 before hooking up the Marauder cluster, that way I knew the hook up worked before going through the steps.

Have you still spliced into a single coil wire? That won't work.

You need the main coil feed wire which is pin 34 on C127 (the large connector under the brake master cylinder) on my 1999. It's red with a light green stripe on my car.

I have it wired to a single coil,(cylinder 8 I think), as called for in the wiring instructions. It's a MSD 8913 Tach adapter.

Thats almost the same problem OP had. You read this whole thread right? He had to wire it to the main coil wire to get enough power to make it work right.

I've read it probably 3 times now. Still confused. The instructions MSD gave me contradict what you're telling me to do.

Well, not to be a dick, but its obviously not working with what msd is telling you, right? but OPs is working with the main coil wire. I would give it a shot.

The problem is it's not working at all. When the OP had it wired the "wrong way", he was at least getting 1/8th of the tach signal. I'm getting nothing at all.

Just went ahead and drew a simple diagram and read the instructions online for you Morgan. Texted it to you.

You do indeed need to interrupt the wire I mentioned earlier and run it through the box with the red and red/green wires on the MSD harness.
