From all of the various tachometers I've purchased:

red +12v (ignition on)
black -12v (ground at all times)
green (-) of ignition coil (signal, can be taken from other sources)
white +12v (dash lights, can be joined to red for constant ilumination)

It seems these new Tim ones have the ability to measure for 4, 6 and 8 cylinders all in one unit. Must have a switch somewhere to select.

Yep, the rev counter does have a switch at the rear from 4 thru to 8 cylinders. I think the colours mention may tally up
Cheers :lol:
