Default Re: Getting a tach to read properly (Split from: Re: Analyzing ignition misfires)

The last selection has individual coils, and can be adapted for use on our cars.

To my knowledge, the Type II does not allow the tach output lead with the green connector to function at all.

My comments were in reference to the 86-87 configuration.
Magnovox stock replacement MODULE (I don't think the coil has anything to do with the tach out) for 86-87 sold by NOS4GN and now I have lost my tach out signal under the hood behind the alternator. Anyone have a way to get this to work again with the new ignition module?? thanks.
