Subject: FTE Small - Tach lead on 1990 Ranger

I'm looking for the tachometer test lead in the 2.3 1990 base Ranger.
I've read elsewhere that the lead should be tan/yellow while the Haynes
manual seems to indicate it is black/yellow. I can't find either (at
least nothing with a plug on the end) anywhere in the engine compartment
or under the dash. Help! Anyone with a similiar truck who has hooked up
a tach WHERE did you locate the lead and what color is it?
TIA,

Dwight,

I am not sure of the color of the tach wire on this particular vehicle as I
only have access to the info at work. The easiest way to find this wire it
to go to the coil. Use a voltmeter on the AC scale and look for a wire the
goes up when the engine RPM does the same. It will read between 2-12 volts.
It will only read as AC. Put your red lead on wire you are checking and
black lead on a ground anywhere. It will also reado 0 when the engine is
not running. If you are unable to locate this wire then an ODD colored fuel
injector wire will also work. Both are satisfactory but try to find the
tach lead first.
