Hey there, thanks for the question.Tach signal on these old trucks should come from the ignition coil in the distributor if I remember correctly. Should be a small 4 pin plug on the back of the cluster that has the tach signal feed.Let me see what I can find literature wise on these old trucks. Not as easy to come by pre-94.
