    I have a 350 (1976) with the stock HEI. I've found a good tahcometer to fit in the stock location, but I really don;t understand where to hook the tach lead to. It originally didn't come with a tach. Is there a place for it to hook to?<br>I've replaced the cap/rotor/coil before and didn't see anything that looked like ti could be a lead for a tach. Anyone?<p> -- Mike<p>BTW, I've always wondered why they don;t make an inductive tach hookup, like on my timing light. Could hook it up to one of the back wires and no one would ever see it. Super accurate!<br>

    I put an aftermarket tach on my 83 with HEI, and it was pretty easy, just a plug in connector on the underside edge of the cap that was labeled &quot;tach&quot;. I'd call the company that made your aftermarket stuff and ask them if there's an easy way to do it.
