Without knowing what sort of a car and is it a 6 or an 8 or a 4 cylinder then the coil is usually under the bonnet!Seriously find your distributor most of the leads go to your sparkplugs and the one that goes to somewhere else is your coil,you will need the negative side of your coil to run a tacho.Disconnect it turn on your ignition and positive will read on your testlight or multimeter it's the other wire you need.I would suggest you do some research first so you know how things work.Google is your friend.Let us know how you get on.Kevman :)

OK... to answer your earlier question, the coil is on the side of the engine under the intake manifold near the head.

What document are you looking at regarding the conversion?

Looks fairly straight forward...

I will make use of that myself when I try to figure out how to graft the digital part of the guage into the cluster of a fairlaine....
