Hey was just poking around my truck and found these 2 wires coming off the ignitor they are just cut and bundled up.

Well that would be sweet!! I was goin to throw a tach in it next week! Might have 1/2 the wiring done now lol
Surprising they are still nice and soft! The dirty might make them appear worse. Yes the ywill be routed better, i have some loom for that.
The tach connects to the negative terminal of the ignition coil, the positive and negative wires from the tach need to connect on the switched side of your ignition switch. I can't tell by looking at the pic above where the second wire's connected to you need to remove the black cover from the coil.

So your saying the green and black shoulnt both be hooked up. The black should be grounded to the frame?
