Default aftermarket tachometer wiring

Hello all,
My son owns a 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 engine with a manual transmission. He purchased a aftermarket tachomater andI am not sure how to connect the green distributor / coil wire. I dont know much about this car but I dont see a coil and there is no center wire from the distributor cap. Anyone with any experience on where this wire connects too? Thanks for any help.

Kevin

You can get tach at any injector. Get a digital multimeter with a good set of test leads, set it to AC and connect to the uncommon wire at the fuel injector (there are 4, so just pick one). You should see roughly 1 volt AC (could be as low as .6), and it will rise and fall with the motor's speed. Strip that wire back, take a pick tool and makea hole in the wire and insert the wire going to the tach into it. Wrap tightly around the injector wire, solder and tape. Add a zip tie for stress relief, and there ya have it, TACH!!!

lol, good luck.

Easy is relevant. I do this every day so it's kinda second nature, sorry if it sounds overly simple. Once you know what you're doing it's not really that bad.

Default Tach Signal Found !!

To everyone out there,
i found the tach signal!
on the distributor, there will be a plug (7-pin plug)
looking at the plug, you have a black wire (1),
followed by a white wire (2), there are two white wires,
strip back a section of the white wire next to the black wire OR cable splice it using a connector, this will give you a tach reading,
goodluck to all

Default tach signal

I assume this connector is also on a 1999 Mirage DE Coupe M/T?
