Cool Tachometer and coil

Hi all!

I am BRAND new here in the forum!

I have a Samurai SJ413 1986 model.

I canīt get the tachometer to work! I guess there is a wire supposed to connect to the coil that is wrong/connected to wrong place? which one it is or to where to connect I don't know.

There is a black/white wire going to a connector and in to dash or ignition key I guess. How ever, I can not turn of engine on key. As long as this wire is connected to coil it runs, even if I turn off key!

A red wire coming from the harness on the torpedo wall and connects to coil +. a black connector and yellow wire with clip connecting to - pole on coil. These two wires comes from same protective sleeve.

Engine starts but tachometer not working.

It did work previously, before I removed an old rev control unit for the car running as tractor with 30 kmh limit for youth drivers.

Welcome to the forum.
This is from the SJ413 I used to own. The white wire connects to the black/white from ignition switch.

Default problem solved!

On my Samurai the brown cord, connecting to brown/white to tacho was changed for a red wire! This caused me to, judged by the color, connect it to + when in fact tacho should connect to negative pole on coil! Thanks to the picture of the original coil above it is now working like a charm!
