I know the tach wire goes to the end of the distributor but I cannot find it.  Can someone tell me the color?

It is not shown in the wiring diagrams.

I may be wrong, but I don’t remember any factory GMC MH tachometer , so there wouldn’t be a wire.

That "tach" connector in the HEI cap was for the Handy Dandy GM diagnostic
console used in the dealerships. These were made/marketed by Kent-Moore to
authorized GM dealerships only.
Independent Garages had to make do with Snap-On, or other vendors
for those big expensive machines. I have used both kinds, and they all have
specific good and bad points. There are hand held devices today that do
much the same tasks on modern stuff. We use software programs for laptops
for the EFI stuff as well.

Emory,
Thanks for the reply, as it’s the only message I have received from the net.
Wonder what happened, is just me or has the net been down?
