You can do the wiring I spoke of (plugging the two wires together) right through the hole in the instrument panel. While you're in there, fish a new wire through the hole as well for the new connection you'll need. No need to be pulling that whole thing out.

IMHO, ideally you should run a new wire from ~the ignition key to the coil. That way, you avoid running the current to the coil through a crummy old multipin connector TWICE. The wires themselves usually present no problems, but old Lucas connectors often do.

Good point, Joachim. I'm just presenting the easiest way to go about it.  Though, if I remember a few posts back he was speaking of keeping the resistor wire in place so using the existing connectors might still be the way to go.

My main point (and I keep seeing it come up here, asking how to remove the instrument panel) is that the tach comes out of the instrument panel so easily. I just hate to see someone spending half a day to remove the instrument panel when it's a 5 minute job to pop the tach out.
