Default Where do the wires go on a Sun Super Tach II?

Well, I went out and dropped big bucks ($5) on a Sun Super Tach II from a guy I know. He had it in his truck for a while, but took it out a few months ago. He doesn't remember where the wires are suppose to go.

There is a black wire with a soderless eye on it, a white wire that has about 1/2" stripped back, a green wire and a red wire, both of which look like they were never used.
I presume the black wire connects to the neg side of the coil and the white wire is a ground wire. I figured the green and red wires were probably for the light? Thought I should check before I hooked it up wrong and smoked the thing, I've done things like that before....

Black - ground
Red - switched +12V
Green - negative side of coil
White - panel lights

This is directly off of the tach install instructions, from the one I put in my car a few weeks ago. Good luck.

There should be 4 colored wires coming out of the back of the tach. add extra length to all of them as needed and hook them up as listed in Barn-core's post. Tach's don't usually come with a harness. Just a few inches of wire that you need to splice to.

I have an older tach. 10 years or more. Found it in a old box. No instructions. I want to install it but my colors are black, red , blue and green. Do we think the blue the same as the white?

Got my super tach II sitting here and my wires are red black green and blue. No white. I thought that the blue was for the light.

All these wiring questions can usually be solved by pulling the can, a diagragm is usually pasted on the innards.
