@Aaron63Nova You seem to have the original box. What is the part number of the tach that you have? That will tell whether a transmitter is...
Appliance Wheels were made in Japan in the '70's and marked as shown in your picture.
There needs to be a flat spot on the distributor. A later distributor can be modified to work.
