I'm moving to the inside work now. What is the best wire from which to get power for my oil pressure gauge? I still have to do radio too.

Also, there are three connections in the printed circuit board for the tachometer. I thought I would run the signal wire directly from the gauge to the distributor, but should I run it from the main instrument panel connector instead? Also, should I be concerned to find some kind of tachometer filter? (this is a stock tach from a forum member).

For the oil gauge, you can tap into the IGN port on the fuse box. The gauge draws very little.

I tapped into that, I think, for all of my gauges. It was one of the open spades on the fuse block and powers all of the gauges just fine. They only receive power when the ignition is on.

I ran tach wire from the distributor and plugged it into the dash harness so the tach gets its signal through the circuit board and it works fine. I did change out my guts with a late '70's Corvette tach guts, the tach face used to be a large fuel gauge as well. I have a filter on it but I don't think it does anything for the performance of the tach.

Info thread on tachs.
