Plug pin configurations is 10 pin, 8 pin, and 10 pin again, different to the Ronnie's guide. What are thoughts on this?

Wired the cluster to as much as I could the same as Ronnie's with my odd cluster. Looks like almost everything works. Only problem I'm having is that when the headlights are off, the clock is lit up in the dash and when the headlights are on the clock light turns off. If I leave it like this it will certainly flatten my battery.
The other thing I need to know is, my truck is a carb Z24 that never had a tacho, can I simply run a wire from the coil, through a 2.2k resistor and into a pin on the back of the cluster? If so which pin will I need to do this through?

Are either of the clock wires red/green or pink/blue. Pink/blue is for illumination. On newer trucks red/green is the clock wire.

I'm not at the truck at the moment but I'm pretty sure in that plug (D I think it was), I had Red and Green,Green and White and Pink and Blue wired to it?

So any clues as to how you can make the cluster tacho work if your truck never came with one. I have a wire already on my coil from an aftermarket tacho, can I wire that to the cluster through a resistor?

I don't know. The signal on the newer trucks goes through the ECM before going to the instrument cluster but I'm not sure if it sends the same signal out to the cluster.

If someone had access to their ECM could they measure the resistance of the pin out from the ECM at say 2,000 RPM and then I just need to use a resistor that gives the same impedance?

You have to run a wire from the ecu to the tach, going to the coil wont work

My truck is a carb z24. Far as I knew I don't have an ecu.
