Check out the schematics at Advance Auto Wire. They will probably be as
accurate as anything else around, including the Leyland "Brown Book". A link

I am doing some electrical work on the 1970 TR6, adding an electronic
tachometer. First go around blew the bsacrifice resistorsb, I seemed to
have mis-wired the thing, as there are only three wires I am most ashamed.
Red power wire: to 12v, fused and switched by the
I found a good place on the lights relay box. No
Black wire: to ground, No Problem
Yellow Trigger wire: to negative terminal on
Problem: My schematic shows the coil white
wire clearly on the - negative side.
BUT on my coil the white wire is connected
to the + plus side of the coil. I have the Pertronix Ignitor system
(the one that just replaces the points).
The car runs great, never any start or run problems.
So where do I connect the trigger wire, when
the instruction state connect the the - negative side of the
coil for a negative ground car b& which the
I really donbt want to blow up the tach again, that is getting to be
Ideas greatly appreciated.
