If I was a bit closer mate, I'd do it for you.

Not at all difficult though. Normally just a switched 12v feed that comes live with the ignition, another 12v that is live with the sidelights (for the back light on the tacho), and a wire all the way to the coil. You might have to cut a loop of wire on the back of the tacho to select 4 cylinder operation too.

Some decent wire strippers and ratchet crimpers should be in everyones toolbox smile
