In need of a good 460 guy to bounce ideas off of

Ok so I have a 1996 F250 with a 460 and a zf5. I am sick of speed density and wanna go to MAF. Well I gathered the parts but it will be a long time coming before I am ready for that kinda nightmare. So in the mean time I am going with a price motorsports adapter and going to run a carb/hei dizzy. I can wire it all in easily and maker run but does anyone know what to do with my gauges. Primarily my tach. I need them to be stock and work. Everything else should work AKA fuel, oil psi, volts, temp.

Any wisdom would be awesome, Thanks

I'll have to pull the book out weds when I get back home but If I remember right you can apply 12v to one wire of the tach sensor and just leave the other hooked to the guage package. I'll get you a better description after Iget the book out though. They are actually really simple to wire. About a 30 minute job once you know what colorcodes to look for.

That's what I thought cause my 98 ranger is a single wire for the tach. I didn't think it would be different. I've got wiring diagrams out the rear but just haven't looked. Everyone I talk to says I am gonna hate it being a carb rather than efi. I could fix my speed density for dirt cheap and run it but idk I like to piss with things that don't need pissed with lol

The white and pink wire that runs to the stock coil will be plugged into the tach feed on the hei is that simple. The way I was thinking of in the earlier post was to use a 7.3ltr tach sensor. No other wiires should need to be moved for the tach.
