    Okay I have an 84 evinrude 150xp and have been scratching my head now for a week, If I grab the loom on the timing base on the port side that runs to the power pack the tach will work. Okay I thought that evinrude gets its tach signal from the stator which runs through the rectifier then the tach, which would be the gray wire.

    Whats your input on this BUBBA ?

    Yes it gets its signal that way. Look up under the fly wheel and see if it has rubbed a place on any of the wires.
