1989 mustang tachometer wiring

hello, I recently purchased a project car. It is a 1989 mustang. the car was originally a 4 cylinder. I'm trying to hook up original tachometer. Does anyone know what color wire is in loom? Is it dark green with a yellow stripe? Any help would be appreciated

Try and get the 89 EVTM from ebay. It's a massive help for any wiring done on the car.

thank you all for your help. i unfortunately put the cart before the horse. i can not figure out ignition wiring i cant keep it running without bypassing ignition. I will have to make a new post about that. I bought someone else's project, and they stopped at wiring. after destroying all old harnesses. I'm trying to put a 302 in a 2.3 body
