Wiring Utility vehicle tachometer

I scored a couple of old Cushman Brand Tachometers that were probably used in Cushman Trucksters for correctly metering out products made for maintaining golf course turfgrass. My Cushman golfster has the same engine that these turf trucksters used in the 60s on up for several more years. I would like to mount one of these tachs in my golfster just for fun, but have no clue as to where in the electrical grid to mount the two wires that are coming out of the back of the tach. These turf vehicles and mine used coils and old school points and condensers. (I'm thinking that a signal that was sent from the points out of the distributor would be what triggered the the tach needle to register the rpm and the other wire went to ground,,but do not want to fry this classic tach experimenting with live wires.
