Can any of you guys help me out??

If any of you have a blown up ATX (PC) power supply lying around I'd would love to have the ATX connecter + cable. This is why:

I bought this SPA tachometer for my track bike but there were no connecting cables. I know I've seen this kind of cable before and I'll bet anything its part of the ATX power cable that connects to your motherboard. The whole ATX plug is wider but I should be able to chop off a piece. The stupid thing is I just chucked one out last week. :banghead

If you can help me out that would be great. Thanx

If you still need that connector let me know, there are plenty of them at work.

Sorry the scan sux, can't get it any better though.
I also have no idea what colour connects where, I just took the tach apart and couldn't find any numbers or colours. Think I might have to give SPA a ring and order the connectors with the correct colour coded wires. or can you make any sense of the diagram?

The bottom right text reads:

[1] Do not connect the braid insulate (what's that then??)
[2] Diagram shows typical ignition system but may need wiring differently for others systems
points ignition, black to chassis, red to coil tacho output, red to output, black to chassis try reversing the red and black connections if the engine rpm is not registering or is not stable

I'll have a look tomorrow for some connectors. You'd pay shipping, though.

I sent an email to SPA UK, so I'll wait what they have to say about it all.

I found 2 ATX connectors and some ATX like connectors (4 extra pins on one side, black). Can take a photo tomorrow. Pay shipping if you need one.

you know, I can't remember who right now but someone on here was nice enough to send me a copy of the manual last year. I have it in my race trailer with the gauges. It's not very easy to get at at the moment but maybe they have the scans to post.
