of the 2 white wires on the coil negative, the thinner white is for the tach....maybe check this connection at coil.

this white leads to the 'white' 6-wire connector block behind the dash, then on to the large 8-wire red connector block inside the monopod.

It is not too difficult to get inside the monopod, then you could maybe test continuancy of said wire from this connector block back to coil.
