Default Tach hookup evinrude

I have a 1983 Evinrude 115 HP that I want to hook a tach to. I've googled
this and I find conflicting information. Most articles I read say the grey
wire is the tach hook up, but I also read that I want the grey wire off the
rectifier. Well.... I have a yellow, yellow/grey and red coming of the
rectifier and then I also have a grey at the terminal block it all hooks to.
see picture of terminal block below.

Also is does this engine use 6 pole tach?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Kevin

The grey tach signal wire should be attached to the yellow/grey rectifier
teminal. For your 115, set the tach switch to 6-pole.
