ure car is a diesel isnt it? If so, u probably wont have the green wire (which goes to the coil, as diesels dont hav coils) So i dont know how u would wire it up.
But there must be a way

Correct me if im wrong as im just assuming (as ive never tried to fit a rev counter)

Yeah, like he sort of said, you wont be able to use the dash out of the V reg, as it will have an electronic speedo, whereas, yours is mechanical. You'll need to get dials from an early car with the mechanical driven speedo like yours.
