To add a detail, at first glance you may not notice it. It is on the motor side of the pump and lower. There is a recess and with a light you can see the flat blade that connects with the tach cable. As I recall you remove a bolt, then insert the cable and then return the bolt so it mates with a groove in the cable end to hold it in place. There is a small seal which can be replaced on the tach gear side. When they fail they can pump a bit of oil onto your boot.
