you can diode isolate (using 2 diodes) the rear defroster output so it can trigger the clutch switch and the defroster switch.

using a multimeter set to AC, ground black probe and use red probe on tach wire and rev the engine. meter should increase according to engine speed.

In regard to the tach wire behind the cluster all i can say it works fine for me with a DEI Python. The only way to tell is to use it but recommend a solder joint and not a T tap.
