The 'r' terminal is the signal you need to get to the tach.  The generator is a 6 pole device and the ratio on your engine is 2.29-1  So you should select 13.74 pulses/rev or whatever is closest to that.

Note 1 ->For Detroit Diesel Delco gear driven 50DN
            270 Amp 24 volt alternators "R" Terminal hookup
            The "R" terminal output is 12 volt -
            Most 6V92TA's are: (2.93 gears & 6 pulses per Revolution=17.58 pulses/rev)
            Older 6V92's can be(2.75 gears & 6 pulses per revolution=16.5  pulses/rev)
            Older 8V71's can be(2.29 gears & 6 pulses per revolution=13.74 pulses/rev)         
If you ain't part of the solution, then you're part of the problem.

I used a pulse generator that was installed on the tach drive off the blower.  Good Luck, TomC
