Default Points wiring and tach...

MM to EFI conversion on my 98RK is nearly done. I went points, but it's been a couple decades since I wired one. Can someone verify I got this right;

Power to one side of coil via relay (relay uses start/run switch to engage), wire from the other side of the coil to points. Correct, yes?

Now, with a modern tach, Can I run a wire from one side to the tach, and which side or do I need some sort of circuit to convert?

1998 FLHPI - de-'I'd - EFI to Mikuni/points conversion
1959 XLH - in pieces but not dead yet
1984 XLS - Chop in progress...
