proper wire for a tach

I was given a tach that the owner says works but there is no paperwork/instructions; just the tach. I know how to hook it up but I am not an electrician. What is the proper gage wire for the installation? Are all the wires the same gage? I have found wiring diagrams for the unit on-line, but the wire gage is not identified.

The tach is a Sun Supertach II, part number cp7906.

Thanks in advance.

Almost all tachs use 18-14 gage wire (18 gage on the cheaper ones, 14 gage on the better ones). There isn't any heavy current so all wires will work.
