My van does have an aftermarket tach, so that must be the answer to why the telephone wire was used. One of the previous owners was an "industrious" person who didn't half ass anything.

So.....

resistance of old G28, newer G28 and G28 in other ABA Vanagon: ~ 515 Ohms. Bentley spec: 500 - 700 Ohms. Moving wires on old G28 where they enter sensor did not change resistance.
