It's just a small flared fitting at the back of the gauge.

If I remember well, I used an 8mm wrench. This is almost an accessible part compared to other dashboard items but I don't have a tach on my Six.
Best of luck.

It is as above noted - The fitting is (on my '63) a 1/8" tubing compression fitting. Replaced the grungy engine compartment "rubber" hose w/ a section of nylon flex tubing (supplied for oil gages) from one of the local parts places (required anadapter to join the two ends). Some car people do not like the nylon,however, it is supplied w/ many of the top line gage systems.

Will take a 3/8 or 5/16 Line wrench. Once wrench is on, wiggle gently back and forth until loosens. It is a soft metal, important to be patient.
