Lost RPM wire

My cluster wasn't working...so i bought another one to put in.

When putting in the new one I couldn't find the Green plug for the RPM, it disappeared on me...everything else works fine but my RPM needle rests at zero...obviously because it isn't plugged in.

my question is...where the hell did it go..where should i be looking?

LOL i know it sounds stupid...but believe me it's lost...obviously i've moved wires around before making this thread.

i've moved wires around, even lied down on my seat upside down to get a different angle, i've had a buddy take a look as well.

still nothing

six pack for any person willing to come and take a look and find it for me, cause i sure as hell have no idea where it could have gone

Sitting for 7 years doesn't necessarily mean it's a good thing...but for $200 u probably can't go wrong.
