      You don't need a tac for your shift points. You just hold first gear to the floor until the nose drops down and the valves start floating then you go ahead and hit second then you let it rev up till the front end dives down a little bit and the valves are floating and it's not going any faster and then you hit 3rd... EASY...

        He stated that was just to keep the green wire out of the way ;)

        I assumed the same thing at first though, so I get the misinterpretation.

                  Exactly. They can help in some instances, but there's no point spending a significant chunk of change just to have it. Fixing the ignition issue is very likely to fix the random dying.

                  Spend the fuel system money on gas and enjoy the car for a while!

                  Then do the AC to keep the wife happy ;)

                      Optical illusion?? Sure looks like the green lead is connected to the firewall.

                          I think the only time I really looked at tbe tach is when I was trying to set my shift points when we rebuilt the transmission and I added the throttle cable.

                            Oh, now I understand. :BangHead:

                            Sometimes it takes awhile for me, lol.

                            I'm trying to follow along so I can learn and maybe help if something comes up I have run across before.

                              It was connected to the negative post on the coil. I disconnected to see if that is what was causing the coil to fire prematurely. Which it was.

                              Haha I'm trying to follow along too. I have a habit of getting threads derailed pretty quickly. Especially when I have a hard time explaining different things.
