This picture shows the green wire connected to the firewall?? Post 196.
Ok. Thanks for clearin that up, mud. lol In that case, I think you do have an issue with that tach. Throw it in the ditch and see what happens.
Right. That's what I was trying to tell him was wrong.....he seems to say that's been corrected now.
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.
Yeah. What you said. lol
@RustyRatRod @66fyssh: see? I had to read it a few times to get it too..
This and be done with it already...
Yup. Clear as mud. LOL
Ridiculous you don't need to fuel vent.. remember before you did the R&R it ran fine without it...
K.I.S.S.... don't start fixing stuff that's not broken....
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 ;)
Tachs are rpm hearing aids for the tone-deaf anyways....
LOL Between my 1 cylinder yard tractor, 3 cylinder utility tractor, vtwin bikes, 4 cylinder cars and bikes, 6 cylinder jeep, and my v8s, I can't trust a damn thing my ears tell me..
Optical illusion?? Sure looks like the green lead is connected to the firewall.
Yeah, but it wasn't when he last had the car running.
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. 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.
You're a rookie at derailing a thread. Just ask a pro.. snowmobiling anybody?...
I hear they're cheaper than mini bikes..
You heard wrong... My snowmobile is worth 20 mini bikes....
Snowmobiles are stupid expensive. 15-18k for one of those suckers... thats double what I paid for my car
@yellow rose told me it was a POS. lol
