    The OEM fuse block connectors are pretty poor. I would just bit the bullet and get the DMC fuse block kit. When you do one circuit at a time you can really clean up the tangles in the harness so it...

    I would guess it to be ignition because I don't think fuel problems can change that quickly. Anyway intermittent electrical problem due to vibration seem to crop up. Your ignition resistors...

    Have you used springs from old pens?

    I think it is critical for the calibration. You get 15 to 16 inches/Hg at idle so you just want them to open when you take your foot off the gas.

    I just got another used throttle assembly. I guess you could find some springs but you would need to test and calibrate the unit. I would guess they open around 20 inches/Hg

    Yes ignition advance on at idle will increase the RPM if your idle system can not compensate.

    My car had the same problem and it was the springs on the deceleration valves were bad. You can see...

    In stock wiring, the headlights run their ground through the connector at the washer bottle and back to the relay compartment with two 12 AWG wires. I don't know why they did not use the frame for...

    If your battery reads 9.8 volts without any loads, it is pretty much fully discharged. Yes that probably causes the relay to chatter.

    I had a Hervey alternator and guess I got lucky and it's still going strong in another D. I've heard a few complaints about the Hervey alternator squealing.

    I think the stock otterstat is 96 C on and 88 C off. That would be 204.8 F and 190.4 F

    Most likely the flex circuit board in the binnacle is the cause for bad connection.

    A many tooth tach wheel on the crank would give you much faster RPM response readings even with an even fire engine. The odd fire engine you have to use two ignition pulses to measure RPM which even...

    You set your dwell with the hot engine. What your seeing are pretty small changes. Are you reading dwell or duty cycle? I ask because WOT reads 60% duty cycle. I still think your dwell adjustment...

    That looks better. What happens is when current is abruptly stopped (driver turning off), the magnetic field collapses and that induces a voltage in the coil. That voltage can than ring (oscillate...

    That may work. I would have put 12 volts to the coil and the other side of the coil to the tach input and the driver (transistor or MOSFET).

    The RPM relay requires greater than a 12 volt pulse. As stated by FABombjoy, that inductive spike is needed to get higher than the cars 12 volts. The stock idle ECU is the same (greater than 12 volt...

    It's great your making progress. I would suggest your WOT switch is intermittent. I've seen a few go bad. Just unplug one of the wires off the switch and see if that cures your problem.
