    FWIW- It seems odd to me that the voltage droped over time, especially since the RPMs rasied too.

    ...not sure how accurate your gauge is, but it should be reading around 14.2V instead of 13V after...

    That is for both. The plug with Black and Light Green with Green tracer is not used on manuals, if present.

    YW!
    Yeah, they can act odd if not installed to specs, but it seems it would be more consistent anyway....Unless the dash tach is way more sensitive than the Actron, I wouldn't think the trigger...

    I'm leaning toward the W/S or tach as well.
    Maybe coincidence, but it getting worse after having the binnacle off and other work might indicate a bad connection.

    The black and purple wires being in the same slot is normal.

    The left dash indicator, front indicator and rear indicator bulbs are tied together, directly - If one burns, they all should.

    If...

    A lot of D owners use an ACTRON Tach Dwell Voltmeter Model CP7605 to set their dwell. (Another for $22.99 total, used.) Like many others, you simply set the switch to "RPM", connect the Black clip...

    $.03

    Reversing the polarity on the coil will not hurt it, but it will reduce the spark. And, if the coil is causing the needle to jump, you should be able to hear the engine miss.

    With all of...

    You might try connecting a handheld tach and see if it also jumps -- Could be a loose connection feeding the dash tach (but no problem to the distributor).

    I'd suggest (re)checking the pulse ratios at D:04:15, 5 in the WSM.

    P.S. Congrats!

    If a plug wire is going to the wrong cylinder, that cylinder (and the cylinder the wire is supposed to go to) will fire at the wrong time, if at all.

    I would shoot the cylinder head next to the gauge sending unit and compare it to the gauge's reading.

    Shooting the radiator's inlet and outlet can tell you a lot.

    What's bugging me here is that the thermostat shouldn't let the temp drop below 195 F, and, 220F is acceptable.
    Not to mention that the gauges are not known for accuracy.

    But I have to agree...
