    wont crank

    thanks problem solved late last night. the bolt for the starter sol that the batt cable hooks to is loose inside the sol. dont know how this could happen the cable is tight???? going to try to tighten before i buy a new sol. tach update i think the tach term on the back of the tach fctory in dash tach must be touching the metal gauge cluster housing every time i plug it in it blows the ing fuse thanks again dave

I was trying to trace the tach prob not hooked to the ign not it wont crank I could always hear a click when turning the key on an still do. is there anythingon the fire wall near the boster or dist that i could have knocked loose???? I did check all the fuses never had a starter prob a
  4. hi my friend put the firestones on his 69 gto he did not like the traction wet or dry also was unhappy with the wear. every one i know is going coopers. i just put cooper street tires on my wifes suv so far so good. i am also told the cobras grip is great. cooper for my next set
  5. hi my msd connects to the tach term and the power term.per their directions. i did try to hook the tach to that spot were it belongs with no luck.. i am going to try and runa jumper from the tach wire on my truck to the tachlead on the monte just to see if the tach in the dash is working or i have another prob. if the tach does work then i guess i have to switch back to stock hei without the msd until i can afford a new one...... anybody got one for sale affordable it can be an old 6-a as long as it works
  6. thanks the car is in the garage its hot but not like out in the sun...... when i dd the msd the instructions told me to use the wire term on the left side of the box looking at it i also am running a hei style dist mybe that why i am going to try to check thing tomorrow, it is supposed to be 97 so if i can stay cool enough with the fans i,ll give it a shot

I know i have power to the cluster because everything else it feds works. i am going to make sure i have rpm read from to the plug... next i want to jump from the tach wire lead to the back of the gauge, can anyone tell me which terminal on the back of the fauge i would run a jumper to. note when i first crank the car the tach jumps up to 1000 rpm for a split second also it is a new circuit board (IT IS A MATCH FOR THE OLD ONE) also am running msd box so the tach wire co

    fuel gauge

    good news I figured it out. I knew my sending unit was working , I took a spare battery grounded it to the car used the wire from the car sender did ground to the ground on the gauge out of the car and hot the gauge in the dash still did not work but my old big gauge did.. I then took the new gauge ou of the dash hooked it up and it worked.. the answer the sending stud on the gauge was touching the dash housing,, i enlarged the holes in the dash housings used the insulator and bolted the gauge in place with no contact to the housing. I did the same process for my new volt gauge. all w
