Still troubleshooting my recently installed electrical system...
Things that might be important...
New AAW harness
MSD 6AL, Blaster 2 coil, and 8360 Ready to Run Distributor
New OER tachometer
I'm just using the car battery with the key turned on. I haven't reached the point of starting the engine, I'm just op checking all my electrical systems first.
- I thought it was probably a bad ground, and spent a great deal of time sanding contact points and installing star washers, but no joy. I may end up stringing a bunch of wires direct to the negative terminal later today in search.
- I checked all the bulbs, and they are the same 1157 and work very brightly.
- One anomaly is that the when the LEFT blinker is on, the left indicator flashes, but so does the the "BRAKE" light (weakly) and the tach needle bounces in sync slightly.
I don't have a tach filter installed...I was going to go to Radio Shack to build JimM's filter today.
EVERY wire in the car is new (except the dome light leads, the headlight relays, and the front parking light assembly leads)...from inside steering column to the taillights to the headlights...
Any thoughts for the electrically challenged???
