The bike still runs on one cylinder but with a lot less power and will be very hard to start if you stall it. The tach MAY go to zero when this happens. Typically this lasts about 2 – 15 seconds and then may cut back in and run normally. Sometimes it will not run at all at low rpm. Tach is also at zero or may jump around wildly. Bike backfires badly, etc Gets worse when its hot. In outboards they’re called “Powerpacks” or “Pulse packs”.
The problem is that people fit voltmeters wired to the green circuit, which can be a couple of volts lower than the solenoid i. It’s battery voltage which is important, and any volt-drop between there and the green circuit is down to ageing connections, and the best alternator in the world isn’t going to cure them, although it may cover them up. This was the case in the 5-pin 2-plug 16ACR from 69 to

After one minute at fast idle, I tapped the accelerator to slow the idle and the electrical system shut down completely. Dead as a door nail. No lights, no horn, no nothing. When a vehicle has lost all power and those accessories such as you have described, the only wise approach is to diagnose the cause in a logical sequence. Is the battery in real good shape? In your case you should begin at the battery and follow the power path from the battery to the various junctions and connections downstream.
From your description though your issue sounds strongly like the classic bad battery cable connections at the battery or ground at the engine and frame. Let us know what you find. Sincerely, Posted by Bill at 4: My 79 Mark V has the autolamp system which allows for auto dimming of the headlights from high to low beam and has the delay feature for the lights to stay on after the car has been shut off. My question is do you set the flag dial to the right and left of the headlight switch with the headlights off on the car??
The reason why I ask is when I turned the lights on the other day and tried to move the flag dials they were both real loose.. I am not sure if it is broken and I need to replace the whole switch..

Wasted spark with multiple coils It can also support coil per plug in some installs. For wasted spark you require a minimum of single “missing tooth” crank wheel, only engines with an even number of cylinders being supported. You need at least for 4cyl, for 6cyl or for 8cyl. However, the wheel is probably the easiest to obtain.
The MSD system wires hook up directly to the pick up coil in the bottom of the housing, and route out to the ignition box to give you an idea of how much more powerful MSD boxes are, remember that the red box takes the place of the module that’s usually in the bottom of the housing , where it’s processed to the coil and tach and then to an external coil.
Remove the distributor cap, right valve cover and the 4 cyl rocker arms and pedestal. Set up a dial gauge on the 4 intake push rod. Rotate the engine to TDC 1 cylinder. If the dial reads thousands, your valve timing is right. If the dial reads thousands, your valve timing is retarded or your chain is streched. If the dial reads thousands, your valve timing is to far advanced. These s are for stock engines and wouldn’t work for engines with aftermarket cams. By inducing high voltage in the tube, the gas is ionized and thereby lights up.
In the case of plug wires glowing, the Corona effect can happen when atmospheric conditions are right. Thereby causing the glow.

The following instructions are for creating a MegaSquirt to Relay Board cable. It is for those who are creating their own harness. With both boxes mounted, measure the distance between them from DB connector to DB connector – this will be the length that you will cut the individual wires. If you are not using a Relay Board, allow enough length in each of your wires to reach the target component.
I removed my EGR and air pump.
My symptoms are no power to speak of below rpm. At that point turbo boost occurs and power comes up, though no where near what it should be. The engine revs smoothly but runs out of steam before rpm. I’m left to decide if the problem is the AMM or the O2 sensor. If your B FT throws oil around like mine, the throttle body can easily get crudded up and cause problems exactly as you described.
All these were fine, just a dirty throttle body caused the problem. Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver to loosen the little locking tab on the end of the lower ball-and-socket. One right-hand thread, the other left-hand. The gasket on my car lifted right off with no fuss, but if you have to scrape be sure to use a plastic or wood scraper so as not to damage the aluminum facing. Swab it out with clean rags and lots of good quality carb cleaner.
The fumes from the breather are carrying oil and combustion vapors. When this stuff attempts to past the butterfly in the mostly closed state, the pressure and hence temperature drop causes the fumes to condense out of the air stream

Dear Fellow Members, I hesitate to do this my hard drive is only 1gb , but I’m going to solicit advice from the collected Willys “brain trust” on this site. I finally got my 58 cj3b purchased three months ago home this past weekend. I know, I know I should be disbarred from the Willys club for waiting so long, but its a long story so don’t ask.
Don’t forget to tighten the locknut, and then recheck the adjustment — tightening the locknut can change the screw position slightly.
Check the serial cable and serial circuit. You need to ensure that you cable is straight-through and not a null modem cable, as well as that it doesn’t have other functional problems. For the V3 main board, the instructions are in step 26 g-h. However it does not necessarily verify that the com port speed setting baud rate is correct. If you do not pass this test, you may have a faulty solder joint in the com circuits, you need to inspect every solder joint very carefully, and touch up any that don’t look perfect.
If everything is good on the solder joints, you have not missed installing any components, and nothing is shorted or bridged, then one or more of the serial circuit components is likely damaged such as the MAX

Grounding CIS test point does not have any effect on idle.
They frequently suffer acerbic reviews by those who don’t quite understand them, and they are often removed and replaced by “progressive” centermount carburetors that lack the engineering of the originals that provide dependable service and excellent driveability once you set them up correctly. Here is what is going on with that weird left carburetor, and this will make it all crystal clear to you.
Since the beginning, VW controlled idle speed by a screw that positioned the throttle plate opening. Not much air is required to idle a VW, and they had to dump a lot of gas into the mixture to make sure a combustible mix made it all the way to the cylinders. It worked well, but it was pretty smoggy. These were the Pict 2 days where the idle speed screw was staring right at you at the top of the throttle lever.
Now, Only Push Here until you get 2, to 3, rpm.
