Re: OER, Pertronix lll and M&H
Gtogeoff, I went off to U Do it up here and purchased all the components that Pertronix says I may need. Basically they say install a 10k 1/2 watt resister and if that doesn't do it then try 15k and 20k. If all those don't work then install a .01 1000v mf capacitor. None worked but I did discover something interesting though. if I turn on my running lights and with any resister in line the tach will go to 500 rpm and sit there regardless of engine rpm but that's a start. I also have another issue with a intermittent buzzing regulator so I checked my voltage at the battery with my Fluke as follows. Engine off=12.6v, engine idling 14.4v but then it will buzz and shoot up into the 16.5v range for a few second and come back down. As mentioned earlier I have replaced almost everything through this restoration although the term resurrection might be more fitting. The M&H harness looks and to date has tested perfectly. During the restore i changed the tach, gauge cluster, entire stem to stern wiring harnesses, horn relay, voltage regulator and the alternator. I know never change that many things at a time but in my case I had no choice.. I used my dvm checking resistance from the gauge cluster to chassis, chassis to frame, frame to motor and the radiator support. All came in good... Its acting like a ground issue but I installed all new grounds cleaning the surface completely. I should mention I am only using the two engine compartment harnesses and the main cluster harness connected to everything minus the intermediate harness, AC harness and steering column harness. To make things worse I do have a decent understanding of electronics being in computers throughout the years. I will stay on it but its making me crazy
