    so I did get FiTech's 'update' .... tried it tonight. I feel like sending them gold stars.
    problem one, it doesn't actually clear

    problem 2, it's not square to the throttle

    problem 3, pretty sure it won't work in an optimal situation (e.g. one without an automatic)


    there has to be a better way, and it'll be me who builds it. As for FiTech, they're still in business even with all the negative publicity - good for them, poor suckers.

    oh and important Holley update. Display is dead. They're sending me a new one, a caution - apparently their warranty is only 90 days (and I probably knew that) so I should have powered it up to verify it worked.




    Downside is I now know why people keep wanting to borrow my Sniper handheld - the handhelds are on backorder




    But the good news here is twofold. First Holley is sending me a new handheld for free, but second, I can do all I need to from my laptop so it won't really slow me down.

    On Sunday before things went to hell, I got the distributor plug installed and resolved a wiring issue so the tach will work


    the next day, this important part arrived

    building a wheel for our Search and Rescue groups Stokes litter


    of course it has not moved one inch from there

    also ordered and received a solid state relay (actually 4 relays) to gain some longevity and reliability


    nope, not touched it either. Today, was feeling a lot better so got stuff done that needed to be done... but updates coming soon

    Bummer. Hope you heal up soon. Sick is no fun at all.

    I suspect he is feeling drained from all that wiring work he has been doing!

    Electricity is a mystery. My stock answer is "It's always a ground" but I'm not sure that applies here.
