    which doesn't yet solve the problem - but it's a step

    when I do my next BBC, I'm going to either embed the magnets in the balancer or run a reluctor wheel like they did on the 8.1 and 632 motors....

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

        • 30 minutes on hold with Holley.... gave up.

          also quite sick - so updates are not going to be coming often

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

                        • 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

                          • 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.

                              • 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.
