Today I installed an Autometer brand tachometer. It very simple to hookup since the tach signal is taken from the HEI distributor connector. The interesting thing was finding a place to mount the tach without it obstructing to much of swept dash instrument cluster.
Everything worked out as planned during the installation. I did find a negative regarding the placement of the tach. When I use the left blinker I can barely see the indicator so I will inadvertently leave it on since the canceling mechanism is not functioning properly.
It’s the Labor day weekend and the expected temperatures going to be around 110.
I’ve noticed a “thunk” sound when changing direction front to reverse or visa versa. It doesn’t matter what the starting drive is.
This will happen when the wheels are turned all the way into one direction. I need to investigate.
This is a place holder posting.
Since owning the Elco the driver side seat has always leaned back further then the passengers. Really didn’t bother me much until wifey sat on it and is sitting way ahead of me and it blocks part of my view to the right window.
I checked out the usual possibilities and it turns out it is a cracked frame. I just went through this with my 2000 Chevy 3500 dually.
I ordered a hog ring plier and a bunch of hog rings. I plan on removing the driver seat cover and determine what type of work will be needed for seat repair.
Today was the day for the much anticipated eclipse that supposed to sweep the United States.
We brought both oldies out tonight.
Starting it all over again. Ugh!
Thought about cleaning up the original wiper fluid reservoir. Nah, I could get a reproduction that is a drop in fit and did.
I even replaced the cap. One thing I noticed the hose was so old and a different diameter then the cap setup I have now. I’ll have to replace if I ever decide to get it all working again.
Hot ride on the way home. It hovered from 104-106 all the home. That sucked.
We took the Goldwing for a ride this morning along the River Road and ended up in West Sacramento then off to old Sacramento where this photo was taken.
