When I use my timing light/ tac to set the idle drop, I put the pickup on #1 for that side and #2 for the other. The book says you can hook up to the wireing somewhere, a place I still havent found. Does anyone know a better way of hooking up the tac other than changing sides? Since it runs 2 coils I get a lower rpm reading than the 1000rpm's. Also I saw a psot by littlebeaver about making your own timing site glass. I can't find that post. Could someone direct me to it? As for the problems I had with the seller with this engine. I got a call last week and he has a 85A engine for me. All I have to do is pay the shipping. Anyone have a good cheap carrier? He moved and lost the one he had. Now I will have the factory 84 engine and 86 plus the 85 he is sending me. This guy is bending over backwards now to make me happy. I guess I was wrong about him Though I am having a problem with another guy I bought come carbs off of. I paid for them then 4 days later he sends me a message that he was wrong on the shipping cost and wants me to send him more money.. EBay is going after him now One way or another I'm gona get the old girl back to pride and glory The stroke may have slowed me down, but it's not going to stop me. I feel the best when I'm out on the road riding with my biker wife
I hope all of you are free from any insidents while enjoying your rides and your health never puts you down from riding!!!
