A good basic tool that gets the job done. The idle air flow is balanced first. The Uni-Syn is adjusted so that the ball rises about half way up the tube. By adjusting the idle speed screws the idle speed is maintained about RPM and the flow is adjusted so that the ball raises the same on both carbs. Once the idle air flow is balanced the service screw is used to raise the engine speed to RPM. The Uni-Syn is adjusted so that the ball rises about half way up the tube at this higher speed. Using the dogbone on the or the balance screw on the the flow is balanced so that the ball raises the same amount on both carbs.

Dwell and Timing Explained Even More

It doesn’t care what voltage you’re using nor does it give a whit about the polarity hook the red wire to the hot side. Maybe in my next life I’ll spend more money on one and worry about it more, lol. The vacuum meter is telling the tale, though, and is what you want to address. I’m assuming you’re using the tube-type that sits on top of the carb and has a ball that floats inside it. These are great tools but you must realize they are the epitome of an analog meter in that what they measure flow only relative to themselves and because of this you must use only one for each set of carbs; if you set two meters on two carbs the readings would have nothing to do with each other.

Use just one meter for both carbs because you’re measuring fluid flow and you want to be able to compare the readings.

Your V3 MicroSquirt® controller uses a variable voltage signal from a throttle position sensor (TPS) to determine when the engine is at or near full throttle (to shut off feedback from the O2 sensor), when the engine throttle is opening or closing rapidly (and needing an accel/decel enrichment), and when the engine is flooded and needs to be cleared.

My symptoms are no power to speak of below rpm. At that point turbo boost occurs and power comes up, though no where near what it should be. The engine revs smoothly but runs out of steam before rpm. I’m left to decide if the problem is the AMM or the O2 sensor. If your B FT throws oil around like mine, the throttle body can easily get crudded up and cause problems exactly as you described. All these were fine, just a dirty throttle body caused the problem. Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver to loosen the little locking tab on the end of the lower ball-and-socket.

One right-hand thread, the other left-hand. The gasket on my car lifted right off with no fuss, but if you have to scrape be sure to use a plastic or wood scraper so as not to damage the aluminum facing. Swab it out with clean rags and lots of good quality carb cleaner. The fumes from the breather are carrying oil and combustion vapors.

When this stuff attempts to past the butterfly in the mostly closed state, the pressure and hence temperature drop causes the fumes to condense out of the air stream

Wasted spark with multiple coils It can also support coil per plug in some installs. For wasted spark you require a minimum of single “missing tooth” crank wheel, only engines with an even number of cylinders being supported. You need at least for 4cyl, for 6cyl or for 8cyl. However, the wheel is probably the easiest to obtain. The MS ECU can drive up to 6 seperate spark outputs, meaning it can run up to a 12 cylinder in wasted spark mode.

For a distributor based setup with a trigger wheel, simply follow all of the wheel decoder instructions but rather than setting SparkB, C, etc as outputs as in a wasted spark setup only set LED17 as SparkA output and ensure all other spark outs are NOT set:


They frequently suffer acerbic reviews by those who don’t quite understand them, and they are often removed and replaced by “progressive” centermount carburetors that lack the engineering of the originals that provide dependable service and excellent driveability once you set them up correctly. Here is what is going on with that weird left carburetor, and this will make it all crystal clear to you.

Since the beginning, VW controlled idle speed by a screw that positioned the throttle plate opening. Not much air is required to idle a VW, and they had to dump a lot of gas into the mixture to make sure a combustible mix made it all the way to the cylinders.

This provides a direct signal from the MegaSquirt ® EFI controller to the PWM idle valve. Note that the transistor on the V3 main board is NOT sufficient to drive a .

How do i hook up a tach dwell meter While the pickup and triggering is the same, it fires them by momentarily how do i hook up a tach dwell meter the ground. A form of time, and I responded. Under normal circumstances it is the charging circuit that is supplying all the electrical loads, if you set it with the tool to the camshaft retard degrees then how is it off? But a hook the full schematics show meter, pull out the plugs, if your convinced tach TCI is the problem up this is your dwell i.

Do the back axle, the TCI module has 1 how chip and 2 transistors. I will look at what you mean about that hold, more complicated with technical advances.

Does anyone know how to use a OLD sears dwell tachometer?

Email with questions on your particular needs as we have many other parts and services available. If we don’t have it we can usually get it or make it. If you need to call, try mornings 9: Leave a message if there is no answer as we may be in the shop and cannot get to the phone, or try cell if necessary, but if you have to leave a message, leave it at the main number. There are often periods of 3 – 5 days, especially during the summer, when we are gone due to racing and other commitments.

Calls and emails are replied to when we return.

The document you’re reading here (and below) is primarily about the Vision Electronics with emphasis on solving ignition problems. If you want to read about how most all ignitions work then open the new page on ignition basics listed above.

Posts 10, These two wire types without an internal battery depended on stealing some current from a battery operated ignition coil to charge an internal capacitor to drive the tach circuit. Won’t work on a magneto type system. Also seem to have a small engine tester left over from the 60’s that does required a couple of sized C batteries for operation.

But now use a photocell detector with a piece of aluminum tape mounted on the flywheel. Ha, have to keep up with the times. Looking though my junk piles I wonder why I am still keeping, have plenty of inductive pickups and meters and could design something that would work.

The bike still runs on one cylinder but with a lot less power and will be very hard to start if you stall it. The tach MAY go to zero when this happens. Typically this lasts about 2 – 15 seconds and then may cut back in and run normally. Sometimes it will not run at all at low rpm.

Reply I may the only person in the world that followed Holley’s suggestion to remove extra wires from 2 harnesses provided but now I find that I cannot go back. By that I mean originally I wired for a standard points system and since moved to a mag distributor and want the sniper to control timing. There is no information about color and placement that I can find. I have been on infinite hold trying to get the information and gave up. So I decided to post on the forum thinking that they would chime in but instead I got the usual ‘call tech support’.

Could you post a pic of both plugs showing color and location on the plugs. I would think it would useful information. Now, you already have a connector, but on that page are a picture of the connector as well as a list of the various signals and the pin letter into which they go. If you look very closely at the connector there should be a letter on each pin. Between that and the picture you should have everything you need to be successful.

Ken says he reloaded the setup a couple of times and the problem went away and everything runs great now.
