Need help with tachometer wire
2 Replies

I installed a tachometer today but the green wire is supposed to go to the "tach" terminal on the coil and there's already a wire attached to that terminal.  It seems to go to a pressure switch (?)…Continue

too much rain!

So we're going to take the motorhome out on its first real trip next week.  I fired it up thinking I'd go get the propane tank filled.  Since its such a beast when cold, I sat in the driveway for a good five minutes while it warmed up and then...it quit running!  Apparently out of gas and the guage is apparently innacurate.  I put 2 gallons in and it fired right up. Great!  Now it doesn't want to go out the driveway.  Is it the tranny?  I got it backed up just enough to block the driveway and…See More

Need help with tachometer wire

I installed a tachometer today but the green wire is supposed to go to the "tach" terminal on the coil and there's already a wire attached to that terminal.  It seems to go to a pressure switch (?) or what looks like a pressure switch on top of the back of the engine.  81 Chevy 350.  Any ideas what that is?  Should I splice onto that wire with the tachometer?See More

My wife and I are up in years and wanted a motorhome for short trips, dog shows, and to have for evacuation if needed. There's been so many fires in our area that either we've evacuated or friends have come to us over the last three years. This motorhome is old but affordable and will be a good hobby for me.

Noah works pretty good!

Well, we've taken the motorhome out twice now and only a few problems.  The first trip we had a squeeling belt so our speed was limited to about 52mph.  When we arrived in Anderson, Ca the fairgrounds only had 50A power or 20A power.  The 20A didn't like us adapting to 30A so we used two regular extension cords.  One went straight to the refrigerator and the other to a power strip in the motorhome.  It worked just fine!  Now we have a 50A to 30A adapter.  Then next trip my wife took it all…

I want to make my way to CA with my boys soon. Never have myself. I40 from east to west ends in Ludlow CA. I'm sorry about the fires in your area. Have you had to simplify your belongings down to minimal just incase so you wouldn't lose everything and prepared evac get togethers inside van if needed it. Like putting back canned goods and water and all. I'm trying to learn how to conserve since water pump has heavy leak, can't figure out generator but haven't tried as much as I could yet. Waiting on that right person to show me how to do it first. Gotta fill up propane. And get some repairs done. So I can really have it right for life. But for now. I eniiy the little trips and I know how to get just enough to make it and God provides the rest.
