Update… well, not really…

I haven’t done much of anything the past few weeks. The weather has been teasing me, being “almost” nice enough outside to drive her, so I’ve resisted starting any major work that would keep her in pieces for more than a day, but then the weather doesn’t get past the “almost” part and she ends up staying in the garage getting dusty. Once in a while I slide into the drivers seat and make a few “vroom vroom” noises.

The only thing that’s been done to this point was to introduce myself to the Lotus position to pull the tach out to check the wiring. It all seems good, there is 12v where I would expect, etc. and the car definitely won’t start with the tach out, so I assume that the wiring is as it should be. But it still doesn’t move. At this point I have to assume that the tach itself is bad. Any way to bench test one of these bad boys?

Once I’m sure she’s off the road for the year, the project will start in earnest.
