Rev Counter not Working

Postby D366Y » Sun Nov 05, 2017 2:19 pm

Hi guys, mentioned last week about the rev counter not working since I changed the carb over fro a 34 IHC to a 32/36 and everyone said that there was a spare wire somewhere that goes straight to the coil, but as per my pictures below I can't find any spare/loose wires at all?

Help please! Thanks

The only spare wire is the fuel return valve as Paul has previously mentioned, otherwise the only other wire knocking around goes straight to the condenser...?

Cheers

Yours looks as someone has modified it a bit. Try just connecting the two green wire that come out of the wiring loom under the coil directly to the -ve terminal and the black with a yellow (or white, not sure, can tell on mine) tracer to the +ve.

Down on the wiring loom and about two inches (50mm for you young'ens) in front of where the two greens and the black/yellow emerged you will see another single green wire. Connect your red and later green wire from the condenser to this.

Mine is original and not been f****D about with.

Like I said Danny, if you can't sort it I will have a look at it for you.

Paul.
