Phasing, My Condensed Version For Lucas

Posted on: Tuesday October 10, 2017

cwIMG 1600 1 cylinder set to TDC

I learned about ohms, how the gauge reacte...

I still have changes to make, test was almost perfect, but not quite. This image is the gas gauge positions as the tank fills up. Almost to the 4/4. I have a few things to learn yet, how these should work (another adventure). My 7.5 Gal tank took on almost 9 gallons? No, the station wasn't holding back, the book was posting Im...
