Thanks reply. Think you are talking about the green plastic spade connector directly behind alternator. I think this is tied in some way to the ignition module 14 pin connector, but just guessing.
Have changed my module to an aftermarket BWD brand. Have heard that some aftermarket modules do not support the green clip. I did hook my dwell/tach to the green clip, but it did not register anything, so think that I might have one of those that don't support the green clip.
Don't want to send out to a shop, would like to fix myself if possible to do so. The variance seems to be almost double. I don't expect the little bar indicator to be "accurate" but would think that it should do better than that. It used to.
If have to give up the idea of fixing the bar graph display, is there another connection point other than the green connector?
