Re: rebuilt carbs running lean,carb sync is good, need advce

55 is fine. Don't need to go that far either just a few miles. Check for leaks as there is a chance you have one. What kind of air filter are you using?

Re: rebuilt carbs running lean,carb sync is good, need advce

Need a little more detail. How fast were you going for those 30 miles? What throttle position did you spend most of your time. Does your bike have a stock airbox and filter? You could still have leaks. I usually spray the intake rubbers with short burst of starting fluid to see if the idle picks up....

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

Thanks Big V another one to add to the knowledge base. Not sure what you mean about the bad tasting carpet not trying to rub your nose in it if that's what you mean. If this thing runs it will be the event of the year. It's not every day a 40 year bike gets a new ignition system.

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

A little update I found out why I was only getting spark on 1 of the pickups. The problem was that I was tapping into the yellow/red wire off the starter solenoid. I am not sure why, but the voltage was dropping to much to trigger the HEI. By moving 12+ to the left side of the starter solenoid I was...

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

The primary side of the GM coils will be near zero. Actually somewhere around .4 to .6 ohms. If you are getting spark from that test, then put everything back the way it should be, then swap the pickup wires at the G teminals. If the problem moves, then one pickup is bad or has a spec different fro...

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

Thanks Lou,

This little test seems to work ok. I am not sure if earlier testing where the spark plugs may have slide off the top of the engine damaged my coils or not. My primary side of both coils is measuring near zero.

Yeah, no kidding and the saga is not over! Looks like I am only getting spark on 2 cylinders. Not sure what I did wrong so I started checking stuff and got no where.

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

Thanks Volker! I am so excited to see this thing make spark that I can hardly believe it! I must confess I had my doubts that it would do anything especially after so many attempts by School_Da_Geek. So for it to just make a spark I am thrilled! I will report back with findings. The cowboy in the su...

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

Still trying to battle my wiring mess, but i am hopeful it will run the way it's supposed to. I'll be working on it over the next couple days and report back. Do you think I can use a timing light when turning over with the starter to check timing?

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

Just when you thought it was never going to happen here it is a 1976 CB750 with CB650 reflectors and rotor triggering GM HEI modules and coils.

Re: GM HEI: Cheap and Extremely Effective Ignition Upgrade

Did you install some type of electronic pulsing system to replace the points? No just using the cb650 rectors and the backing plate I had fabed up page 6 of what is becoming a War and Peace of ignition threads http://hondacb650.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3142&start=75. For the plug wires, I ju...
