Re: Fuel Tank Sending Unit

Hi, I just took the tank out to access the differential, and there is a ground wire that connects to one of the bolts that holds the tank straps. The ground for the fuel pump was also attached there (at least, on my 2400 coupé). The spider is likely different, but this could be a starting point for ...

Re: Problem with cam timing chain 1967 2000 Dino coupe

You can get a long bar and leverage back the tensioner (once it's loosened), then tighten it up in the compact position. Now, you can get a pair of strong lock pliers around the camshaft and rotate it into position and hold it there. Once all is good, release the tensioner. If you havent done the co...

Re: How do I know if engine mounts need replacing?

Hi, you can jack up one side of the engine and remove the engine mount without undoing the headers. Depending on your exhaust, you many need to loosen the 3 in 1 to get some wiggle room. Then you can check what shape it's in and replace if necessary. Not sure that the replacements available are real...

Re: Tacho removal 2.4 Coupe

Mine was giving all sorts of problems and it turns out I was running the wrong coil. What ignition set-up do you have? The tacho is driven by 12V and a pulsed signal from the dinoplex. You can reproduce it with a function generator, or even a mechanical switch driven by your drill (eg the points dis...
