    Thanks for the reply. I replaced my alternator with another of the same type - external regulator. After replacing both the alternator and regulator with parts I purchased from Summit the voltage...

    I don't have a VSS. The kit I purchased has the VSS feature disabled but I'm told by the seller that's not a significant issue. As I struggle to get this thing working I wonder if installing a VSS...

    I've attached three Excel spreadsheet files recorded while I drove the vehicle. I use a simple OBD-I scan tool made by 1320 Electronics to record the data. I drove the car for 20+ minutes and it...
  4. I'm guessing Fast355 asked about motor mounts...

    I'm guessing Fast355 asked about motor mounts because the engine could be shifting/rotating as the RPM increases/decreases. Yes, as far as I know they're fine. I had the transmission rebuilt...

    Yes, I've done that and that's what caused me to realize there is something strange in the throttle body. My vehicle is a 1966 El Camino so it doesn't have a cable but uses old-fashioned linkages...

    I drove the vehicle for the first time in several weeks. The ECM remains temporarily moved away from any moisture that might drip from the air conditioning ducts. In total I drove about 50 miles...

    My first PM to dave w didn't go through. Some kind of error message but I don't recall what it said. About the same time I posted above I sent another PM and it went through.

    Thanks

    Is dave w at Old School EFI still programming chips? If I'm successful getting the TBI on my '66 El Camino working well then I may be looking for some customization. I tried to send a PM to dave w...

    Speculating on why the engine was dying...

    I installed the ECM under the A/C & heater duct in the passenger footwell area. It's visible and easy to access. I painted the ECM box black so it...

    Prior to starting the engine today I checked the resistance of the pickup coil - 1,100 ohms. Just for grins I checked each pin to ground and moved the wires, pulled and pushed gently to see if...

    Thank you, very helpful.

    Thanks for the comments. This approach seems reasonable and since the stalling/dying is the overriding factor at this point I'll be looking into this. A couple of questions (which will demonstrate...

    I'm back at home now with access to a regular keyboard so I can type more easily. The earlier post was from a smart phone.

    So I'll elaborate on item 2) Engine stalls very frequently after ICM...

    Yes, that captures the basic problems I’ve experienced. The past six weeks are a bit of a blurr so I sometimes have difficulty recalling which problem retates to which period of time and how that...

    Okay, I know this sounds simple to many on this forum but let me restate what I think you're saying to see if I understand the process...

    My instructions indicate to set the timing with the bypass...

    Matters have gone from bad to worse. I barely made it around the block - the engine died three times! The first time it took quite a long time to fire up - probably 10 seconds - which seems like an...

    Lots of rain recently but the weather is clearing today. A test drive with the new ignition module is on the list of things to do.

    This TBI system does not include a knock sensor. The seller...

    The ECM is 1227747and was remanufactured although I'm not sure which "brand" it is. The PROM is modified by the guy who sells the kits. I don't know exactly how it's modified (which data) but the...

    An update...

    Yesterday when I installed the new ignition module I think I forgot to clear the previous code 42. OOPS!

    Regardless of what I did, or did not do, yesterday... I cleared the codes...

    Thanks for the reply. I found similar information in the form of a PDF on the gearhead-efi site. I've excerpted the information regarding code 42 and included it below. Most of the troubleshooting...

    Hello - TBI on a 1966 283 SBC

    Hello,

    I don't think of myself as a gearhead but rather a shade-tree mechanic. Seems like gearhead is a step or two above where I am.

    My wife and I have owned our 1966 Chevrolet El Camino for...
