Good! I'm glad the installation went well and quicker starting is one of the things that ought to happen. Weak spark can be the result of a bad condenser and that naturally makes starting more unpredictable. By the way, every one of these capacitors I've tested has been impressively accurate. Since you might be curious also, please see example below.
The thanks (for support of the project) should come from me, Kevin. And it truly does. I didn't make it to the metal store, but I will do that next week and will hopefully have time to make some more.
As promised, the next project will be an advanced design fuel gauge sending unit. This work has actually been going on conceptually for around 4 years (off/on) and pleasantly a discovery three days ago (Christmas miracle, I'll call it) let me see a way to make a sender for the AD trucks which will not only be sensitive, accurate and interesting but as perfectly linear as I believe would ever be possible. And at least on the drawing board it looks to be fool-proof. If this approach has ever been used on any sort of fluid level sender, I've never seen it nor heard of it. And uniquely it will be matched to the AD gas tank almost perfectly...I think.
Hi Tim, No offense taken whatsoever, but please let me clarify...The words "advanced design" appealed to me because the condenser was a forward-leaning (advanced) departure and improvement from the the only thing available today and the fuel gauge sender is likewise going to be an avant-garde departure and therefore will also qualify as an advanced design. Advanced over the old non-linear style that has been copied so crudely by folks in another country. Another product for this truck no longer made in the USA, which I will admit I enjoy trying to improve. Guess I could have used a synonym like newfangled, but the word advanced carries a certain unmistakable verve, yes? It will work also in the GMC trucks as far as I know. I owned one of those donkey's years years ago and as I recall the gas tank was the same design as the Chevrolet. At this point I need to (a) make it work and (b) write a technical document that makes a convincing case and (c) find out what the patent office thinks.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours also.
