Tachometer running high and jumping

Post by Dino Man » Mon Nov 11, 2013 3:06 pm

My 80 Spider 2000 was not getting a spark and knowing that much of my ignition system was old I purchased a new coil, ignition module, pick up assembly, button, cap, and new spark plugs. After assembly my car is getting spark and runs but seems to be missing and the tachometer is crazy.
So I am thinking that I have something put together incorrectly, although I checked the wiring on my coil and it looks ok. The Tec is running very high and is jumping and when I am running at faster speed I noticed a miss fire or what feels like a miss fire. Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks

Have you checked the voltage? Maybe a regulator is failing.
