Hi Folks,

I know this topic has been beaten to death; that said I have never found a straight answer related to my specific vehicle/starter. When I replaced the starter, I simply followed the wiring exactly as it was on the old starter as that starter worked flawlessly for years.

The configuration is quite simple - i'm not convinced it is correct though. As a side note, I now have a jumpy tach that did not exist before. Anyway, my wiring is as follows - the positive battery cable to the large solenoid bolt, and all of the other smaller wires to the small solenoid bolt.

Starts immediately, runs great at startup and drops down to closed loop as it should. When at idle and driven conservatively, the tach is fine. That said, going into hi revs either accelerating or downshifting the tach acts up (above say 2500 rpm) but settles back down at lower rpms. Also when the tach acts up, the shift light (muncie 4 speed) flashes on and off as if something is shorted. I already ordered a tach filter from Rodney Dickman but that is a crapshoot move on my part. Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, battery cables and all sensors are new. Have also installed a known good cluster.

Your input is appreciated.

Well, simple resolve. On a whim I put a new positive battery cable on; despite that the one on the car looked perfect. I guess looks can be deceiving when wiring is involved. Tach and entire gauge cluster works great, car runs new -

Thanks for your input.

That's true, plus 30 years is involved.
