    Is there an adjustment inside or outside to adjust the rod that enguages the power to the swithes? I've had ignition problems for sometime now and I'm getting frustrated as this is constantly cutting off! I have power to every accessory and vital componant in the rig but it just seems to shut down the ignition when it feels like it. Any susgestions or clue would be helpful please /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif!

    could be the HEI control module

    does engine shut off if you barely twitch the ignition lock switch ?

    I've already replaced all that except for pick-up coil. I have a new Proform HEI sitting on the floor here, I'll install it as soon as my other half is better from surgery to where she can function on her own.

    Yes, It's all tight no slop in the tilt.

    Have you replaced the ign switch itself? Not the lock cylinder but the ign switch on the column??? Connects to lock cyl via rod....
