Is that a sign that engine is missing? It is not random, but pretty much every few seconds. The engine seems to be running ok...but perhaps its losing power somewhere. I checked all wires and plug connections.

Is this as firm sign of an engin missing? Is just moving a little bit....1/8 of an inch or so.

your voltage gaugage wouldn't move with misses, just the rpm gaugage, voltage would drop if the rpms became too low and the alternator wasn't spinning fast enough, or changing voltage loads (ex. blinkers). if you have nothing on and rpms normal it shouldn't move, if it doeas than i would make sure that gaugage is correct before poking at the alternator.

We wired the bandwidth you use to your alternator, every time you make a whorish post your volts drop /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
