I found a complete actuator/motor assy .from Floyds in MI for a reasonable price. Considering JD has discontinued this part I guess it's a great price! Now the search continues for a motor so I can have a spare.

Tractor on.....................

Home made HIE ignition tach problem

I'm going way out on a limb here, hope someone can help. I built a new ignition system for my Cushman using a hall effect switch and a GM HEI module and dual tower coil. I have less invested than a new set of points and condenser. It works great. Runs smoother and idles better. The problem is the tach no longer works. The system is a lost spark system meaning that both plugs fire every stroke. The tach is a Thomas G Faria that only has two wires. With the original wiring one wire went to coil + the other to coil -. With the new ignition that hookup kills the engine. I can't find any info about that tach, the company was bought out by another and they don't seem to make anything close to that now. I thought I might be able to make some sort of induction pickup but, my first try didn't do anything. I could probably put another hall effect switch in the disto but I was hoping for something easier.

There are a number of articles on the web about using that module but, none seem to have a tach. I would like to keep the tach I have because it is original and says Cushman on it. The original GMs that used that module had a tach terminal on the disto but, I can't seem to find info on how that was wired internally. Any of you electronics guys have any clues?

Thanks Dick

I was flagged down by a man in the 55+ park we mow in. He was asking if we'd seen anyone in his yard in the last week or two.

I think he has an enemy with a whole lot of Roundup on hand.



someone also mowed it down to nearly ground level. Double dose of lawn death!
