Sam’s ‘64 DeVille Timing and Idle Fiasco

Started this discussion. Last reply by Clovis Jan 13, 2018. 80 Replies

So, in my infinite wisdom, I decided to tinker with my timing, distributor, and air/fuel mixture.  I took a perfectly running engine, and threw a wrench in it. Why? I found it odd that the timing…Continue

"the ground that controls the transducer voltage is thru the 1/4 screws that hold the circuit board to the comfort control panel , and through the dial.  the dial is a variable resistor going to ground, if this is open, then that's a…"

"Thank you Mark. That was very helpful, and resulted in 10V across all three wires. I will try to find the grounds for the CC system, and try to figure out which one is the culprit."

"so let's try this:  with the control panel and the transducer both plugged in, test for voltage drop.     set your multimeter to dc volts and touch the leads on the back of the circuit board (the one that you replaced in your…"

Anyone ever recalibrate their CC thermostat, and have issues with voltage to the transducer staying high? Trying to figure out why my vacuum to the servo won’t drop off when cooling, and troubleshooting with Tim’s book doesn’t go into details about what to do if you can’t obtain 6 - 6.5 volts to the transducer...that I can find.SamSee More
