good idea jomor thanks!
dont think i could've done that in this case though cause it was a 3 core wire and i wouldnt know what wire i would be touching/shorting wink
i just pulled the connector out, inserted a wire in the signal pin(a telephone wire actually) and plugged the connecter in carefully.
i only have one problem now
i have 2 circuits, wired on 2 different bread boards (cause one of them is pretty big).
one of them shows a digital readout of the current RPM and the other shows a bar-graph. now, the bargraph works fine, but the readout only goes up to about 4,000 rpm then falls to 0.
dunno why, i will have to check it
signal must be ok though cause it works on the bar graph circuit.
i only got it to 5,000rpm. it started to sound a bit funny (and strained) at 4.500 and i didnt want to blow it
on the manual it says 45bhp@5,000rpm with the red line @ 6,000. i wouldnt want to rev it up to 6k though! eek!
