Hello, I have finally got my Westfield back on the road after over a year SORN. I thought I would tidy up the electrics as the last thing I did before taking it all the road was change to a Dash2 and Carbon Dashboard and the wires were all left full length to make sure it was working. There was an intermittent issue with the Rev readings disappearing but it's worked fine the last few times I've used it. When cleaning up the wiring connections I noticed the 1k ohm resistor had broken one side and guess this could have been causing a fault? the 1k Ohm Pull resistor was part of the Smiths Gauge wiring from the original gauge I had installed. The wiring is as below (I have a Shift-I shift light unit installed as well): The resistor was wired from the Green Westfield Tacho Feed (2 Green wires) into the signal feed connection when all was working correctly I have tried this on the re-wiring and I'm not getting any reading at all now? Can anyone enlighten me as to how this should be wired? On a side note, I had it working yesterday without the green wires or resistor wires connected at all but I think I touched them against the signal feed wire to test if this was needed so this might have "jump started it"? this worked for just the dash2, not the shift-i ? As mentioned, this was all working ok prior to me messing with the wiring 🤦♂️
