    8 "junior" size? timer terminals, 8 lengths of decent wire and a decent big ring terminal (or a stack of smaller ones) and you'd have basically what Jack thinks may help.

    EDIT: 'Cept you have 6cyl... so 12 earths, terminals and wires

    Jack is very, very methodical - I bet he would do this first, just to rule it out if nothing else, then move onto the next stage of diagnosis, if it didn't work/help.

    I'm not saying Jack isn't smart.

    I'm saying he contradicdicted himself after belittiling me for putting my grounds to the factory spot, and telling me how dumb I was while directing me to a post that pretty much didn't say shit, and then belitting me more for not knowing what he was talking about. Then realizing that he screwed up, and then posting usable information, then belittiling me more for not posting pictures.

    Now he posts some pictures of grounding to the exhaust manifolds. That is just as stoopid as when I grounded to the FACTORY SPOT.

    I'm sorry..

    I'm in the defensive mode now.

    I'll switch to open conversation.

    On the ground situation, earlier in this thead, Jack has eluded to how he grounds things now, the exhaust manifolds are not it.

    I'm not going to pull a "JACK" here, but a Catahula here.

    Read from the beginning on why anything but a sheilded , back to the battery, nothing but Jackass approved isn't the best.

    because it is.

    It didn't solve my problem, but...I have another problem that I haven't figured out.

    and I'm going out of town for a week, so when I get back....

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
