    Hi all,
    I have a chevy 350 inboard.
    I have 2 issues with the wiring.
    The rev counter or tachometer is making a clicking sound and the also the engine keeps running after the ignition key is turned off.

    Any suggestions on how to fix these 2 problems ?

    Does it stop if you disconnect the tachometer?

    If they start talking to you, it's an indication they're just not pleased with the general atmosphere and love they've been entitled to, in recent months. In fact, possibly pissed enough to start cussing, moaning and unusual carrying on. These will be the symptoms before death, if you're asked by the coroner.

    There are a few reasons an engine will run on. Is this a dieseling sort of thing or is your ignition just got bad wiring? It is allergy season . . .
