Subject: [DML] Re: RPM Relay (John Hervey)

I've learned something new. I did not realize the RPM relay closed
with every single distributor rotation. I thought the timer looked for
more RPM's than that. 

(( Doesn't mater how slow or fast it turns. That pulse via the reluctor sends
the signal to the RPM relay which turns Fuel pump. The FP now creates the
fuel flow but several things in the fuel system is what creates the
pressure. ))

Of course the distributor turns surprisingly slowly while cranking.
Those few bursts alone might well not be enough to bring the primary
pressure up to 75 PSI. It would be enough to throw some fuel the cold
start valve's way however.

Don't you sell a kit that easily installs a pushbutton to manually
ground the cold start valve? Engineering a pushbutton from scratch
wouldn't be difficult (I've got an unused button still mounted and
wired under my knee pad from my aux air valve days), but a kit would
be even easier for new owners.

(( Yes, On the web site I sell a hot start relay so you don't have to get out
of the car to start it. Just push the button on the relay and it sends a +
voltage to the cold start valve to open. ))
