    Front is good gar. I had to fix the connections to start with as the last owner wasn't very good with a soldering iron. It's only when she's idle absolutely fine when revved. I think it may be underpowered.

    No turning up the idle won't make a difference as it would still flicker. It needs a capacitor or voltage regulator. Just don't know what size and wondered if anyone on here had a half tidy answer (like hell) head but

    If you don't get a sensible answer to a question in a couple of days it usually means no one knows and you get the above replies. Laughing

    On a more serious note try wiring one of these in
