Fired up the truck on the old home made Chinese plug leads and all was good so then I decided I'd fit the Accel leads that came with the MSD and now my tacho is dancing all over where with the old leads it was steady, seems to steady up once the revs get up a bit but at idle it's crazy!

Replace the old leads one at a time with the Accel leads. When it starts acting up - you will know which is bad. Could just be a bad crimp!

Think I'll put my diagnostic rig on and see what the traces look like on the screen for each cylinder.

Double check the firing order. Make sure you didn't cross 5&7

Pretty sure FO is good, I checked double checked and then checked again just to be sure but will look again, one thing I noticed was all was good at first start but after running for 5-10 minutes the dancing tacho started again, above 2500 it's steady again then back to idle and back to its tricks again.

Finally escaped home maintenance duties to have another look at this, yes firing order all correct, ran diagnostics and found using the cylinder cut test 5 and 6 cylinders were doing very little, changed out the plug leads on 5 and 6 for known good ones will go for a road test next and see how it goes, still got the dancing tacho though :-(

Different parts of the same plant.  The plant is called coriander.  In cuisine, cilantro generally refers to the leafy parts of the plant; coriander typically relates to the seeds from the plant.  Each has its unique flavor and usage.

But, we diverge...    8)

Google, used to be your friend. Those days are gone!

Next time you make nachos, I dare you to dump a bunch of coriander seeds on it instead.   ;D
