I am a little rich at idle right now, reading 10.8 - 11.3. At cruising speed I am reading around 13. Pulling hills or with heavy acceleration, I run about 14.3. 14.7 is the theoretical ideal, however all the recommendations I read said to run in the 12 -13 range. This is to account for the fact that individual cylinders may run more lean than the combined sample seen by the oxygen sensor. The LED indicator on my gauge switches from green to yellow at 13.0. I set mine up to run slightly lean at cruise, hopefully improving my mileage. I guess you will want to set yours up, at least initially, to maximize your chances of passing emissions testing.

Mine didn't work either, that's why it was tossed long ago. However, every time I drive the MH, I am wishing I had a clock (digital preferably) within view somewhere. Trying to see the time on the iPhone is almost impossible and dangerous!

Those clocks with the blue dashes are Teleflex clocks.

It's interesting that none of the clocks seem to have survived!

Dean, you could always remount that laptop or tablet to your steering wheel if you need to see the time

Tony, at least you can take heart in knowing that your dash is probably one of a kind

Brad you made my day! That is exactly what I was saying to myself as I pressed the "post" button earlier. I was thinking of all the "controversy" my iPad steering wheel mount created! Made me laugh. People can be so seriously silly sometimes. However I do find that mounting three iPads, one iPhone and one iPod directly to the dash just seem to work better!

I really liked your iPad mount but I'm holding out until you develop one that doesn't spin with the steering wheel. I figure once you get that design down it would be worth using...

HEY, HEY, my clock works! although the face needs some toothpaste headlamp treatment. The pesky thing drained the battery the first summer I had it.

At least with the dashboard I can say in all truthfulness; it wasn't me that did it.

Sorry Chiefair for the epic thread hijack....from motor swap to clocks.

Cheers
Tony

Don't apologize to me, these flights into random topics are part of what causes me to compulsively check this site several times a day.
