After a month of being idle, I drove the 67B eight miles to town a few days
ago. I took it to the car wash and on the way home it started missing and
when making a corner and downshifting to second it died. I noticed as it was
missing (and dying) the tach was jumping all over the place. I started it up
again and it missed and died. Restarted and drove the 4 miles home without
incident. I thought something had just gotten wet while washing (sometimes
the tach and turn signals die for a while after taking it to the car wash;
I've  found that the problem seems to be a wet connection by the firewall on
the green wires but it usually dries out and then is fine).  So the car sat
for two days and I started it up and was doing the same thing; missing and
Any suggestions on where to start looking? I didn't notice the generator
light coming on while the tach was doing it's tricks.
