I know all that sounds likely but I really have checked all the wiring between the tach and the dizzy as well as anything thing that the brake pedal would interfere with. That is why this is so crazy. I WILL get to the bottom of this soon. With Easter last weekend I did not get a chance to disappear in the garage. I will take a look at the brake light circuit too which I had not done yet. Thanks guys for your input...
