Good eye! It's a 74 500 H1 triple that Pepsled gave me.  He saw a pic on the wall of my shop with me back in the day astride my 74 Green h1. He says, hey I got one of those, it's even green too, ya want it? Next week he shows up with it in his pickup! I need to restore it, buts is all there.

    Hey Phil,

    What is the correct amperage fuse are you using in those tachs? Any ideas what is correct?

    I will have to look when I get home. I'm not sure what the correct fuse is off hand.

    Looked at the three regulated triple tachs that I have.  One has a 20 amp fuse, the other two are stamped BUSS ACC 1/4 AMP  250 volt.  Unfortunately, I do not know which is the correct factory fuse.

    Hey Phil -
    Beautiful shop! You are the envy of many.
    I have a 73 Starfire project going as well.
    How did you get the tunnels and bulkheads
    so clean from paint.
    Were they chemically stripped? Thanks

    This is my delemma too, I smoked a triple tach cause the fuse never blew >:( When I get the sled out of the corner I'll check the size and tell you what NOT to use.

    Hey Mike,  I chemically strip the chassis and then gently sand blast the areas I can't get at with the stripper.  Then DA sander with 220 followed by scotch brite pads.  I put a new tunnel on the 440 so that explains how clean that one is.

    Hey Dale, my original 440 tunnel was bobbed (shortened) as were so many of the Starfires back in the day.  I bought a new repro tunnel from Jay Bouley (Bouley Built) a couple years ago and that is what you see here.  Not sure if he is still making sled stuff or not.  A number of guys are making them now from what I hear.

    If you have centurion ignition in your triple you need to wire in a voltage regulator.
