  1. Yesterday I had installed crosshairs in the front of the scope tube. They work much better at less than 300 yards. But they are .040 thousands on a inch in diameter. After sighting through the scope at 65 yards I noticed the size of the wire is tooooo big . Will install a smaller wire gauge crosshairs for the next trip to the range. I did try two.factory bullets for the rifle diameter. Very good results. Then I tried two paper patched bullets. That idea needs more work. But I am feeling better as now I have a somewhat controlling combination that I can just work on
  2. I really have to say , I have been frustrated with this project. What really is going on. I tested the twist rate in the 45/70. 1 in 20” twist in the barrel. It is a standard twist rate for the caliber. next thing is I have not tried a factory molded bullet, yet. I also noticed that with the small hole on both ends of the scope was causing problems. When I tried at 100’ to look through the scope, the target actually got bigger. Filling up the area I could see. I had to try a number of times to finally see what was happening. I think that has been happenin
  3. Lately I have been concerned about not being able to see the target at 100 yards or less through the scope tube.is it my macular degeneration problem. Or what. So yesterday I made crude crosshairs for both rifle scope tube what a difference crosshairs make. I can see the target at 300 yards. Or at 30’. I will experiment on smaller wires for better accuracy. I know that these prototypes are extremely crude. But it proved my thoughts. Now to improve the bullet questions.
  4. Good cheap fix. Some times it can be done. Vern
  5. I am glad you could follow all our suggestions, as it is difficult to say where to look when we are not in person. Safe Travels, Vern
  6. There is another side to this story. 1. The person not wanting to work may have had someone close to them die from covid. 2. The person may be taking care someone that there parent passed away from covid was taking care of. 3. They may have had a opportunity to meet some people as I have. Just two days ago a customer called for repairs on his Motorhome. I asked him if he was vaccinated. No he said..Nor was his wife. but he did invite me into his Motorhome to see the control panel. I said take pictures That couple really makes me mad as they did not care about
  7. Do you have a battery disconnect switch turned off. Yep that could be the problem. Vern
  8. Lower half of that box is 110 vac. Do not touch the wires in there. Do you have a meter. Vern
  9. There has to be a fuse from the batteries to the 12vdc panel. That clunk you hear sorta outside when the switch is turned on. Locate that noise. It is a relay. Probably in a metal box on the firewall under the hood. Usually on the area near the steering column. There maybe a fuse in there that is blown. If you take the cover off that box. Post a picture of it. Try to remember what you May have in that box. If there is a box. just thinking, Vern
  10. Today it is raining from just sprinkle to steady rain. Just nice for the garden. So when using the small hole in the tube scope there really needs to be bright light, or full sunlight to see. Today it does not work at all with the weather conditions. Now at longer distances it works good. Say 200 yards and beyond. That is in bright light. But the crosshairs work good today, at least in the light sprinkles. Or just being cloudy. So I will make a couple different sets of crosshairs soldered to a washer that fits in the tube scope fitting in a day or two. So I could cha
  11. Now thinking back in time if you had batteries under the steps . There could be a insulated post that those wires go to and then have another wire go to the batteries. Think, Vern
  12. I did post previous statements before reading Kirk’s post. If your lights work with engine running and not with engine off. There has to be a wire not hooked up. Or it is on a ground post. If one had a tone generator that wire could be traced to the other end. Vern
  13. The previous post I did was supposed to be sent yesterday. But now with the 12vdc panel picture we can test things. Do you have a meter. If not you need one to continue. My next suggestion is to pull a fuse from the fuse block. Then test for continuity from the fuse base on the side by the red wires. I am 99 percent sure the red wires are supposed to be 12vdc supply. Do not do that without pulling the fuse. To do this you need the meter set for a ohm reading or continuity. when you are testing voltage do not have the meter for continuity. Now you can
  14. I would find your original 12vdc fuse panel. What you say is not working is powered by that group of fuses. There should be a power feed wire on that board that you can see the wire size and color. Then go to the battery compartment. I would say that wire maybe hanging down somewhere, not hooked up. Yep found that on a job a few years back. Or that positive wire is on a negative post. Just my thinking. Vern in a T-shirt
  15. So today I removed the end of the scope tube. Them measured the inside hole diameter. 188 thousands was the diameter. So now I remember see some small wire in my repair stuff. I removed the insulation and measured it. .040 of a inch. Bent two pieces to fit in scope end fitting. Put fitting back on scope. ]https://i.imgur.com/R8YO755l.jpg Went outside and tested it at say 60’. It works good. It looked good at 200 yards looking at a power transformer on a electric pole also. Also testing brain to look through both eyes the same time when shooting. I did th
