The first problem is for some reason the ET started pegging the usage
meter in the upper speed ranges.  All is fine in the first couple
ranges.  If I remember correctly it was some sort of resistor bank or
something like that that you guy/gals said was most likely the problem.
So where do I start, What do I check, where is it located, and how do I
test it, and replace it.  Where do I get the replacement parts. Etc

Most likely are the 2 resistors - the flat silver colored strips ahead of the battery charger, mounted to the bracket the timer is on. When they fail, you can usually see the break. The posts they are mounted to may be loose. The switches are the last micro-switches on the throttle control, but less likely to be the problem.

The second problem is that my charger does not seam to be working.  It
dose hum, and it defiantly draws current as the cord get warm, but there
is no voltage on the output side.  Once again,  What to I check, where
is it, how to I test it, and where do I get replacement parts.

Make sure the disconnect switch is closed, and the wires from the charger are tight. Often it is the diodes (pressed into the al. plate on the charger). Unsolder the wires on the diodes, then check each diode each direction with the ohm-meter. Should be very different readings with meter leads reversed.
