  3. I've got a spare ridge ring, unfortunately I'm out to sea for the next three or so weeks
  4. Working on finishing up my speedhut gauge cluster upgrade and need some data to program the gauge idiot lights. Any recommendations for high/low/warning light points for the Voltmeter, Oil Pressure, and Water Temp? Based on a picture provided of the temp gauge, looks like I should program Low High Volt Oil Pressure Water Temp 67c 115c

    Short update - gauge testing

    Home for about a week before another month long underway. Still workjng on the heater core update (need to figure out why my defrost flaps are hard to open/close). So I bought a 5/8 brace barbed splice and bypassed the heater core so I could finally get around to starting the car up to test the gauges. After some quick programming of the tach (and verifying measurements against my 123app) everything was looking good. Oil pressure was high to start but decreased over time as the engine got warm. Every time I pressed the throttle pressure went up and down accordingly. Water temp rose nicely as well. Still need to program the gas gauge but that can wait. Somehow i lost my blinkers, so more troubleshooting is needed, but it was good to hear the engine fire up again. 023F5F03-F3FA-4A09-833A-B3D6816D171F.MOV

    Speaking of- does anyone know high and low/warning values for water temp, oil pressure, and battery?

    Bypassed the heater core so I could finally get around to verifying gauge operation. Still need to program the fuel gauge and figure out why I do not have blinkers but so fare everything looks awesome. http://

    Aftermarket tachometer recommendations

    I've got a tach I can part with if you still need one. Actually have a full set of gauges to get rid of

    Finally got back into the garage after six weeks at sea: Was able to solder up the new light indicator to the left turn signal wire, solder the constant hot line to the gauge panel, and mostly finish putting together the heater core after its rebuild. Looks like I’ll be out to sea for another four weeks here shortly, so sadly not much is going to get done any time soon. I’m thinking I’ll bypass the heater core so I can start the car up and figure out what else I need to fix
  11. Any idea if the book will come in a hardcover version?

    Progress before the break

    Since I’ll be out to sea for more or less the next 10 weeks, I took the opportunity this weekend to knock out a bunch of projects on the interior: cleaned up the wiring under the dash ran the new sensors sensors for the gauges more or less got the gauge wiring done wired up the power and windows to the new switch panel cleaned up under the back bench cleaned up and required a bit of the aux fuse panel trimmed the trunk boards so they fit flush fit the new rear light lenses to replace the cracked ones took out the passenger seat and replaced all of the bolts to the frame and bolts to the car finished up the heater box rebuild (see previous post) reconnected the amp and verified wires in place when I get back I still need to do a bunch: source a constant hot for part of the gauges repair and recover the dash run wires for AFR figure our why I no longer have switched power from the aux fuse box rewire the left turn signal- worked briefly but no longer shows on the speedo gauge rebuild the heater valve and refit the heater box refit the speaker pods and install speakers install rear speakers in shelf source and install third brake light finish center console fire our wiring for brake warning idiot light at some point I’ll recover and refit the interior panels, get some seat covers for the recaros, and install the new rear seats

    Full heater box rebuild

    Wrapped up a full heater box rebuild to include making new bowden cables. Core was pressure tested and came back great. Replaced all the seals, installed a new plastic fan, fixed all the broken plastic, added a new valve bracket, re-riveted all the holes. Got to the end and had the square bit of the valve break off when I went to attach the new valve arm. Son. Of. A. B...
