Brake light was easy. If you ever unplug the MC sensor permanently, the two purple/white wires need to be jumped.

Ok. Everything seems good. Just need to wire in the alternator fuse, and wore in the starter relay and electrical is done.

a few minor things to address before first crank

Starter relay is wired in. Unfortunately it seems I do not have my 12v in my starter trigger wire. Now I need to trace that back and see what I didn’t plug in.

however, triggering the relay with the screwdriver worked fine. First starter crank tonight in almost 2 years. Obviously I didn’t fire the engine up as it’s missing a number of items still

Well, that was easy. After tracing it down, the clutch safety switch just needed an adjustment.

of course, need to do a few more things before I can try starting. At least nothing made funny noises when I turned it over.

but, it won’t start with this

Also, any where to get a new washer fluid level plug? This thing is falling apart. I wonder if two blade terminals would just fit the prongs on the tank. Somewhat hack, but non-essential


and yes, having this non-functional would keep me awake at night.

Ok wiring is done with the exception of the o2 sensor harness. Waiting for my new O2 sensors in the mail and then I’ll install it. But vehicle wiring is done, car draws 0.01 amp when sitting so looks like I did everything right.

about to bolt up the coil bracket. It’s going back in the original spot. I’ll likely pick up a spare and powdercoat it, but I have some spare ARP hardware to bolt it up.

stainless 12-point or a more subtle black 12-point?

I know I know...nitpicking bolts??

I vote for shiny! I like the slight contrast here and there..... especially with quality stuff......... like you did with your master cylinder and braided lines!

Shiny bolts it is. Installed during lunch. No pic, I’ll grab one later. Also finished mounting and wiring in the alternator fuse block.

just need to do the o2 sensor harness and done.

I have a list going now for things to do before first start. Not much to do really
