  1. The nut behind the steering wheel? Tee hee. Thanks for the kind words.
  2. Ummm...those mud flaps don't look particularly effective for some reason.
  3. No he did not. Laggard, but I expected he'd not send one.
  4. I can also refurbish the underhood headlight harness for much less than the reproductions. The alternator and engine gauge feed (oil, water, coil) are better bought as reproductions.
  5. I'm moving out near Casino del Sol mid-May (all in town...sort of...). Actually, Panama City Beach is the Redneck Riviera. Never heard of "Sam and Shines"... Don't send anything until the end of may when my move across town is over and done with.
  6. OMG! I hope you tightened that nut on the accessory post and used a second nut as a jamb nut! You should be reported to the wiring Gods as a derelict. *G*
  7. You're more than welcome. It is often that another set of eyes/mindset can troubleshoot things better than the one experiencing the problem. The main reason why I am on this and other forums, as well as my wiring refurbishment business, is that I really enjoy trouble-shooting from a distance. Having a detached perspective (e.g. a dirty mind laying in the gutter) and helping people out gives me great satisfaction out of life. That, and a good brand of whiskey...
  8. What about me? I'm putting your name in my little black book...
  9. Bottom row (with pins almost in a straight line), front facing you: right: black/blue, center: green/yellow, left: yellow (horn) and green/red Center row: right: red/orange left: black/yellow Top row: left: black/orange (main power), center: brown and sometimes blue/red, right: blue/red
  10. Oh man...you guys are killing me! Since when was it not custom to take a thread off the rails?
  11. The dash voltage regulator has nothing to do with the dash lamps, only the power for the gas, oil, and water temperature. LED's melted? How strange...I'd examine the sockets very carefully. Be careful replacing the circuit board, as it will be easy to inadvertently ground the gauges against the metal dash cluster housing because you can't see underneath the insulating pads and the circuit card when you tighten the nuts on the gauge posts.
  12. If you put the top down (is down in the stowed position or in the upright position so it covers the interior? I've never figured out what top up or top down represents), your headroom becomes almost unlimited.

    I blame RPM

    What actually happened is that the website starter solenoid welded itself shut and fried the points feeding the 'puter memory chips.

    Who else would overload the server? Hmmmm?
