Re: Dash cables replacing

Finished the installation and my engine runs smoother, why? I assume that because the old wires were farmer fabricated and too long and undersized. I replaced the other underhood harness as well.

Decent quality amp meter?

Does anyone make a decent quality amp meter. Chinese needle fell of the pivots just from turning over the dash to bent the mounting tabs. I am thinking of going digital. I will try to repair it?

Dash cables replacing

I am now replacing all the wires that go from the terminal box to the dash. The old one were ready to short out and I recommend that you replace yours. (and add a fuse)!

Complete draining of coolant?

The specification says three gallons. I get only two gallons through the petcock. Does this mean that I had been low on coolant or there is still one gallon in the system?

Installing a mechanical temperature gauge?

I have all the needed parts to install said gauge, but I am wondering what to do with the excess length of lead to the probe. Yes, I know I can't cut it.

Re: Canadian Tail Light Bracket - Tudor
