Today, 10:39 AM

I redid a lot of the wiring in the car because I wanted to make sure I wasn't gonna have a fire hazard and was really scared about my work prior. Now I've got it all buttoned up and done correctly :)

I sourced a smaller coil mount so I can use that. I start the car up every morning and thankfully, the radiator doesn't leak but I still haven't gotten under the car to check that rear main seal. My diff is also leaking but I don't suspect the bolt.
As far as the clutch adjustment, I'll be getting to that this weekend. Unfortunately, the spal fan is still a bit louder than I'd like but engine is cool so I can't object.

I'm gonna adjust the brakes a bit more because I'd like more of a response because they only work after being just about fully applied.

All lights etc work EXCEPT hazards because I'm not sure how to wire it from ez wiring harness. It's a bitch.

I drove it just a little bit and I'm running no choke because one, I'm in California and two, I can't find one that'll work well with the choke being a front-car pull type.

As far as idle, I don't mess with the carbs too much but just idle adjustment. I think I need to move my distributor a bit? Which way lowers idle? And I have a timing gun. Anyone know what it's supposed to be at?

I almost forgot! Here's some pics of my babies!
This is somewhat how my choke was setup but I took it off and bent that piece in the process. Cheap shit.

Love your Goon man. Gotta reread from the beginning. Cool mirrors.

Thanks man! Seriously appreciate that. Learned a ton on this car and hope to keep learning and perfecting.

Which harness did you buy?

The ez wiring kit. Everything works great and is incredibly easy besides the hazard button lol.

Get a wiring diagram of the car and copy the hazard circuit.

If you can't read a diagram, you can't get it right on the car. Copy down the entire hazard circuit and only the hazard circuit on to another piece of paper. Start at battery, go through fuses, etc. Draw everything until you get to ground.

Now you are ready to wire it.

The thing is that I've got an aftermarket wiring harness from ez wiring. I initially had them working and went through one wire at a time on the car because everything from the day running lights to inside lights had been working. As far as a diagram, the harness is for gms so it was no help. I'm going to attach my brake light wires and see if what I read was correct. Otherwise, I don't see why it wouldn't work if the wire is getting power and I plug it to a switch with a ground.
