#1482032 1972 510 electrical problem

Posted by shacks510 on 22 April 2017 - 01:10 AM

Replace all the fuses to rule them out. Buy a box at harbor freight for $8 and you'll be set for the life of the car. Don't chase stuff around for hours to later find it was only a fuse. Fusible links blown? Grounds? The fat solid white wire is constant power into the box, and the ignition switch sends power to the box as well when it's in certain positions. Photobucket is conveniently not working or I'd post a wiring diagram. Just search for it.

According to the Super Street Facebook page, it's $5 to drive in...

I am near Woodland Hills. If you have tools and they are ready to bolt in, I am happy to help.

I like the rounded tabs under the flare. Much cleaner than sawzall then install.

I would like to make it clear to everyone... I only assisted with pulling the motor. Resealing was not done under my supervision, but I did say to use RTV on the headgasket between the head/timing cover.

That's super cool. I want to buy an entire roll just to have it.

Got my new windshield installed after sitting in my bedroom for 4 months. It's so nice to be able to see where I'm going. Old one was pitted and hazy between the layers of glass. Couldn't see shit when light hit it straight on. Cost $50 and took the guy half an hour to install. I did the prep work beforehand.

Old glass out

Since I don't have a heater for the defroster vents to be functional, nor do I have a speaker in the stock location, I used some scrap pieces of exercise mat I had left over from another project, to block off the uglies beneath the mesh. Looks much cleaner.

Looking for a good quality good condition 510 spook; one that wraps around to the fenders. I'd like to see it and test fit on my car before I confirm purchase.

Dash 3 is 3/16" and is impossible for fuel lines. Dash 3 is for hydraulics. You need dash 6 which is 3/8"

Hmmm. Learn something new every day.

The eBay rads seem to be hit and miss. I'd say go for a Koyo if you can shell out that much. Just make sure to order a cap if that's what you choose.
