Had a little time today after class to try figure out the temp gage... No luck.. I read if you hook the ej temp gage wire to the ea temp gage wire pin 13 right? It'll just read half the normal amount on the ea gage..... It's reading full on above the red and beyond.... I even tryed with with the resistor... Nothing... Any one have any ideas?

OH yeah!! when i bought the car it came with a bi mart 84 battery, and it was still under warranty for another 3 years so they pro rated the battery and so i got a brand new one for 45$ instead of 80$ :headbang: and then talked them into giving me the warranty from today ON instead of for another 3 years!! :headbang::headbang::headbang::headbang:

Now time to work out the oil pressure gauge!

Oh my sweet Jesus!...... Just took her for a spin just around the block... I've never felt that much power... The tires could hardly get any tracking because it just wanted to go! It's scary fast! Even with the large tires!

It wa fun untill the rear drum locked up agin... Looks like I need to find sole rear disks at the yard... :/
