    Didn't get a lot done today, but did get some double side tape to mount the rubber cowl/hood and grille/hood half round seals. Also mounted the windshield, with its "barn find" dirt in place, and drilled/tapped/welded a ground buss behind the dash. Picked up a 1/2npt plug for the bottom radiator tank. I'd never thought of putting my temp sending unit there, but that's what PRC says it's for! Anyway, I think it's ready for coolant now.
    Baby steps....

    What? they want you to measure the coolest part of the system? I've never heard of such a thing.

    JMHO, I believe they mean it is for the electric fan temperature switch.

    Bob, you're likely right but like Mike it surprised me. I initially thought it was for an anode, but decided a brass plug would be just fine!

    I expect 36sedan's right, as he generally is! My SPAL controller on the coupe has it's own sensor, and I chose to mount it in an intake port closest to the head, the hottest spot I thought, and then program accordingly. On an older manifold there might be only one port for coolant, so having one in the radiator would be perfect!

    I don't disagree. I'd have me a gauge hooked up to it for sure... just because! In my coupe I have the AOD tranny test psi port connected to a psi gauge in the cab. I used it to tune the throttle valve to carb linkage. I found it to be helpful so I left it in place. It drives my friend Mark crazy as it is always running up and down depending where your foot is on the gas pedal. LOL He just can't understand how it operates even tho' I've explained it over and over. I'd be curious to see the temp coming off the motor and after the radiator. again.. just because.

    Yeah, as I headed to the barn I thought maybe I'd dump in as much coolant as I could get it to take without starting the engine, and maybe fill & bleed the brakes. Got out there, looking at wires and wondered why there wasn't anything on the fuse block point labeled "Gauges"? Sorted through, looking at their overall wiring diagram and saw that it was a pink wire "12V Ignition Power" and found it triple lugged on the Ignition Switch. Yeah, it would work but the gauges wouldn't be fused.... Fixed that, then started putting covers on wiring on/around the engine to look prettier. Wired the horn - easy but needed a hole through the floor and gotta find a piece of green insulated wire to match - lacquer thinner takes off the wire ID info that American AutoWire uses, so score! Ran the electric choke power wire in and used a spare fused point for it, too.
    The tranny linkage had made me wonder a bit when I put on the NSS, so I unhooked it and sure enough the lever on the trans had 3 more detents forward (1-2-3, then D, then OD). Found that the little heim joint rod end was catching on the tranny. Easy fix, taking off the actuating lever on the shifter, whanging it a couple of times then using the vice to flatten a bend, but it all takes time. Back together I've got all positions now, and the NSS is right too! Decided it would be best to have a radiator cap before dumping coolant instead of yellow painters tape. O'Reilly's has one - tomorrow....

    Yeah, the minutes become hours!

    Another of those kind of days today. Changed out the hard line connections for tranny coolant to 3/8" barbed tube and got them plumbed. Learned that it's best to measure close for the rated rubber hose at nearly $4 a foot! At least I could use a piece of the left over for my crankcase breather to carb hose!

    Plug wires - why don't they make wires with the HEI end straight instead of 90! With #1 and #2 adjacent and needing to cross, and #3 and #6 adjacent and needing to cross, and with an air cleaner and firewall that leave almost zero room it's a PITB! If the wires came straight up it would be so, so much easier! Just like the old female cap connectors, wires straight up!

    A box that takes pictures and a privy in the house? REALLY, can you imagine how big that box would be and how the house would smell.... I believe you've been watching a little too much SciFi.
