Re: Kijiji posting in Kamloops -Warning-

Posting already gone. Thanks for posting your info. It's a real drag when people aren't up front with what they are selling.

Re: 4WD fuel pickup line?

Can you post a picture of the two pick ups side by side?

I believe the tubes are silver soldered (different process than soldering) to the cover. You could fabricate a new tube using the old one as a template and solder it onto the new pick up.

Re: Looking for fenders 87-88 no rust

The antennae mounts on different sides. 83-84 on the left, and later years on the right, if I remember correctly.

Re: Tachometer connection problem

You have a different set up than North American cars. That looks correct according to your diagram. I think it's the negative terminal that gives the signal. Any luck yet?

Re: Tachometer connection problem

It needs to get its signal from the distributor, so I don't think your connection will work. There is a small unused plug near the distributor that I think may provide a signal but I have never tried. Worth a shot.

Re: Voltage Regulator Location

Thanks Petros. The alternator turned out to be internally regulated but I wanted to be sure. Got it running again.

Re: overheating by vacuum?

The fan switch in the bottom of the radiator has to sense a certain temperature to turn on the fan. From what you describe, it doesn't sound like coolant is circulating.

Re: Snowplow...CHECK!

Folian or Jimcrazy, can you post pictures of more details of the plow mounting brackets, etc. Thinking of turning one of my parts cars into a plow because my plow guy is no longer reliable.
