    Resistor help

    The GM wiring harness manual indicates that a 5000 ohm- 1/4 watt resistor is needed for the RPM signal. What I've done is soldered a 4700, followed by three 100's. The four soldered together makes for a rather long chain. Is there a better way to do this, and how should I go about protecting...

    Back to the QR discussion

    So as not to muck up Ken's build blog, I thought it best to start a new thread. I received my Pfadt adapter today, and was really expecting something larger than what it is. It's really quite tiny! I was holding off on buying the actual QR mechanism because I wanted to see just how close this...

    Looking for wire covering

    I've been on the hunt for NYLON corrugated split loom wire cover (gray stripe), but haven't found a place that will sell short lengths. Most places, like Waytek, have a minimum purchase of 100'.

    Fuel sender unit?

    I searched the forum for information regarding fuel sender units for the Koso gauges, but came up empty handed. I see that the Koso has a range of 100 ohms, and 510 ohms. Albeit more pricy, is there any reason this unit wouldn't work? RA9511-ISS - ISSPRO Inc. I've measured the tank depth to...

    Hydraulic lift question

    I'm working on installing my hydraulic front end lift kit, but have some questions. My original plan was to mount the rams on the top of the shock, which should make bleeding easier. However, when I do this the upper area of the ram does not seat completely to the cap. The cap has a beveled...

    Levitating bodywork

    Working in smaller spaces is sometimes quite challenging, thus I needed to figure out where to store my center spider. My only idea was to hang it from the garage door rails. The garage door is a single-wide that is steel inside and out with insulation. So, I guestimate that it weighs more...

    Name that part

    Yes, I am ignorant.:shy: Now that that is out of the way, I'm looking for some elementary information in the form of "What is this part called?". I appreciate the forum entertaining my benighted questions. Your answers will help me to refrain from making references such as "The upper...

    A few photos of my car

    Last month I went to RCR to see my car for the first time. Just thought I would share some photos. I'm still amazed at the cartoon sized width of the rear tires. Makes the tires on my Land Rover seem like something from a tricycle.
