The boat has an intact hardtop and the bubble windows are still very clear. The hardtop is a tangerine color as well as the trim. I knew very next to nothing about these boats as I was hauling it down the highway after buying it. But I have come to find what a unique classic these boats are! The boat is in overall good shape and I’m excited to start restoring it and getting it on the water! I’ve been restoring it with the help of my father in-law and now she’s ready to go. If you see me out and about, give me a shout! Covered and in a hydrohoist. Roy and Sheri roy. Our Torpedo always gives our family and friends a fun filled ride!

Not saying that’s wrong, I just don’t have any experience with late TJs. Are the gauges all digital read-outs, or analog? Analog signals from the sensors go to the computer. The computer interprets them and sends digital signals to the gauges via the bus.

I own a Rialta and live miles from the closest VW dealer, in Reno. The air never worked and I could not find another mechanic who could fix it. In I took the Rialta to a recommended indie in Chico. He got the air working, but by , it was blowing warm air again. I checked the forums, but the Rialta air seemed such a mystery. For years, with two dogs, I drove at night or in early mornings, to avoid the heat of the day. I was preparing to take the Rialta to a friend’s shop in Fresno, a mile round-trip with Tioga Pass open, but because of all the snow, Tioga was not open, turning the trip to Fresno into a mile round-trip x 2.
He was pretty sure it needed a new compressor, then said it might take awhile to find the leaks. It was not reassuring. A few days before I was to leave, my dog was diagnosed with cancer, but without air conditioning in the Rialta I couldn’t get her across the Mojave Desert to a specialist. A friend followed me in his car, across the Sierra Nevada to Precision. They were not able to get to it for a week, but called me with everything that needed to be done as soon as they had a list.
It did not need a compressor, so that was a big savings. It was out of refrigerant and needed hoses, o-rings, expansion and service valves, etc.

Tach wiring hook up ??
Dear Fellow Members, I hesitate to do this my hard drive is only 1gb , but I’m going to solicit advice from the collected Willys “brain trust” on this site. I finally got my 58 cj3b purchased three months ago home this past weekend. I know, I know I should be disbarred from the Willys club for waiting so long, but its a long story so don’t ask. The body is solid and straight, no cancer, very little surface rust and even has a solid tool box.
It has all it’s parts and pieces to include the original drive train and the remains of three-point hitch it had during its farm days. Only things missing are the side-view mirror and a spare tire mount.
Aug 03, · Im new on this Chevy side, but have been reading the topics here. The situation is that I have a Z with a Ford and a Chevy Camaro T5 gearbox. So this one is a real hybrid Problem no.1 is the speedo cable. Where can I buy a speedo cable that .
I’m wondering if I can put this engine in a newer Chevy K with a bad I would like to have a extended cab with back doors or a 4 door pickup. If I can, what year can I go up to? What will I have to swap on the engine? Thanks for any help! Things that affect oil pressure are the weight of the oil used, temperature of the engine, engine rpm, clearances in the oil pump, the screen on the oil pick up, pressure relief valve, cam and crank bearing clearances. Just from the information you posted, it would seem your mechanic has made a logical call on replacing the engine or crank kit it.
I am sorry that I don’t have any good news to give you. You could see the place where you bought the truck to see if they are willing to help you out. If it’s a used car dealer, see if they would take it back on a trade. Or try to sell it and buy another vehicle. Using an ohm meter, measure the resistance between the sender connector contact and the instrument cluster connector.
Wiring an HEI distributor

I realize this page is pretty long, but I wanted to be sure that all of the possible information was available to folks so they could understand this swap before they did it.
It is important to mention up front that many of the Buick V8 and V6 engines are identical in many respects, particularly in the area of the distributor. Any place that I refer to the in a generic sense should be interpreted as applying to the other engines as well, unless specifically noted as otherwise. I did my work on a , but with a little extra double checking and head-scratching you should be able to do the same thing to any other engine that shares the same distributor mounting dimensions.
One more step
If not charge the battery and try to monitor it. Before you start to do any testing. Remove the distributor cap and make sure the ground strap is in the distributor. Some people remove them and then problems start You don’t know the history of the distributor.
All you do is hook one end of a ohm (1K OHM) resistor to the tach wire, and other end of resistor to key 12v+. The tach wire is found on the RED PCM connector for vehicles and the GREEN PCM connector on vehicles.
It was the first production crate engine to be offered with plug-and-play fuel injection and hp and lb-ft of torque right out of the box. The only downside to the early Ram Jet was the open-loop-only engine controller, the MEFI 3 multipoint electronic fuel injection, version 3. It seems that the brain of the system had some limitations.
GM Performance Parts addressed these issues around The unit is a true open-loop system. Just like your fuel-injected truck or car, the unit starts up in open loop and, after warm-up, switches to closed loop. With a closed-loop EFI system the computer constantly takes in input from several sensors, including the O2 sensor.
This kit consists of a MEFI 4 controller, a wire harness, an intake air temp sensor, and a heated oxygen sensor with mounting bung. This bung must be welded into the exhaust pipe, and the air temp sensor goes into the intake tube or manifold plenum. Placement is best done in the first few feet of the exhaust pipe after the manifold. Jeff Abbott of Painless Performance points out that the Ram Jet MEFI 4 uses a narrow-band oxygen sensor and adjusts all injectors the same regardless of which bank the sensor is placed in.
Most of the wires are in different places, and the MEFI 4 has a host of new ones.

If you have an idiot light you won’t have these wires.
I have a chevy luke. October 9, im needing to know what colour wire to hook up on the 2 wire pigtail for the magnetic dizzy control? These distributors can still be used but in a conventional tach input setup. David eliassen. November 14,
The car was complete, but there was water in the oil. It did not matter much to me – I purchased the car for next to nothing and fixing the head gasket would be a snap. I started to remove the head, and I discovered why Jaguar mechanics are such special people. I personally am comfortable working on any of the major USA car brands, since I have had my share of cars which needed fixing. The thing that made me ponder the reason why the car was sold so inexpensively was when the cylinder head refused to budge loose because of corrosion in the head studs it turns out that the studs penetrate the water jacket.
I had to use a chain hoist hooked to the head, and winching the ENTIRE car up by the head and waiting for a day, the head to eventually slid off. I had heard from numerous sources that many people have removed the original Jaguar motors and transmissions, and put in Chevy or Ford powerplants. Why would anyone turn a Jag into a hybrid monstrosity? The reasons stated were “Parts are much more inexpensive for Chevy motors than Jaguars”, “Better gas mileage”, “I can drive anywhere in the USA and if I have car problems, I can have the thing fixed right there without waiting for parts to come in”, “I am more familiar with Chevy engines than Jaguars”, etc.
I discovered that in the case of a Chevy swap, it is almost a “bolt-in” affair – one can perform a swap without any cutting or welding on the Jag body whatsoever. For instance, one can use a driveshaft from a ’70’s Nova and it is the correct length to go between a Turbo and the Jag differential, and Jaguar uses the same U-joint as Chevy, so it bolts right up. The power steering lines also bolt right up. One can put in a Camaro radiator in place of the Jag unit, without any cutting.
So, after the research, I decided to put in a Chevy and Turbo R4 overdrive automatic.
