Sorry, I didn't see the new(?) section. Been away too long I guess.
Anywho...I lied, there'* still some more Nuke-idge that had to be done -
Rear seats and carpet out now. I was chasing the three wires to the electric fuel pump where they tuck up under the seats and out the shell of the car above the driveshaft tunnel.
Ok, now the car is completely nuked, with more of the interior inside the house rather than inside the car. It'* been a productive morning as well. I was tracing down nearly every circuit on the car from the fuse block to the actual components being operated.
So far, I've got ignition, charging from the alternator, a working starter, coolant fan, exterior lights, brake lights, and backup lights. That just leaves the fuel pump, heater/blower circuit, and the instruments. And, fortunately, I didn't find anything living inside the shell of the car. ( I probably looked a little silly poking open the heater core door with the longest screwdriver I have...ready to kill anything that came crawling out of it.)
So, coffee break is over, time to go back to work. I really want to get the mechanical and electrical work done this weekend. With a working fuel pump, I can empty out the rest of the tank, drop it, clean it, and install a low pressure pump. Then I can get the new carpet in and hopefully have the headliner show up by the end of the week to get the rest of the interior finished.
The sooner I get this 3500lb paper-weight moving again, the sooner I can get to work on the Bonneville.
