Pmom, we're still waiting for YOUR parts.
That'* the big one on the list, and we haven't done it. Need 3 or 4 hours on that one.
This afternoon (shortly) we'll be setting the final fitting angles and doing the final soldering and sealing. Top end gets bolted up at that point (after we leak-test things off the car).
I got my flowswitch today also, and found out my temp sender and gauge have been shipped. I'm running the signal (sensor) wire for the temp gauge through the normally closed (with flow) contacts of the flow switch, so if there'* no flow, I get an open circuit warning on the gauge (flashing). Good indication of a problem without adding a light.
Won't be a problem with determining LIM temps without the IC, as long as I flip the switch on the pump DURING a WOT run. I'll get a couple seconds of the peak temp, then it'll cool down.
