I got the electrical center finalized and added mounts for the circuit breakers that will be used for the high output stuff.

So it took a bit of work and was certainly in a pretty confined area but I got the electrical center done. I did forget one circuit that I will add in this weekend but its pretty much done in here. I always build and then add fiuses per each system to test and verify.....

So I got a bunch of stuff put into the car--center console/dash/switch pod and shifter. The shifter took a bit of work. I first found the backup lamp switch brackets on the shifter housing was binding up the shift cable. Once I got that fixed up it was a matter of figuring out the needed process to get the shifter into place--should be easier next time.

With those items in I was able to start throwing voltage and was happy with the interior lighting...

I got the air system all plumed and finished. I ran the pump and found a damn leak. Well low and behold both the arb solenoids were leaking. I suspect they had been leaking for some time as my old york seemed to come on too often. Got them both replaced and the system fully functions nicely.

I got the roof put on and more parts--its really looking like something with every step. So the time had come to fire it off. I threw some gas in it, fuel pump did its 2 second prime and nothing-grrrrrr. I could not hear the pump run while cranking and the check engine lamp was not coming on. So I hooked up the scanner and no crank rpm-hmmmm...

So I did a quick basic check and found no voltage(12v) at the crank or cam sensor. I ran those 2 sensors off one fuse. So now I had to dig into the harness and I don't know how the hell I did it but somehow I got one power circuit mis-directed(ecm was supposed to have 2 fused circuits one B+_ and IGN B+). Well I had 3 circuits and the cam/crank simply wired togther-oooffffff... Can't believe I did it but I fixed that up. Now onto the ses lamp the ecm ground command was there and pulled the dash top--well I totally spaced the fact it being led and got the circuit backwards--fixed that and ses lamp works.

So I cranked it over and it spit/popped. Well when I had the motor out prior to painting well I had spaced off making sure the distributor was correctly indexed. Well guess what it was off and the damn crank pulley has 2 marks. Well I got it corrected and the damn thing fired right off...
