  • motorhead: Merry Christmas! Santa brought us a windy snow storm which ripped a few parts off the house and left us 5-6 foot high drifts. I wanted to move to Florida... we settled on the prairies.

  • motorhead: I would take an iguana on my head over 5 hours of snow blowing and shoveling yesterday. This winter is stacking up to be worse than last year's "generational" event. Going to the garage now to suffer differently...

  • Steve Wood: I always love it when I finish up a nice wiring job fixing stuff from ten years ago and realize that that small gauge green wire was not for the volt meter but is actually the tach signal feed and it goes to the negative side of the coil and not to the plus side.  F***
    January 08 2023, 12:04:08 AM
  • motorhead: I love returning to wiring jobs I did a decade earlier to realize how much of a hack I was. I have repeated this 2 or 3 times since getting into this hobby. It's hard on the ego.
    January 09 2023, 01:46:58 PM
  • Steve Wood: I have zero artistic abilities and my work usually reflects it.  My first mistake is to use 30% too much wire, "just in case".  My son is a tad ocd so I draw him a picture/diagram of what he needs to do and his results always look better than mine.  In my current case, I wired for a mopar distributor with a GM HEI module.  Then I switched to a Mt after probably 4 hours of running, so I went to a straight MSD unit and hooked the GM HEI  back up, but I decided to clean the wiring up.  I could not find another Camaro style terminal block on the shelf so I am waiting on a single post block and some 8 ga connectors in order to finish it.  It's hot wired off the battery as the factory wiring had a two volt drop before it got to the ignition.  Never started as quickly as it originally did with the original HEI set up.
    January 09 2023, 05:24:03 PM
  • Steve Wood: Meant to say, I switched to a msd rtr when I went to the stroker and it fried after about 4 hours of running so I am going back to an HEI module and a plain MSD distributor.
    January 09 2023, 05:25:46 PM
  • Just a Six?: Steve I have the same wiring issues & since I redid all the gauges etc to a panel on the back of the glove box so I've now created a soft ball sized bundle of oversized, extra long Red & Black wire.
    January 10 2023, 06:41:03 PM
  • Steve Wood: David, our cars were not really made to add additional stuff to and there are not a lot of accessible spots to add a terminal block
