    Help Locating a Dead Short

    Update for anyone who has this issue in the future. Bottom line is the issue spawned from the combination of factory and aftermarket gauges in the American Autowire harness. Factory fuel gauge needs 5V and thus the CVR, however the aftermarket gauges require 12V and must bypass the CVR. I tapped...

    Help Locating a Dead Short

    So are you saying that even though my voltmeter is reading a consistent 14-ish volts at battery & starter relay it’s actually fluctuating between 12 and 0 V? I have not been able to find any sort of instrument voltage regulator behind the dash. Any idea where this is typically located? I’m...

    Help Locating a Dead Short

    Ok update: I located the shirt at the fuel sending unit. Shop had wired it up backwards. Now I’m having the issue of dancing gauges. When ignition is in either the accessory on or run position, center gauges dance at some sort of consistent rhythm. Fuel gauge reads as 1/4 tank past full. Voltage...

    Help Locating a Dead Short

    Thanks guys. I’ll dig into this a bit more this weekend and hopefully uncover the source. I do have a new single-wire alternator with built in regulator. If I end up trying to replace that, are there any recommendations for make/part number? Seems like I wouldn’t want to just use the same unit again

    Help Locating a Dead Short

    I'm looking for any recommendations from anyone who might have been in a similar situation. I recently got my car back from the shop after having new wiring installed throughout. When trying to install the center gauges and realized that the circuit they are on blows a fuse when turning the...

    Peculiar Engine casting number

    Thanks guys. Unfortunately the engine is in the car now and I'm unable to locate that partial VIN code mentioned on the back of the block, even with a small mirror tool. Not a big deal, it just seemed odd to me once I started to dig into it...wasn't able to find anyone else online that has had...

    Peculiar Engine casting number

    The engine in my car has a peculiar casting number. It reads "DOAE-" and that's it. Does anyone know anything about this engine casting number? It seems like from everything I can find it appears that it is missing additional letters/numbers after the dash. Did someone grind it off or what? The...

    Looking for help in North Texas

    Ok I will make sure to look into carb adjustments next.  I did not measure the fuel pressure, but when we unhooked it from the carb it was spraying to the front of the engine bay when we cranked the engine, and filled a small container with fuel after only a few attempts to turn over the...

    Looking for help in North Texas

    It's the Summit Racing 750 cfm carb. All of the literature that came with it said that it should be configured correctly from the factory, so I have not messed around with it as of yet. I'm getting great pressure from the pump so pretty sure it's not that.

    Looking for help in North Texas

    I've recently relocated to Texas from Michigan, where I had the engine rebuilt (And where the car is currently being stored). Wondering if anyone knows of good mechanics/shops to contact in the DFW/North Texas region to help get the car running. I was able to get the rebuilt engine/trans in the...

    To Be Or Not To Be...Original Or Modded?

    I recently had my engine built on the mild side of what you are looking at. I told my engine builder that my target was 400+/- hp, reliability, and a fairly stock appearance. He built it to 10:1 compression so it will require premium fuel, which I was fine with. He was a very knowledgeable...

    Help...Initial Fire Up Problems

    Wouldn't this prevent it from even cranking? It cranks just fine, just won't turn over. I will check the dwell angle this weekend. The coil voltage is fine, 12.6 or so. Yes I planned to drain the fuel tank before trying again for sure. I did read something about priming the oil pump so I will...

    351C 2V Complete Engine for sale

    I assumed that this may have been a service vehicle as well because of the dual dipsticks. Back when I was researching this engine to start as a project, I was coming to many of the same conclusions as you guys. Unfortunately the first 4 digits of the VIN stamped on the heads are scraped off...
