The Beast is back in business!!!!

WWWWWWWW0000000000000000TTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!! Figured the electrical problem out. The battery is too dead to crank the engine, but when I hook the car to the charger and turn the key to "on" the fuel pump primes and the gauges jump so I know for a fact it will run now. I AM SO FUGGIN HAPPY. Now I figure out the cooling problem (probably a new radiator and fan), drive it to my g/fs house, finish the body work and shoot some paint with her dad. W00T!!1111oneoneone!!!11

Yup. When I extended the headlight wires to hide them in the fenderwells, I used too thin of a gauge wire and melted them. I said "screw it, i'll fix it later". The other day I realized the power wire to the ignition switch was in that same bundle and got melted as well. I beefed up all the wiring with 12 gauge and now its all good.

Very cool. Now what happens when you are finished. You will need something new to do with your time.

sweet dude i just fixed a heating problem i was having, running about 230*.

180* tstat
full flush
new coolant(30/70mix)
water wetter
new cap

now im running around 200*

and i had to readjust the throttle cable. when it got hot the cable would tighten and my idle would hang around 1500. just loosened 2 bolts while it was hot, the cable slid over a mm, idle returned to 800 and tightened it.

doesnt it feel good after everythings running right.

why do you even use coolant living in cali? If it never got cold here Id easily have only water in my cooling system. water wetter works much better with just water, and water disipates heat so much better than that synthetic coolant crap. man, id be all h20 in cali

brand new 160* t-stat, water pump was fun in the 90, haven't checked to see if coolant is flowing (that will confirm my suspiscions if its not though), i'd be pissed if i blew a headgasket on a 10k mile motor while sitting in my driveway for 3 months.

My guess is the radiator made for a normal rotation pump on a 64 289 and my reverse rotation 90 5.0 pump are working against each other restricting flow.

anti-freeze has a higher boiling point than water does, and it also has detergents and crap in it to prevent corrosion
