Re: Electrical issues

If you really have to hear the pump run then jump from #77 to #77A on the safety switch plug and the pump will run whenever the switch is on.

Re: Electrical issues

Ok, without the safety switch you will not get fuel pump unless you jump wires in the plug. But you need power, do you have power at the horn? Or at the #25 fuse? Do the lights work? These should all have power with the switch off. If none of the above has power then you have a bad connection at the...

Re: Electrical issues

Keep in mind that all of my diagnosis and advice is based on a stock wiring harness that is properly installed. You have modified the harness with different fuses so I can only assume that is all in order. An A1 has three breakers and an A2 has only two breakers. An A1 has the #77 fuel pump circuit ...

Re: Electrical issues

Do you have the #5 wire hooked to the same wire on the foot switch as the one COMING FROM the battery? That is the wire it needs to be hooked to. The other side will only be hot while cranking. In addition, IF you have an A1 wiring harness in there and it is all hooked up correctly with the #77 circ...

Re: Info Request: TM for IR Headlight

I have never used the ir lights but I have read in some manuals somewhere that they can be dangerous and can damage eyesight if you look directly at them. The problem being that you do not realize the damage is being done since the wavelength is in the infrared spectrum and you do not see it other t...

Re: Found on CL - (Not Mine) 2020

I like his honesty in saying it has been rewelded but not showing any pics of underneath is not exactly a good selling point. Pro welder or not. 14 is really high for a reweld.

Re: Found on CL - (Not Mine) 2020

It's real body that someone has done some extensive work on to put doors and the top on. You can still see the original body sheet metal if you look close. The footwell cutout has been filled and bondo'd. The tail end I think has been completely replaced. Did you notice the gas tank? Not bad for a b...

Re: First MUTT restoration-M151A1

I tack welded one on a Jenson Healy in the car one time. It had come loose and warped a bit and was making even more noise than a 440 Mopar starter usually makes and the owner was afraid it was going to come off. Getting the engine out of the car was going to be very expensive so he opted for the ta...

Re: First MUTT restoration-M151A1

Did you replace just the ring gear and if you did where did you find it? That goo is the epoxy resin from the prestolite ignition usually, what did you replace the resin with?
