Now I Know My Factory Shift Point

My car has never had a tachometer, until today. I finished wiring a secondary fuse block underneath the dash, with 12V triggered by ignition. I had the main power feed from the battery fused, and...

Wish you the best on the search for a good TOB gunjam. This is why I convinced myself to go with a hydraulic slave cylinder. I have been working on the bracket for a while now. When I am done you can...

Awhile back I put reverse eye leaf springs on, which upset the pinion angle. I finally got around to installing pinion shims, which lowered the rear of the car somewhere between 1/4" and 3/8". I am...

I'm rethinking that it would be a great idea to add a small fuse block for switched 12v inside the car. I think I will do this. Later on i could see this being helpful. I am assuming the pink wire I...

I tested the ignition switch today to see which terminals get switched 12v, and I will admit I spliced into a pinkish peach color wire that I found there. According to the gauge instructions it pulls...

Need a 12v source hopefully inside the interior already for "only 12v when ignition on". Ignition switch is the only thing I can think of, and I can't find a schematic or diagram of it in the factory...
