  1. Started new post............................. 53 pontiac electrical
  2. New project this week... Putting wiring harness back in the car.... Should have marked things a little better..... Lots of help here on the forum though... I'll keep ya posted... John
  3. Well, late day... No electrical work tonight... Dark and raining here in SE PA.... Tomorrow is another day.!!
  4. I will run a ground wire direct to battery... ThinkIng about this, I should know better.. most electrical issues are ground related. Since the car was separated from frame, epoxy undercoated, frame painted, new rubber body mounts, there are multiple points of failure here.. Lots of time to think about this while driving truck.(my day job)... Thanks to all responses so far... I will post results tonight.... By the way, Im writing rhis as truck is being unloaded !!! .... Jihn
  5. One wire only on sending unit... Grounded through tank straps to frame.... Also have jumper from sending unit screw to frame... Confused, l am.....
  6. Tank initially has 2 gallons in it. Reads 1/8 full... Ok, then key off.. reads full... ?? Add 5 gallons, key on, reads about 1/3. .. key off, goes to full... Key back on, reads 1/3..... Not even drinkin today !!! Just doesnt figure in my brain... No other car or truck I ever had, did this..... Guess I do need a beer, then move on..... John
  7. Just thought it should go to empty when key off.... Not full..... Oh well, as long as it registers proper while running, I guess no worries... Thanks for your reply Jack M
  8. Whats going on here ?.... 53 pontiac fuel guage reads full when key off. Start engine, reads proper... Added fuel... Restarted engine and guage shows additional fuel... Stop engine, guage goes to full.. Key on registers ok.... History... Tank removed and cleaned. New sending unit installed. Tank has not been completely full for some time as restoration continues, so not much sloshing of gas in tank... Probably 2 years... Any ideas on this ? Thanks in advance, John
  9. Another weekend over already... Had some progress though... Got new firewall pad installed.... Most all holes lined up... Vent holes need enlarged slightly for deflectors to fit. Not a big deal.... Defrost/heater air box installed.. Wiring harness is in, just not completely operating yet.... tracing all wires with test light.... (no fancy tools here. !!) Found 3 breaks so far... taillights/breaklights work.. Fresh air vent cables in... The announcement of the fall Gettysburg event is great to hear... Also, only 20 miles away... Might not be complete, but I sure am trying to be roadworthy by
  10. Explain to your wife that the next milkshake run may have to be postponed due to lack of proper saftey/reliability equipment needed for the car. Then order your parts !!!
  11. Good for you Phil...... I need to get my wiring haness in next... As long as I can make brake lights work, we are going for ice cream...!!!
  12. Its all good... Whatever you call them... Round here they even say Ponyyack.....
  13. Success.... Wipers installed and working.... Cleaned Trico vac motor out with wd40... Works smooth and operates at infinate speeds with no flutter..... John
