11.7 Volts, your battery is dead! Time for the charger.
Yep! Been sitting in the Nova for about 3mo plus a couple bumps of the starter to find switched 12v circuits that deenergize when starting! I work all weekend so hopefully in 2 weeks I can get it on the road. I was really hoping to make the Buick show in Puyallup, Wa but I'll be pulling a 48hr work shift
Did a little wiring today! Converted the factory taillights to sequential taillights using the Eddie Motorsports sequential kit. I just had to get a 3 wire socket for the middle lights and do some rewiring! Took about 2 hrs in between beers
Nice and Nice! I've contemplated converting my tail lights to sequential. I have a second whole rear tail light harness for the car and a spare T-bird sequential box as well as a aftermarket digital replacement unit for the T-bird. Just never sat down and took the time to see if I could get it all to work together. Again, very nice!
-Thanks! I really like them!! A little slower would be nice but for $25 I can't complain.
-Upgraded the trans cooler! I have AN lines ran from the trans to the cooler but then I used hose clamps on it because I was too cheap to buy the right cooler when I was younger. I went a little crazy with the AN fittings this time around and used bulkhead connectors to pass through the core support for a clean, finished look. I think it looks great! Also upgrading my 16" electric fan mounted directly to the rad to a shrouded dual speed 16" fan. Hopefully it will arrive by the weekend.
Don't mind the chaos that is my garage lol
$25?!?!? How can you go wrong!
Right! I actually ordered two because I thought they were so cheap it must be one single controller haha they come as a pair for $25!
PM me your address, I'll mail you $25+shipping to send me the other unit!
I already returned it otherwise I would!!
Inner fenders in, throttle cable hooked up, fuel tank swapped, lines ran and pump mounted. Exhaust given the high temp rustoleum treatment and mounted up. I need to mount my fan shroud and electric fan next!
Love the progress man!
Fan and shroud are mounted! Used a Summit shroud with a 17" Derale dual speed fan. Plenty of clearance! Still need to finish up the wiring for it. The PCM will control low and high speed.
ALSO!!! She's alive!!!! Need to bleed brakes before I can attempt to pull her out of the garage.
My goal this weekend was to move the Buick out of the garage under her own power! Goal met!! Still have a lot to do to make her road worthy but this is a big step in the right direction!
Is that top radiator hose for real? Or is it made in two pieces? Sounds good!
Factory upper radiator hose for the 99+ trucks!
Got the sealed battery box mounted! Put in the fuel line brackets and wired up the dual speed fan!
Great work, I have been watching this thread from the start! Keep up the nice attention to detail!
