  • While waiting for a few more necessary parts and having beautiful fall weather, I decided to do a small upgrade to the fuse block.

    I'm done with this!

    Bought two "modern" panels and hooked up the existing harness and additional added circuits.

    Happy to have six open circuits, three tied to the ignition and three that are not. Hoping to fill up two or three open circuits in the near future.

    All the electronics are connected and working except for the lights.

    Progress!

    • Not many guys will say they wish their tube was 2" shorter, but I was saying that last night.

      I did shorten it a bit and managed to get the tube in.

      One swivel leaks terribly. It will drain in about a day. Ordered more. I want to measure new verses this one to see if the is a difference in the depth. It looks like this one doesn't go in enough to form a good seal.

      Rear lights working. I decided to try using Wago lever nuts.

      This will make adding a trailer plug very easy. It was also great for testing which wires went where as nothing was labeled, the run in the frame is new and there was only one wire left going to the driver's side.

      Seat box in and it's time to do a little cleaning up.

      • Anyone know what this is/was for, or where it went?

        Found it in a rust pile under the old frame.

        The only place I can think of is bulkhead to door sill attachment.

          • Apparently there is a fuel line shortage in my area. I had to go to four stores to find enough, has to go from the pump to the carburetor. I just wanted five foot of hose.

              The fuel line shortage is not just your location as there is none available here in central Pa.

              • I stopped by a Habitat store on a whim today. Not looking for anything in particular. Was surprised to find a like new timing light. I know my old one is toast. For $15 I could not pass it up.

                • I've been testing the headlights trying to get the wires correct. Final connections will happen after the wings are back on.

                  A question that I have, which makes me wonder if my wiring is correct, the main beam dash light is lit with both high and low beam. This doesn't look correct based on the wiring diagram. The main beam light is only on one side of the light circuit.

                  I think I have something switched up.

                  • Probably at the dimmer switch.

                      I switched it out for a dash mounted on/off/on switch. It has always been a pita to hit the foot switch wearing hunting/winter boots.

                      Power test fine at the back of the switch.

                        • Not very happy tonight.

                          I ordered a fuel pump rebuild kit. It states it is good for 2, 2a and 3 Series.

                          Click image for larger version  Name:	Screenshot (72).png Views:	0 Size:	68.3 KB ID:	208080

                          The diaphragm does not have slots to engage the arm. The gasket was too long and would not seat the pump to the block. There was no screen or gasket for the bowl.

                          Removed the pump when it is 23 degrees, with a wind chill of 9.

                          This kit does not allow the pump to be rebuilt. Not very pleased.

                          I obviously ordered the wrong kit or it is not listed properly, or both.

                          Not pleased. Will wait to see what the supplier says.

                          • Not any real help but I used the old gasket as a template and made a block off plate for the mechanical pump and went electric with a return line. Solved the problem of poor quality mechanical pumps and vapor lock. It worked flawlessly until I made the change to injection which also eliminates the two problems.

                              Someone told me awhile back this is what they used to fix that problem
                              Says out of stock but I'd give them a call anyway

                              • Well that kit sure looks better. I can't tell on my phone if the diaphragm is correct.

                                The kit I received was an AllMakes4x4 part AEU2760.
