Re: [DML] Cap and Rotor removal/Instrument cluster power problems



Hey Shane!  You made Captain!  Congrats.
The only way I know of to make replacing the distributor cap easier is 
to take the air mixture box from between the plenums.  This means 
dismantling the idle air path, removing the w-pipe in the rear, and 
disconnecting the fuel distributor from the air box.  It's only worth it 
if re-assembly is a job you do quickly and well.
Take a look at the two electrical signal connector blocks that plug into 
the back of the instrument cluster.  I'll bet you'll find one of the 
positions bent over or pushed back.

properly accept for the temp guage.  So, I got a new guage and replaced 
it, all

was well, but while I had the cluster out I noticed that someone had 
soldered a

jump wire from the temp guage to the passenger side of the printed 
circuit board.

  I replaced the circuit board and the whole passenger side of the 
cluster doesn't

work.  Any ideas on how I can get the wiring redone or possibly run a 
jump wire

on a more consistent and powerful lead?
