    Hey Jonh, Just went down and did what you said. The neddle was to the far right and when I grounded it the neddle went to the far right. So the sending unit is bad based on the test right. I actually ordered one from doc rebuild today. I'm going to connect the mech. temp gauge to see what I temp I get while waiting for the sending unit. Your the first one that ever said to do this check. Kudos to you. I'll post my results of the mech. gauge. Impressive background. Thanks, Tony

    Run a 5/8" NC tap through it, then install a 5/8" NC bolt, run it down until it bottoms out on the crank, then keep turning and it'll pop right out - no grease, no mess. :)

    The calculator comes back with a 4.96:1 axle ratio, so it's most likely a 4.56 axle with some speedo error. There are no 100-mph blasts in your uncle's future until he changes the axle ratio to...

    Is the original factory catalytic converter still installed? If so, it may be partially blocked and/or disintegrating right below your feet. :thumb

    The only time you need to disconnect and plug the vacuum advance line is to set initial (base) timing. Idle mixture is adjusted with the engine in normal idle condition. :beer
