Yard test

Posted 01-29-2014 at 06:32 AM by sabahtom

After doing a bad job on the 35-pin ampseal connector to the motor controller, I couldn't get it to start. So undid everything and recrimped it. Three hours of my time gone, hopefully painful enough to remind me to do it right the first time.

Wiring behind dash complete

Posted 12-09-2013 at 06:30 AM by sabahtom
Updated 12-09-2013 at 06:33 AM by sabahtom

Since everything seems to work, I've pulled the cables through the dash and fixed the PB6 pot box to the chassis, with a backup spring. A failed return spring seems to be the only major fault that AC systems can have that would launch me through a red light.
