    Re: Hide the Women and Children

    Looks like he kept the original gauges except for the tachometer. Isn't getting the exhaust routed out one of the main challenges of a V-8 conversion? Well the builder was up to the challenge!

    TR2/3/3A Re: Flasher Unit, A Clue?

    Might be the switch in the control head, they can be finicky, if the other side works you are getting power from the solid green wire to the TS circuit.
