i picked up some audio materials so i can wire up this radio. also picked up the mini wire clips needed for the wiper. ill jethro something up with mr. fife and get them workable. ultimately ill need to acquire a new motor in order to get the pigtail that comes with it, and then get a new wiper/brights assembly for the column. then ill be able to use the signal lever to operate the wipers. or ill leave it as is and use one of the switches to run it. what is most pressing is i need to figure out this sending unit issue. i have the proper autometer gauge (0-90) and i have the brand new sender assembly in the tank (0-90) along with the walbro pump. the ohm reading for the sender is all over the place. most of the moments its 100+++ ohm which causes the gauge to read way past Full. Every once in awhile it will forget its shitty disposition and send the right ohms. Back when it was doing that more often, the gas gauge would bounce from max to its position (pretty erratically). If you put the DM on the signal wire going into the gauge you get this same erratic behaviour with the majority of it being 100+ ohm. If you play around with taking the DM ground off then on you can get it to show you the right ohm reading for the fuel in the tank. Kinda at a loss of what to do. The next step I guess is to drop the tank and manually measure the sender at the start and work my way up. Anyone ever experience this issue before? I have the sender/pump assembly ground directly to the battery. The gauges are also grounded directly to the battery. The body is grounded directly to the battery. Block is grounded to the battery and firewall.
