        • Rodents ruined the sender on my temp gauge. Went to see what a new one cost. $80 or more. The ones I have came with the dash I bought used several years ago except for the speedometer and gas gauge. Only paid $200 for the whole works. Its a sport comp I think 2 5/8". I could go cheaper and get auto gage or summit/jegs with a similar black face. My fitech has a temp reading but it is intake temp and the gauge is in the head. Could just wait for swap meet season next year. Click image for larger version

            Thank you & the others who replied too The guy I bought the truck from wasn’t aware the wire was there. My battery tender has simple pinch clamps & no inline fuse so I didn’t recognize that it could be related to that.

            • Youtube says it may be possible to repair the copper line on the gauge. It's worth a shot anyway.

                Found this wire bolted to battery of the SS when I removed it for winter storage. Bolts in pic are from the +/- terminals of the battery. Wire was tucked up into fender. Absolutely nothing else anywhere near that location so must be for some type of electronic tool. Has 3amp inline fuse.

                          I think Dale is waiting for past participants to book before opening it up to the rest of our Bangshift friends.

                              Gotcha. The Mitten was in my backyard and I still couldn’t make it happen... Georgia would be a no-go.
                              Not even sure I can HRPT this summer. One graduating HS on June 1st & another headed to Japan for a 6 month Study Abroad program in August is eating up a ton of funds.

                                I really wonder why I am broke after two full scale 351C rebuilds in one year.
                                (Cries 20W50 VR1 and ponders losses in $1300 worth of roller lifter failure and trusting the wrong machine shop and engine guy)

                                2020...year of getting screwed by a Narcissist and learning hard lessons into trusting the wrong people on a business venture.
                                2021...year of singing "99 problems but an asshole ain't one"

                                Moved cross country twice on a role of the dice...I left Nebraska and came back to Nebraska.
