  1. Brights Stuck On

    1C - Lighting and Signal Systems
    So I was driving back on the highway the other night and I turned my headlights on. Immediately the lights went out and my car refused to switch back to the low beams. I thought it was the switch in the steering column, so I replaced that. No difference. I checked the relays (I still get the...

    1D - Wiring Diagrams
    Hello, all - new member, first time posting. I have a lovely 72 GT 1.9L that recently suffered a short behind the dash that was severe enough to cook the loom just past the firewall under the hood. At a minimum, I'm going to be replacing the harness behind the dash and under the hood as a...

  7. Motronic M 1.5

    Fuel Injection Mods
    I'm in the process of figuring this all out. My plan is to retain the stock 2.4 EFI system and swap the 2.4 manifold for a cut down 3.0l with a larger throttle body.
