760 abs harness is a small reworking. I hope I am not creating more work.

What a nice guy white855t is.

Seriously though, if your trying post on a phone off Flickr or imgur, (2 I've used) it's actually really terrible.

Following because 7 series are awesome.

The small rework turned into a solid 6 hours. Installed a the controller and its relays in the space where the battery once was. RF. Turbo gets it in the LF. Shortened some lengthened others. Turned key on,dash light on, started,light went off. Rear calipers need fresh hoses. Drive shaft not in yet. So really don’t know if it works. How long does it take for you to hit the floor cause you slipped on a zip tie? It takes a lot longer to get up. CLEAN YOUR SHOP DAILY

Topped of all the fluids. Drive shaft in. Replaced rear calipers and hoses.lit it up. P/s pump sounds like a dying cat. Went for a drive on the lift to check abs. The front wheels are not turning so it detected that the fronts were locked. Brake pedal did it’s pulses so I think it works. But no speedo. There is plus and minus at the speedo. Tomorrow is another day.

Posted a request for help on the no speedometer. Same wire diagram on 2 books say it has a signal converter. I see none on the 87. Remove tank pump from the grey. I think the 88 pump is a bit sketchy.

Compared the rear section of the alb harness. Looks like there will be more time invested.

With the car on the lift I can “drive” it while trying to fix the no speedo. Yikes there is a big fuel leak. The hose from the tank pump split. Should have changed it when it was it was swapped.

Got new hose still have the leak. I might have broke the pipe that is on the sender unit. If my shop wasn’t a home for scorpions,black widow spiders,brown recluse spiders, centipedes—

Replaced clamp. Still leaking. Going to replace small hose. Started replacing windows and seals Saturday. Started on the lr. Transferred all parts. Went to raise the window and it wold not go all the way up. 6 hours spent. The problem was the rear run channel was not seated all the way.

Pulled the tank unit. Found a hole in the pipe for the feed hose. It was on the back side Close to where the pipe diameter increases so there was no way to slide the hose down to cover it.

Fed X man brought new rear muffler hanger. While installing it I noticed that the rear sway bar looked strange. Ahaha the dummy strikes again. It’s in upside down. And it was on the lift so it was easy. Might blame it on them green bottles.

Swapped the tank pump from the other car. Changed the harness connection. Soldered the wires and used heat shrink for insulation. Put it all back together. No start. Got power to it. Checked for a complete circuit,none. Pulled the pump again and found one wire had a cold solder. Should have checked it on the bench. It runs again and no leaks. Yet. Back to the inop speedo.

Decided to get the dead one out of the way. Got all the door glass and regulator swapped. There is lots of dirt in the doors so the next chore will be wash them out. Then install the panels. Still have the seats and carpet to transfer. I have been thinking about cutting out the back glass. The silver car has tint and the opens the chance of killing the defrost grid. Plus makes pulling the mint headliner easy.

Started installing door panels. Fronts are never a problem but the rear always have the pin clip retainers loose. Hot glue gun reattaches them. Big thanks again to our man in Dallas for adding the pictures. Maybe I will learn how to do this before my clock stops.

Door panels done. Started filling the dead cars trunk with plastic pieces and glass. Still on the fence on how to remove the headliner. Builder car could use a windshield but that would add dollars to the project.

Major screwup yesterday. Went to to roll up the windows and no response. Got the test light and started poking around. No power anywhere. After some more snooping I saw the problem. The retainer that holds the wires into the ignition switch had come off and a few wires had come out. Panic. Popped the retainer off of the other harness and snapped a few pictures just in case. The crashed body is stripped .now to fill it with the guts from the silver one

Back in the flatlands for a few days so we got some work done. Front seats out. Which is a job that I do not enjoy. Carpet and insulation out. Reinstalled all with the black interior from the 760. I had left milk and fresh cookies for the elves for payment in advance to clean up the shop. Place is still a mess.

Back at it. Idea was to cut out the rear glass on both bodies because the silver car has peeling tint. Closer inspection revealed grey body window has 2 cracks. How does tempeterd glass crack and not shatture? Hours spent.

Ever since I got it running again it had a big p/s leak. Got it on the lift today to investigate. Seems that some dummy did not tighten the line to the rack.

Update. Came to the realization that this project was burning way more time that could be used on something better. Pulled engine and trans for installation into my 262c. The 262 already has a b230 hp22 &2.4. Also starting reassemble of a 67 Coronet. Not my car,belongs to a friend.

Spent insane amount of time on transmission linkage. Same on oil cooler hoses. One needed to be a little longer.
