Major life event. Not much to report other than the purge has begun.

Spent the day tidying up. Built wire harness for aw70 overdrive. Replaced shifter that was hiding in plain sight. Working on air filter box. Got some great tips from fellow members. 3 40 gallon trash sacks full of duplicate wire harnesses gone to the dumpster.

The 262 swap has 100 miles on it. Performance is better than expected. Because I have been a wee bit heavy on the go pedal economy is down. Or maybe I didn’t get the tank full?

Under the dash on the 262 looks like a bomb went off in the phone company. Keyless entry remote start non Oem radio. Wires every where. There is a new remote/keyless unit waiting for install. Great opertunity for cleaning up the mess.

All of the wiring came from 90 244 with abs and the better a/c. Left front turn signal did not work. So I ran a wire from the switch to the light. Being all the dash is out now is the time to fix. Found a added wire coming out of the body harness with the same colors as the lh turn light. Blinks now. I might have cut the terminal off during the swap not knowing it’s use.

Should have done this swap long ago. The old b230 with the zf trans was basic transportation. Now it is fun. Only glitch is the keyless entry is not in sync with the linker. Car is locked but the phone app shows it unlocked or app shows its locked but it is not. Now to get rid of the dead bodies. The purge is near.

Spent Saturday sorting parts. Where did all of these computers come from? Brackets hinges slim brake booster wheels transmissions. Looks like a hoarder lives here.
