Re: Is there a reliable upgraded starter for a 2L DOHC?

It's easier to just run the wire off the alternator post rather than the starter post. I agree, As you stated electrically both points are the battery + terminal. A difference being the alternators output passes through a #10 wire to the battery terminal of the starter solenoid. This wire is margin...

Re: what wire is this?

I wonder if it could be for the voltage regulator. I think there is an orange switched power wire that goes to the voltage regulator from fuse 10. Then there is a gray that goes from the voltage regulator to the alternators field.

Windshield wiper motor 6 pin connector

Does anyone have a photo of the wire orientation of the 6 wires and their location in the nylon connector for a 6 wire wiper motor that uses the 6 pin connector??
Trying to assemble a connector but I don't know the proper location for the wires. I don't have a car for reference either.

Thanks

Re: Chasing timing marks

Not trying to start a debate Thanks for your comments and diagram I have cut open a few of the black moldings where the wires to the pick up exit. What I found inside of the older pick-ups are the leads exiting the molding are a very flexible wire with a soft insulation. These wire are spliced to m...

Re: Chasing timing marks

I am pretty sure the correct rotor should have a noise suppression resistor epoxyed into it. It would be the correct rotor for use with a distributor that does not use ignition points. over the past few years I have noticed a number of new distributor caps have the damage you describe. Not sure of t...

Re: Chasing timing marks

I recently worked on a friends car and found when he installed his new pick-up in the distributor he had installed the magnet upside down. The line on the magnet appeared to be marked opposite to his install instructions. I made the magnets physical shape match the pick-up base shape ignoring the wh...

Re: Fuel Tank Interchangeability 124 Spider

Thanks for your post Jim.
Maybe I'm looking at the photo or just thinking wrong but are the wires for the fuel gauge connected correctly? I was thinking the red wire (fuel warning light) connects to the rear most terminal on the sender.

Re: 1983

,I have checked with node light and they are dead until it gets cold
the Node light needs both the power from the dual relay and the ground from the ECU to light. Have you measured voltage with a vltmeter at the injector connector with the ignition switch on and the AFM flap open??

Re: 1983

Referring to the Fiat Manual: Spider 2000 Electrical Diagnostic Manual 1980-1981 Power to the fuel injectors comes from the dual relay. If you are loosing 12 volts to the injector connectors I would check for 12 volts at pin 88e of the dual relay. The ignition pick up and ignition control module can...
