I think that you put a set of remote gauges in your Wag at some point. Can you tell me where you connected your oil pressure tube and your water temp sensor? I found the electrical sensor connection for the oil pressure above and behind the oil filter and pump. Does this "bulb" thread out of the oil pump/ filter housing so that the adapter for the oil pressure tube can be threaded in? I noticed a cap on a long, cylindrical or tubular projection under the same housing. Could the new adaptor thread in there? My Chilton manual is not very descriptive about this. It looks as if the oil filter mount can be removed from the timing cover housing on these engines without interfering with the timing or interfering with the pump linkage. Is this true? it also looks as if the filter and pump are high enough on the engine to avoid draining all of the oil. If not, this is certainly no big deal. How about the water temp sensor? I noticed a couple of leftover sensors near the thermostat bulb housing - one actually stabbed in the back of it- from the long ago removed emissions components. These looked like good locations. What did you do?
My gas tank is leaking a tiny bit again. I suppose this is an ongoing issue with these old girls. I'll patch it up again. I have a new radiator on its way also. I plan on putting on an air lift suspension in the rear a little later when the bank account can stand it. The Pumpkin Farmer
how is your axle swap Stage Two going?
Hey man, glad to hear you're still working on the wag.

Yes, unscrew the electrical connector for the oil pressure. There should be a umber of fittings/adapters supplied with whatever gauge you buy that should fit right in.

For the temp sensor, there was a threaded bung in my t-stat housing if my memory serves, so i just installed it right there.

Thanks for the info Marn. I work on it when I can afford it. I'll be interested to see how your axle swap goes.

Also, nice axle!

Well I gave it a ride with the unicorn and it was much much better than with the offset axle but I was still getting vibes under similar conditions, but not as severe.

I measured my angles. T case yoke angles down 3*, pinion yoke angles up 10*

That is opposite but it sure as hell ain't equal! And definitely ain't equal when under load.

Turns out the shims that were installed long ago are 8*


image-1469597292.jpg



Pulled those out and measured everything again, still about 3* down on the engine side (measured on starter, bell housing, and a flat spot of the T-case, all the same) and now the pinion is at about 2* up. Wayyyyyy better.

Took her for a ride and it's about 90% better. Had it up to almost 90mph and I can hear/feel some vibration but it's nowhere near what it was before. It's probable that what I am feeling is because of the new poly transmission mount.

I am satisfied.
