a couple other questions...

in this pic:


does anyone have any idea what wire that is in the green circle? Also, how am I supposed to get the cap off of the hydraulic clutch cylinder (in the red circle)? I don't want to force it until I know if it screws off or just pops up.

I know these "mystery wire" questions are pretty vague but maybe someone might recognise where they are supposed to go:


(sorry for the blurriness of that pic) and finally this one:


thanks, Dan.

I have the same set up. (I PM'd you.) I think the wire in the green cirlce, mine is disconnected too, goes to the light on the hood, I think.

The hydraulic resevoir cap does come off. It is in a bad spot, but I push down and unscrew. You don't turn it a full circle. It is similar to the radiator cap. You might not need to push down though. Non the less, it does unscrew off.

I will try to find the others in question. There should be a wire that goes to the carb. which controls fuel flow during idle.

The wire in the last picture looks similar to the wire that plugs into the blower motor. Is this wire on the passenger side of the engine? If so that is my guess.

carb wire...

there are two wires that are currently plugged into the carb. The one on top has two plugs and the one on the right (on the right when looking at it from the front of the car) is plugged into a little unit on the carb (sorry...I don't know what this "unit" is or I'd say). If the remaining wire is the one that regulates the idle it coule be the one causing my problems.

thanks again. Dan.

I still can't get that damn cap off of the hydraulic clutch cylinder. Time to start forcing things!
