wiring not working correctly:
headlights are not not turning on, and the rear brake or turn signal stays on constantly. I have to undo the battery after messing with the truck.
in addition to that, I don't know if it is just the fact of having to turn the engine over so much, and not starting up right away, but the battery leads get really hot.
In addition to that, since I need to buy all new brake components, since the purchased ones were essentially core units, is there any option to have a different rotor from something else, that would give me the car's bolt diameter of 5 on 4.5"?
I'd love to be able to use some of the extra wheels that I have here.
Headlights: Check your dimmer switch first. My dimmer switch was bad and it made the headlights not work. Completes the ground or sumething.
Brake/Turn Signal: Really sounds like something switch related. Worse case scenario thats a 60 dollar part, but make sure all leads go where they belong before dropping your cash.
Brake Components: I think the truck spindles are much bigger than any of the car components. Ig cross check part numbers on the autozone or oriellys website and see if you can find something. But I really don't think so.
Engine not starting: Mine has had a similar issue lately since it got ran out of gas. Invite a friend over, two people help a lot. When you are playing with it, prop the choke open. It's getting warmer and you shouldn't have to worry about it as much. If you can get it started, have a timing light real close by.
Things happen and it is hard to stay motivated. Someone stole all the gas out of tank not only #1. Im out $40, #2. They screwed up my carb. All things happen for a reason, just keep the patience.
