So it was the fusible link with the Black/Yellow wire :p If you had checked for resistance between both ends of that wire (the connector that was loose, and anywhere else after the fusible link) you...

That might work, but depending on how quickly it updates, and what kind of resolution it offers, you might get a bit of lag between where you start moving and when it updates.

I have no idea where either of those things are. The owners manual was probably eaten by wild dogs (judging from the previous owner), and the metal key-code tag was probably sold for it's weight in...

Thanks a bunch for that! I knew I had taken it apart once before to replace the connector on the back, but didn't remember if it was the front or rear that unscrewed!

So, the first two quotes I...

Those are some really good ideas - I'll call the local locksmith and see what he would charge for duplicating a key for the cylinder - pulling the whole switch & cylinder out and taking it to him is...

Ignition Cylinder Removal (no key)?

I've owned my truck for about 6 years now, and somehow I managed to lose the key without losing the rest of my keys (the joys of using a Carabiner as your main keyring) At one point in time I had...

If you've just replaced the solenoid, and now have no power to ANYTHING, check to make sure you've got all the wiring back in like it was before. Battery goes in from the left, with the Black w/...

Chase,

Glad to hear things are going well! I know the difficulties of being cramped for space too - I built a small 12x12 shed over the summer and it took me several long weekends (like 4), and...

That's right! Dur! Brain fart.

L&L, Summit, and Jegs all have the internally balanced 460 flywheels. Unfortunately, they all want a pretty penny for them - usually they're $300+ just for the flywheel!

I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but I'm pretty sure that you can't get the flexplate/flywheel off without having the torque converter completely disengaged from the engine. The bolts would need...
