    Hey Bill,
    I've seen mention of you doing an obd conversion (actually see another member messaged you about it a year ago ). Do you have any details on that process? Did a search in the bullnose forum but didn't find much.

    Good morning to you sir. I was wondering if you might be able to help me and/or point me in the right direction.

    I have an 84 F250 with a 460 (gas obviously). I have absolutely no experience with automotive electronics besides basics(changing plugs, battery, starter celenoid, fuses, etc), and currently I am getting no power inside the cab, nor am I able to start the truck at all.

    The battery I had was old/worn out, so I replaced that as well as the starter celenoid and the positive battery cable.

    I feel confident that the ground from the battery to the engine is good as I was able to jump across the celenoid posts and the starter cranked up right away. I saw and read through a post that you were involved with some years back that related to an 85, but it was a diesel rig, not gas.

    Any help and/or direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Best regards,

    How are you doing with the EATC conversion. I'm doing this myself at the moment and have a few pieces that may come in handy for you.

    Always Bill, you deserve it!

    I didn't mean to suggest you were unaware of how that tunnel was going down, just that it related to your earlier post.

    I'm a geek for infrastructure!

    YOUR 2012 post
    "I have a NOS TV cable for a carbureted 300 6 w/AOD if you need it. It was bought to use on a friend's E150 but never installed."
    Do you still have? Would you happen to have a photo of one of these hooked up? I want to put a AOD behind my 240/300 thanks for any input
