Re: WTB: Working AE86 cluster (California, NorCal bay area)

UPDATE: I managed to figure out the problem (I think) and I got my speedometer as accurate as it was before (I think). I took a bunch of pics and can share the info if anyone is interested. The unit might still be in need of replacement, but for now it's working OK and I can hold out for something l...

WTB: Working AE86 cluster (California, NorCal bay area)

WTB: Working AE86 cluster (Zenki preferred, but open to Kouki; likely SR5 due to budget). Location: California, NorCal bay area. Mine is working except the speedometer reads 1.5x to 2x too fast, causing me to enter hyperspace. Luckily the digits read the correct rate. Hoping to deal locally in the N...

Re: Wiring Kouki fender light OR clear bumper lens lights

Talked with yellowsnow4free and his approach mentioned in the post actually wouldn't work. Here's another approach that does not involve under dash changes that shagymc came up with.

Hey everyone, so here's a project I started a couple years ago with the intent of writing a DIY when I was done.

Re: AC Panel Swap

When I removed my AC panel I unclipped the attached cables on the other end, so the unit came out with the 4 cables attached.

I think you go in from underneath and spread the clip "prongs" out. Something like that... it has been a while since I've done it.

So I'm not getting gas to the fuel filter or pump! Here's some pics of a few electrical plugs that look important but are unplugged. Also, it looks like I'm missing a fuse on the positive terminal battery fuse box. On a 4AC, your fuel pump is all mechanical, so it shouldn't be a fuse issue. However...
