    That's one of the things I'm going to look at, along with the connection at C1 might not be making contact with the printed circuit, or maybe the sockets are bad. If the printed circuit is bad, hope I can find another one. I do have voltage at that contact, so maybe it just needs bent out. Will find out soon. Thanks.

    Lights are working now, just getting the rest of the connections hooked up (re: my recent email). I'll keep you posted.

    I know the red wire that goes to the cruise setup hooks up to the Vehicle Speed Sensor (light green box). The other's you're having issues with hook up to the column near the base or at the brake pedal.

    Got everything hooked up, and the circuits working. Couldn't get the brake lights working, so I started testing circuits, found out they were all good. Started suspecting the brake switch, and when I looked at a replacement, noticed that the plunger was not extended. Thinking about it, realized the switch may be sticking. Pulled the switch tonight, and it wasn't working properly. Took it apart, and found a rusty spring. Cleaned it as best I could, and checked the action,which seems ok now. Will put it back in this weekend and test it, because I ran out of time tonight before I had to run back to town for school-related things. Is it possible to put a white or dialectic grease on the spring?

    Good news! Got everything hooked up, and cranked it over, and the gauges worked! Cranked it over long enough to see the gauge head toward 60 psi! That should show that the pump works. The gauge may not be completely accurate, but at least it shows that the engine has oil pressure, what I've been working on all these months...what a relief! Now to get the rest of the dash put back together, fix the brakes, and put in a new fuel pump. Can't wait to hear it run!

    Putting the dash back together. On the drivers side, where does the barometric sensor fit? I know it should go near the ECM. The manual isn't clear. Thanks.
