08-26-2013 06:41 PM 1930u- Gas Tank Sending Unit
I tend to be a bit anal about getting things done right the first time. Here's how I calibrated the fuel gauge. Of course I forgot about the baffle in the tank so I had to do it twice to make sure the float was free when I installed the sender unit. I also had a problem with the bolt flange. The tank bolt pattern did not match the sending unit. I opened up a couple of the bolt holes and all is fine now. The last thing I did before re-installing the tank was wire it up and turn the tank upside to make sure the float moved freely without obstruction. I also set it to make sure I had a little gas left when empty and set the full point to make sure I had some free board in the tank for expansion.

08-26-2013 06:08 PM 1930u the last week or so
Lots of progress over the last week or so but its all been tedious neat nick kind of stuff and hard to photograph. One item I will mention is the clutch safety switch. I made a bracket and installed it with the brake light switch. Also did the rest of the wiring. Spent a lot of time trying to organize and route wires. Here's a few shots. I will have to say its really getting tight under and behind the dash.

08-13-2013 08:46 PM 1930u- Turn signal switch
I wanted to install the turn signal switch over the weekend but I misplaced the one I bought and never did find it. Then I started thinking about just using a toggle switch but after thinking about it more, I bought another universal switch and installed it tonight. I really don't like the way universal switches look but I installed it behind my column drop and it really looks cool. I also juiced up the the whole electrical system by attaching my battery charger to the cable leads. I set it on 5 amps and tested everything I've wired to date. I have some old trailer lights that I used to test the turn signals and brake lights and all worked perfectly.

08-12-2013 08:39 PM 1930u- Making the battery cables
I used 2/0 (00) welding cable rated at 600 volt, 1,248 strands of 30 awg .671 inch diameter bare copper to make the battery cables. The ground cable terminates at the common ground point at the bell housing. The lugs have 3/8 bolt holes and are soldered to the cable. The battery will be located in the rumble trunk.
