    Seems like servos or solenoids would be a better choice?

    Here is an outstanding article about one of the "greatest generation" and his diary about those days 75 years ago.

    One sold in Canada a few years ago for about $120k as I recall. I think I'd just as soon have a Tiger for that kind of money.

    One of the BACC members brought a Jaguar DVD last week that included video of a guy driving the XJ13 on a closed course. I hadn't seen the car before, but fell in lust pretty quickly. It has...

    I can't believe I'm agreeing with Silver, but when he's right he's right!

    Wow those should be outstanding tires for the price! And I was complaining about the price of Michelins for my Audi.

    They are not run flats, just good performance tires.

    Looks like the warranty is only 30k miles......

    Fair question, but I don’t think so. It ran and worked great for 400 miles. Something changed.

    Can you get the size you need in Michelin Super Sports? I’ve been really happy with mine on my Audi A7. They are quieter, handle, and ride better than the stock tires. Plus they have a warranty...

    Well it seems I was overly optimistic. Even though the car ran great with everything working yesterday after buttoning it up, it blew fuse 3 again this morning when I took it out. I’ve reverted the...

    Dan,
    Thanks. It's pretty interesting that I'm usually very impatient. Per Ted's comment, I've been known to trash a project when things didn't go well (I silver brazed a Reynolds 531 bike frame...

    Sometime overnight I remembered Doug telling me to remove the connector behind the driver's side rear wheel and short the forward pink wire to ground. If the gauge responded it meant the fuel sender...

    Alright, definitely found an issue with the fuel sender. I cut the wire at the tach, tested continuity and it was open from ground to the pink wire connected to the tach, and shorted to ground on the...

    Seem to be gaining on it. The only things not eliminated are the wiper switch and the fuel sender. I'm thinking through the least destructive (and easiest) way to eliminate each.

    Got a little bit of data today. At this point I'm pretty sure the problem is not on the heater portion of the circuit.

    I pulled the heater switch out of the dash and checked continuity. The light...

    Dan,
    I've been swamped at work and unable to work on the car. The charging system continues to work fine, but I still have the short somewhere that I need to track down and fix so my gauges will...

    Ron,
    There are two wires to the fuse that keeps blowing. They are crimped in a single ring lug, and I hate to separate them as there's not much wire to work with at the harness, but may have to.

    I think the low point seen is exhaust, not the pan.

    I got the charging system working by eliminating the ignition and gauge circuit from the charging circuit. Now to find the short!

    It's not just dumping in the ocean--trash on land can wash out to sea, and plastic sticks around for a very long time (as does mercury, lead, etc.)

    Ron,
    I've got a meter and the next step is to checking for things that are grounded that shouldn't be. Bob Putnam suggested pulling the ignition light and removing it from the circuit, which sounds...

    Nomad,
    I took some of your advice last night without even knowing it as I stopped looking at this and the other site and focused on what I'm good at--a double Auchentoshan 12 year old soothed the...

    It's not the gauges (I removed them from the circuit), it's not the alternator (replaced, no luck), it's not the voltage regulator (replaced, no luck). It could be the battery I suppose, but it...
