    TECH DAY is now 24 JUNE!

    We had originally decided to do a tech day on 1 July. My schedule has opened up on June 24th so I propose moving the tech day up a week.
    What say you?

    June 24 & 25 is amateur radio's field day weekend. A local club will set up stations in a field at Burke Lake Park and be on the air the entire weekend. I am not involved other that to stop by and check it out.

    Oh, yeah, that's right, I forgot about the HAM field day thing... I don't know that there were many in the club that would be affected by the potential conflict.
    I was going to go to the radio thing so my kids could run around...

    July 1 I guess is the holiday weekend so I'm out, but am around the previous Saturday and the 8th. At this minuscule blip in time I have nothing needs fixing, but that could change in two shakes of a lamb's tail.

    I'm not sure I am going to make it to this one. I'm coming back from Vacation and have things around the house to get done. I am going to try and get the 4.88 3rds in before CMCC.

    If @apinti gets all of his parts we are going to need several people willing to work.

    Wow! I don't know about that. Sounds way too complicated. :hmm:
    Plus that big wire is really intimidating.

    I really appreciate you thinking of me:), however at this point I only have the front bumper and the winch. Slee will ship my lift on Tuesday, so I very much doubt that it will get here from Colorado by Saturday. The bumper and winch should be pretty much bolt of and on,looking at the instructions and YouTube. I was waiting for the heavy springs to install it,but if you guys can give me a hand we can hang it on Saturday. Other than that,I can help with whatever you guys need.

    Ed, my low gas light came on about a week ago regardless of how much gas is in the tank. Prior to last week it always functioned as it should. I am guessing that it is something electrical in that the gas gauge is operating like normal. Any help would be appreciated. I also have a question on my rear dome light.

    I will do some homework. It could be as simple as a switch on the fuel level sending unit or it could be computer controlled. What year is your 80?

    Anybody have any 80 schematics?
