today i added green LED's to the dash cluster Wink and pulled the pioneer cd player out to add this $8 adapter to add an auxiliary ipod input to the older pioneer stereoThumbs Up that didn't have an aux input!  now i don't need to replace that stereoClap
For PIONEER IP-BUS AUX INPUT ADAPTER CABLE to 3.5mm AUX CD-RB10/20 MP3 Pio35 super easy to do Big smile BUT you must program the setting in the stereo for it to work!!! but super easy to do Wink
 here's a video i found showing how to do it... (btw he has the same exact stereo i have) but it should work on any pioneer supertuner if it has the blue 10 pin ip bus receptacle in the back Wink

a few days ago i swapped out the original Mitsubishi distributor for an mid 80's ranger dist. as i suspected the Mitsubishi cheap coil of wire style pick up reluctor may be starting to fail like it did back in the mid 90's... so with some wiring from an 80's f150 generously donated by pick n pull LOL i wired the ranger dist. to an accel GM HEI module mounted to a custom aluminum heat sink on the fenderwell and an aftermarket  50k coil Thumbs Up
 runs good but now i need to upgrade the electric fuel pump, as i also upgraded the carb from a 32mm to a syncronized dual 38mm! is runs out of fuel in the carb midway through a third gear burnoutConfused
