Hello everyone had a breakthrough.. all the wiring or should I say a lot of the wiring in my old bird was chewed up by some kind of animals or something. after some rewiring the last few days I'm happy to say I now have power back to the inside of the vehicle.. the ECM.. coil.. a lot of the essentials.. headlights.. I love the essential needs are now back to life.. hopefully this weekend we could see if she starts...

Good motor.  I have one in My 79 landau.  Are you gonna look for the right nose piece, or leave it the way it is? (My vote would be leave it; You'll NEVER see yourself coming or going in traffic!LOL)
