    Hello Roland,
    I am "electrical principal" challenged and need some clarification about testing my sending unit. You said to use the trunk connector going to my current sending unit by using a test probe to make a connection to my new unit. What is a test probe? Those alligator clips? I understand about grounding the unit but it sounds like this is a way to test the new sending unit without dropping the tank by using the sender wiring harness in the trunk. Can you give a little more information? I am too embarrassed to ask publicly but I want to learn. I am doing the radiator core support bushings and have some of the front end apart but installing a battery for this test is not a problem. Thanks for the help, Robert

    Hello,

    I wanted to thank you for helping me with my timimg. Its still out of whack but at least I feel that I am on the right track.
    Yesterday I set the total at 38 while the initial was actually at like 9. I think I said 11 on one of my other post. But anyway, I then hooked up the vacuum advance and it jumped to like mid 20's at idle. Problem is, it idles fine for a minute or 2 in drive and then acts like it wants to die. I got tired of jacking with it so I put it up. I did not check my vacuum with the changes but I have a feeling its low from the way the engine is running. But anyway, I just wanted to personally thank you for all of the help!!!

    Thanks,

    Anthony
