WIRE LOOM! Fyi much cheaper at Home Depot than the auto parts store!
heat shrink tube, You need it, and a lot of help.
I don't know what year they stopped putting them in, but the tool box under the passenger seat will hold three thirty caliber ammo cans nicely with room left over for dog toys. They are air tight. The cans that is, not the dog toys.
I'm using one for tools and packed with rags/paper towels to prevent them from damaging one another. The second can is for spare parts, also packed in rags or paper towels. The third is for tie downs, first aid, toilet paper (a.k.a. emergency oil filter) and plastic bags.
Did you know that digital V/ohm meters are poor choices for working on turn signals? You don't really need to be able to read one all that well. They are essential for diagnosing electrical problems. Check for power, check for continuity, check for short to ground (the reason your battery keepsdraining/you keep blowing fuses). The only thing you really need to read is voltage and you can discover it by simply putting it to your battery when you first get it, then mark the face for the appropriate scale. For continuity/short to ground set it to ohms X ten-thousand if the needle jumps when it should/shouldn't you have your answer.
Perhaps some five minute JB weld and super duper glue as well.
I read about it but never saw it until I dug it out of the dirt. There IS a VIN on the frame.
Duct tape and tie wire lol
$12 Jerry Can mounts. Have seen the same product as much as $130 on "4 wheel drive" sites...
Go to Radio shack and pick up one of thier butane soldering irons. They run around $20 and really come in handy. I carry one with me all the time.
Don't forget the solder.
Aspirin and Band-aids!
yes don't forget the strippers
had another pict but that would have needed to be censored
Ok that Jerry can mount is great!!! I have got to buy that! Is that a good web site, has anyone bought from there before?
If your running an HEI carry an extra coil and module, and always turn your key off or disconnect the battery when working on electical issues!
Never forget Duct-Tape!
rubbers have more than one use just some aint as fun
I have to add my two cents to this one. Since it is generally electrical related, a chunk of wire long enough to go from your battery to any where else with an alligator clip on each end.
I love my electrical tackle box, sometimes during the commercials on the speed channel I go in the garage to just look at it... I would add a can of paint on electrical tape. After soldering a butt connection and shrinking the tubing down on it, I like to give it one clean swipe with the liquid tape to waterproof the connection...
Never forget Duct-Tape!
Personally I would have gorilla tape it holds better and last longer.
I once had to rob some vacuum hose off the windshield wipers in an old car I had, to repair a fuel hose that had rotted. Does this qualify?
Perhaps a little airline size bottle of Black Jack
CABLE TIES , HEAT SRINK,
Separate names with a comma.
