  1. Ok, now I understand. See I knew it would be simple. Thanks Young Ed.
  2. Here is my problem. I have a small motorcycle bluetooth unit that I am trying to wire up. Seems simple enough except for an electrical illiterate like me. It has 4 wires- White-remote control antenna, Red-ACC power, Black-negative. Now this is where I have the problem. The last wire is yellow with an inline fuse and is listed as positive+. If the red wire is power how can the yellow be positive? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  3. No problem Tom. This information will be helpful too.
  4. Currently working on the manifolds. The intake has a fine threaded hole on top toward the rear of the engine. Can anyone tell me what it’s for?
  5. Hey Merle,

    Do you still have the pic's of the tonneau cover installation?

      I did a quick search of my posts and found the one I did on this topic back in the day. That was quicker than searching through my picture files to find them.

      Thanks Merle. That was a big help. Finally getting back to work on my 52 starting with the disc brake upgrade. I bought the complete setup from Rusty Hope around 6 years ago so I guess it’s time. 

  6. It’s still 6v. I installed the battery the same as the previous one. I was thinking the same thing about having the battery installed incorrectly but double checking it seems correct given the different sizes of the terminals and the previous battery orientation. Everything worked fine the last time it was running.
  7. Well after about eight years I’ve decided that 2020 is the year I’m going to get my 52 back on the road. The first thing I did was to get a new battery. I got it hooked up, jumped in the seat, turned the key and the first thing I noticed was my gas gage pegged to the far right full position. The gas tank is not full. This just doesn’t seem right so I turned the key off and sat down to ask everyone their thoughts. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  8. Has anyone had this clearance issue that used the Jeep MC?
  9. While this isn't my truck I thought everyone would enjoy it. I took this picture yesterday at a local pumpkin festival. It does not look like it has been repainted. Note the pinstripe on the grill.
  10. Lookin good Bud! Glad to see you finally got your pictures posted. I have been watching for them.
  11. Now I remember how I got the idea that my 52 would have the "Big Horn" hood ornament. The picture Reg posted doesn't say weather it's for a car or truck.
  12. The tailgate was a little dusty and I didn't realize it would be so obvious in the pictures. That's what the tiny spots are.
  13. Here are a couple of pictures of my tailgate. I'm very happy about the way they turned out.
  14. Yea, life sometimes gets in the way of doing thing we want to do. I plan on pulling it back off and paint the red inside. I have some paint left over from when I painted the tail gate. I should post a picture of that. It turned out nice. I haven't put it back on because I hadn't decided what to do about the lettering weather to try and paint them black or just leave it as is so I don't screw up a perfectly good paint job.
  15. Thanks for all the support. I was always unsure which one was correct. Somewhere I thought I read that the “big horn” one was correct but now I know.
