1/2,...chasing sensor malfunctions.  IAT and MAP giving me codes,.... :technical:

1/4,... swapped out iat sensor, checked map connections, reset memory and cranked it up.  Started well, sunk to idle and stalled.  Adjusted idle, restart and gassed it a bit and it held idle.  Few times like that and nice idle now.  Sweet.  On to more tidbits,...

farging around with my radiator fan wiring.  Found that the fan isn't working so what little time Ive had, been tracing that.  My wife keeps asking me when I'm going to finish it.  I keep asking her when am I going to get some garage time,....

___________________________________________________________
Got fan wired in finally after putting too much time into that :technical:

Front brake sorted after two calipers changes and crappy master cylinder,.... still did a little victory jig on that one though :laugh:
___________________________________________________________

Wired in tail light signals and brake light weeeeee

____________________
Little more odds n ends. Wiring fun.

Got one done finally.  Took my time since this was my 1st one.  Sonic springs, new seals and fork oil.  Actually super easy to do.  Should knock the second one out in no time.
